AgilePM® Passport offers a practical and repeatable methodology that achieves an ideal balance between the standards, rigour and visibility required for good project management, and the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by agile. It works alongside more formal project management approaches such as PRINCE2® Project Management and complements quality processes such as ISO90001 and CMMI.
SPOCE’s self- study products aim to provide you with a straightforward route to becoming a fully certificated Registered Practitioner in your own time and at your own pace.
The Agile Project Management course will:
- Explain how to lay the foundations for successful agile projects
- Explain how an agile project is managed
- Clarify the different management styles needed for successful agile projects (compared to ‘traditional’ projects)
- Provide integration with PRINCE2® Training
The course includes:
- 10 modules with associated interactive and video presented lessons
- Notes to support each lesson and references to the AgilePM® handbook
- Module level exam simulation directly aligned to the AgilePM® syllabus
- Online support, forums, chat and progress reports
- AgilePM® Foundation and Practitioner exam simulations
- Interactive exercises to consolidate the learning
- Extensive Exam Approaches module to support the "Objective Testing" Practitioner exam
How long should I study for?
To complete the Introduction level competency, we recommend about 5 hours for learning and reflection, 20 hours for Foundation level and approximately 30 hours (cumulative) for Practitioner level study and qualification. This study will be a mixture of computer-based training using the e-Learning platform, reference to the AgilePM® manual and other support documents and completion of the practical tasks and tests. Depending on other commitments, you will require anything from 2 weeks to 6 months to complete this learning.
Purchasing this product provides you with a license to use AgilePM® Passport and the e-Learning platform for a period of 6 months from the date of purchase. During this period the product is supported to ensure that the content is consistent with the method syllabus.
Agile Project Management provides a flexible yet controlled process to deliver solutions. It enables organisations to gain the benefits of an agile approach without introducing unnecessary risks. This enables a measured and balanced change, keeping what is good in the current organisation and retaining existing good practices around project management and delivery whilst gaining the benefits of a more agile way of working. AgilePM® combines effective use of a team’s knowledge together with techniques such as iterative development and modelling to achieve tight project delivery timescales. It offers flexibility while still recognising the processes and controls that give you, as a project manager, confidence to run your projects effectively.
