Event Details

Introduction

The use of agile as an approach to managing projects has been increasing dramatically over the last several years. The PMI-ACP® is PMI’s fastest growing certification, and it’s no wonder. Organizations that are highly agile and responsive to market dynamics complete more of their projects successfully than their slower-moving counterparts — 75 percent versus 56 percent — as shown in our 2015 Pulse of the Profession® report. Furthermore, research demonstrates the value that agile can have in decreasing product defects, improving team productivity, and increasing delivery of business value.

This course provides the information that you need to prepare for PMI’s credential, the Agile Certified Professional (PMI-ACP). At the same time, it gives you the knowledge that you need to improve your project management competency using agile techniques.

Who Should Attend?

Project management practitioners who are seeking to:

  • Demonstrate to employers their level of professionalism in agile practices of project management
  • Increase their professional versatility in both waterfall and agile techniques
  • Hold a certification that is more credible than existing entry-level, training or exam-only based offering.
