Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) is well established as the leading framework and certification for agile project management. It combines flexibility with proven success for successful agile project delivery and increasing numbers of organisations are embracing its tools and frameworks. Key benefits often attributed to Agile include improved revenue and speed to market, developing the right product/solution (through iterative development and incremental delivery) and increased collaboration, customer satisfaction and return on investment from projects and other change initiatives.

Based on the proven fundamentals within the DSDM Agile Project Framework, the certification provides the ability to deliver Agile Projects in organisations requiring standards, rigour and visibility around project management, while at the same time enabling the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile.

The course will:

Successful completion of the Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) Foundation & Practitioner examinations leads to certification as a Registered AgilePM® Practitioner.

*Our pass rate for AgilePM over the past 2 years (2020-2021) has been 100% at Foundation and 98% at Practitioner level.

Our highly regarded Practitioner and Combined Foundation & Practitioner courses are structured so that the Practitioner exam is taken directly after the training element (as per Foundation but at the end of the week). We prefer this approach to the post course online exam booking system as it ensures that the course content is fresh in the mind and enables delegates to leave having completed both the course and examination.

January 2022 (virtual) – “Despite being remote, the course was interactive and well scheduled with regular breaks which meant my concentration didn’t lapse. The trainer was great and the real world examples provided helped make the content relatable. Highly recommended.”
“Excellent use of real life projects to back up the Agile principles.”
January 2021 (virtual) – “Challenging course but well structured and taught very well. Virtual learning did not provide any blockers or issues.”
“It is a heavy course with a lot of new information and concepts to learn. However, our trainer used real life examples, a logical structure to put everything together, and repetition to make sure we understood not only the concepts but as well the practical application which was great.”
October 2020 (virtual) – “Course was well delivered with good examples and practical hints for project management from an experienced professional.”
June 2020 (virtual) – “Great course. I did feel that I could have taken the foundation exam on the morning of the second day or even the end of the first day – to give a little more time for the practitioner course. I think the inclusion of the practise questions and discussion of the rationale surrounding them was extremely effective as a learning tool.”
“Excellent course for updating knowledge of Agile processes. I hope that after lock down is over BMC would consider at least one [virtual] course a year in each course for people who can not make it to Bristol.”
“Top notch instructor who made the content easy to assimilate.” “Gary is one of the best instructors I have had (if I pass!)” [Editor’s note – he did!]

Benefits – organisation?

Traditional Project Management is based on the idea that companies have a long time before bringing out new products, and any product will generate revenue for many years. For many industries the traditional model no longer applies, where companies now have to bring new products to market quickly, and expect to constantly refine the product or innovate in order to retain market share. Companies use Agile techniques to help meet this challenge successfully.
