This is an official APMG Agile Project Management Foundation course which provides detailed knowledge of Agile Project Management and prepares for the official APMG exam that our students can take at the end of the training.
This course has been developed to provide attendees with the grounding to apply agile project management within a wide range of organizations. The course caters to the needs of members of the Senior Management Team through to the program and project management team members.
The agile method is a flexible method that the Program and Project management can tailor for any type and size of activity and offers an excellent management foundation for any member of the team.

There is increasing pressure on organizations to deliver working solutions to business problems and opportunities in ever-shorter timescales without compromising quality. The process by which solutions are developed must be agile and deliver what the business needs when it needs it, but at the same time the focus for the organization must remain on the successful delivery of projects, not just ‘going agile’.
Most of the agile methods provide little or no guidance on how to manage a project in an agile way. Indeed for some agile approaches, the whole concept of a ‘project’ and ‘project management’ is seen as anti-agile!
DSDM Atern is the exception – it has always worked from the base of a project and a lifecycle, but has successfully merged the concepts of corporate constraints and process with agile management and delivery.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
Agile Project Management Handbook
Management of Value, published by The Stationery Office, gives the official guidance for the method.
Agile Project Management: Foundation Courseware
On the first day of the course each delegate will be provided with a pack containing full set of course slides, individual exercises and activities serving as a revision tool and enabling them to practise the key elements contained within the Agile Project Management method.
The courseware also contains an extensive collection of sample foundation questions. Which will enable those who are a bit rusty at exams to get a feel for the type of questions that will be asked. There are also exercises that are designed to familiarise you with the Agile Handbook and to help you understand the method in a stimulating and interesting way. The exam fee is included in the price.
Following the course delegates will understand the Agile Project management method and will be able to organise, plan and control projects quickly and effectively in accordance with the agile methodology. With the successful implementation of the method the management team will have the capability to deliver the projects in a way by which ensures a viable solution is delivered.
Atern reduces the chance of scope creep by establishing firm foundations on which to build that are approved by key stakeholders. Development is then started in a controlled manner with clear objectives.
Senior Managers attending the course will be able to make informed decisions on the appropriate application of agile management by being provided the accurate and relevant information in a timely manner based on clearly prioritised acceptance criteria. They will understand not only their responsibilities but also the responsibilities of the other members of the team and the contribution they will make to the delivery of the project.
