Agile project management training

Agile Project Management Overview

AgilePM provides the ability to deliver Agile projects in organisations requiring standards, rigour and visibility around Project Management, whilst at the same time enabling the fast pace of change and empowerment that is integral to Agile.

AgilePM addresses the needs of management, project managers, team leaders, business analysts and the PMO working in an Agile environment, based on the DSDM® (Dynamic System Development Method) Agile Project Framework.

The Foundation course lays a solid foundation for managing projects using the DSDM Agile Project Framework and prepares candidates for the AgilePM Foundation certification.

The Practitioner course builds on the AgilePM Foundation course, providing additional depth of understanding, and prepares candidates for the AgilePM Practitioner certification exam.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

Foundation
This course will enable participants to:

  • Adopt an Agile approach and philosophy
  • Work in line with DSDM philosophy and principles
  • Work effectively with DSDM roles, process and products
  • Describe how DSDM Agile projects are managed
  • Prepare for and sit the Foundation examination

Practitioner
The Practitioner course prepares participants to undertake and pass the AgilePM Practitioner Examination. The course follows Section 2 of the AgilePM Handbook V2 – “Digging Deeper”, and includes a review, consolidation of concepts and exam questions for the Practitioner level certification.

Note: The Practitioner course is an examination preparation course and focuses on the application of AgilePM to prepare candidates for the Practitioner examination.

KEY TOPICS

The courses explore the following content with the Foundation level focusing on the theory, whilst Practitioner considers the application of the method:

Agile approach and philosophy
The Agile mindset. Being Agile vs Doing Agile. Delivering solutions using an Agile approach. Which Agile approach should you use.

The DSDM Agile Project Framework
The DSDM approach, principles and processes, and how they are applied throughout the project. Application and tailoring of relevant AgilePM aspects in context to enhance project success.

Working with DSDM Roles and products
Roles and responsibilities. Working effectively as an Agile team. Collaborating and communicating for success. The project manager’s role across the DSDM lifecycle.

Managing Agile projects using DSDM
DSDM planning concepts including outcome-based planning and iterative development. Defining requirements through user stories, prioritisation and estimation. Tracking and control concepts and techniques e.g. management by exception, timeboxing and stand-ups. Managing quality and risk.

As part of PM-Partners’ new integrated learning solution, this course offers students the option to attend our bespoke classroom in person or virtually by dialling in from a remote location. Trainers are skilled at both delivery methods and use the latest in virtual technology to simultaneously provide participants with the same interactive, multi-faceted and challenging learning experience. Whichever delivery mode learners choose, comprehension and recall techniques will be used to provide them with a solid understanding of AgilePM.

For group bookings, courses can be customised to suit your requirements and conducted onsite at your premises, at our training centre, or virtually. 

Virtual training: You can learn more about our virtual delivery here.
