This course covers the AgilePM® certification by APMG and the DSDM Consortium that has been created to sit alongside PRINCE2® as an approach to project management. The course is equally divided between the theory of the new wave of agile project management and the practical experience of the techniques and disciplines involved.
AgilePM® covers the certification by APMG and the DSDM Consortium and the scheme aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be agile.
This two-day course has been re-structured to suit the v2 handbook and covers the Agile Foundation syllabus, including the following topics:
- Choosing the right Agile approach
- Philosophy, principles and project variables
- Preparing for success
- The DSDM process
- The people - DSDM roles and responsibilities
- Key practices - MoSCoW and Timeboxing
- Planning and control throughout the lifecycle
- Facilitated workshops
- Modelling and iterative development
- People, teams and interactions
Delegates are required to spend approximately 10 hours studying pre-course materials in order to be well prepared for the course.
