Exploring the AgilePM Foundation Exam in 2022
You’re looking for Project Management certification. You want to earn a credential that proves that you have what it takes to be successful in today’s fast-moving technology projects. You want to distinguish yourself and accelerate your career. And you want to be agile.
That’s where AgilePM Foundation comes in.
In short, when we talk about ‘Agile’ Project Management, we are using an approach for leading change that focuses on working software over comprehensive documentation, customer collaboration over contract negotiation, and responding to change over following a plan.
By passing your Agile Project Management (AgilePM) Foundation course, you demonstrate your knowledge of the principles and practices in Agile Project Management. In an environment where agile ways of working are becoming ever more popular, an AgilePM certification will make you more marketable to employers and help you to stand out from the crowd.
As a leading certification (With over 175,000 exams taken and counting), AgilePM is a rapidly growing certification that is recognised all over the world, so no matter where your career takes you, your qualification will go with you.
What’s on the AgilePM Foundation Course?
The Agile Project Management AgilePM Foundation course teaches aspiring and current project managers about the various tools and techniques used in agile projects to plan, track, and ensure delivery of quality products in shorter timeframes using a flexible, iterative approach to product development. There are no-prerequisites to take the course, but you would benefit from a little project management knowledge – our APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) is ideal for that.
During the course, you’ll look at the DSDM (Dynamic System Development Method) Framework, which is a tailorable Agile approach to how projects are managed. This includes the history and principles of the DSDM framework, the roles and responsibilities of agile team members, and the tools and techniques that are used in order to maintain agile ways of working.
After passing the AgilePM Foundation exam, you will receive the official AgilePM Foundation certificate and digital badge, so you can showcase your knowledge and skills to your colleagues both inside and outside your organization, receiving the acknowledgement and recognition you deserve for your hard work.
