Agile Project Management

“more about business…less about IT”

what is agile project management
What is Agile project management?

Agile Project Management (AgilePM) is the new training course and qualification certified and accredited by the APMG.

Developed in partnership with the DSDM Consortium it is based upon the tried and tested principles of DSDM Atern and was developed to work alongside more traditional approaches such as PRINCE2®.

AgilePM explains how an agile project is managed and clarifies the different management styles needed to deliver successful agile projects.

Most agile methods in the marketplace to date, such as Scrum and XP are software specific and work only at a product delivery level. Because AgilePM is based on DSDM Atern, the only agile method that works at a project management level, it provides a full project management framework that includes roles and responsibilities and a full project lifecycle.

AgilePM can be used on any type of project and of any size

Agile Project Management provides structure and rigour whilst still enabling the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by agile and because AgilePM is fully scalable it provides perfect integration with PRINCE2.

By flexing the deliverables on a project and through the various techniques used such as timeboxing and MoSCoW prioritisation, AgilePM delivers projects on time and on budget whilst protecting the quality of the final deliverables.

Facilitated workshops –bringing together all stakeholders to discuss the requirements of the project and to help identify the potential solutions to be delivered by the project.

Modelling –approaches to developing the solution using a lot of visualisation and involving the business or customer as much as possible.

MOSCOW (M = must; S = should; C = could; W = won’t have this time) -prioritisation technique to reach a common understanding on the importance of each requirement.

Prototyping – create examples of the solution from different perspectives in order to converge on an accurate solution.

Timeboxing – controlling the project by breaking the project down into small timeboxes which each have clear objectives and deliverables.

Ensures you know about the fast growing trend in project management – the number of Agile Project Management exam candidates doubled 2011 to 2012

Provides you with an excellent understanding of how to manage a project that is being delivered in an agile development environment:

  • If you already have experience of project management it will give you the opportunity to consider how to integrate managing the creation of the project deliverables with managing the overall project according to the standards of your organisation
  • If you are new to project management it will give you an easy to use project management approach that aligns to best practice in project management i.e. PRINCE2
what do people say about the course
What do people say about the course?

“I am a Scrum Master but I wanted more structure for handling problems – Scrum assumes everything is going to go well but I want to know what I can do if there are problems”

“I wanted to be able to make an educated decision on what project management approach to use – Agile is often mentioned so I wanted to see for myself what is offers”

“I have done PRINCE2 and MSP but was looking for something that bridges the gap between development and project management”

“This qualification is offered by the same organisation that does the PRINCE2 exams so I thought it was a good qualification to get”

“To be honest Agile has become a bit of a buzzword and I wanted to find out what it meant”

Are qualifications important?

Agile is growing in importance as a core qualification requirement for many project management roles – and not just IT project management. Examples of what you might see in an agile job description:

  • “Maintain momentum for project delivery in a dynamic and fast moving environment”
  • “Drive Agile Methodology throughout the project/teams - ensuring the development teams are practising the core agile principles of collaboration, prioritisation, team accountability and visibility”
  • “Organising and facilitating project planning, daily stand-up meetings, reviews, retrospectives, sprints and release planning”

The Agile Project Management Qualification is evidence that you have current knowledge of project management best practice (the qualification was launched in November 2010) and you are committed to your personal development
