Agile Project Management Practitioner And Foundation 4-day Classroom

17th December 2018 @ 08:00 - 20th December 2018 @ 17:00



As the pace of change accelerates and pressure continues to build for businesses to be Innovative and deliver greater value, traditional project management methods that may have worked in more stable and predictable environments become much less reliable. The project management team needs to be able to keep pace, and respond quickly whilst at the same time demonstrating control and reliability. Agile Project Management offers a practical and repeatable methodology, which combines the discipline of a process covering the whole project lifecycle with the real-life practicality afforded by a flexible and more collaborative approach.

Based on the proven fundamentals within DSDM Atern, this certification provides standards, rigour and visibility around project management, while encouraging the early delivery of benefits through empowerment of the team. If you are responsible for, or involved with, projects, then this course will offer you valuable skills and insights into this collaborative and flexible approach.
