What is Agile Project Management?

An Agile project is completed in small sections called iterations. Each iteration is reviewed by a project team, which includes the client as well as employees. This is done to see what steps to take next in a project. Iterations are usually scheduled to be completed within two weeks.

The main benefit of an Agile project is the ability to respond to issues as they occur during your project. Making changes to a project at the right time saves resources and helps to deliver a successful project on time and within budget.

While on the course, you'll sit both the Foundation and Practitioner exams. The Foundation certification provides you with the core principles needed for a successful project, while allowing a degree of scope and agility. The Practitioner certification gives you further in-depth knowledge on how to apply and implement these principles on any project.

Please note: Firebrand Training is an APMG Accredited Organisation.

This APMAgile course is provided in conjunction with Thynk - also an APMG Accredited Training Organisation.
