What is Agile Project Management?
Businesses all over the world are realising the benefits of adopting an Agile culture within their organisations. Agile Project Management methodologies can speed up the development process, bring products to market quicker, increase customer satisfaction, improve communication between teams and reduce risk and spend to a business.
A certified Agile Project Manager will have the right skills, mindset and behaviours to achieve great results and can be a huge asset to any business. Individuals who work in Agile companies report better job satisfaction and project success thanks to this positive and proven approach.
What is the purpose of Agile Project Management?
First and foremost, Agile as a concept refers to ‘ways of working’ that include certain behavioural and mindset changes to enable it to succeed. Technology is a basic enabler of Agile ways of working and Open Source software allows for sharing between teams and stakeholders. The process of project management in an Agile organisation is all about openness, a test and learn approach and a strong focus on customer feedback. So these ‘ways of working’ can be applied to any business within any industry.
It’s also worth keeping in mind that any individual can adopt Agile Project Management methodologies, even if they don’t work in an Agile company. This is why an AgilePM certification is suitable and useful for anyone.
How can an Agile Project Management certification help me?
For individuals, an AgilePM certification can enhance your career path and provide significant opportunities for progression. It shows that you’re a qualified expert in your field and can improve your chances of being recruited into an Agile organisation too.
Businesses can benefit by providing an AgilePM certification as an option for employees to aid retention of staff and development of skills. More qualified Project Managers breed better results, so an investment in an AgilePM training course can lead to better outcomes for your business.
What Agile Project Management certifications are there?
At Training ByteSize, we offer three AgilePM courses; an AgilePM foundation Course, AgilePM practitioner Course and a combination course that incorporates both.
How can I get an Agile Project Management certification?
There are multiple options available for you to undertake an AgilePM course with Training ByteSize. Our online courses are incredibly engaging and use a mix of audio, film, animation, pictures and diagrams; this ensures they are suitable for all types of learners from visual to auditory.
Classroom courses, either face to face or virtual, are great for kinesthetic learners and those who want to engage with the trainer and other students. The learning is intense and therefore perfect for those wanting to quickly build their skills and achieve certification.
Blended learning is a hybrid option which combines these two learning styles, enabling you to prepare for the course with online learning, then cover major topics and themes with the trainer in a classroom setting.
If you are looking to train a team of people, you’ll find that our onsite training is a viable and cost effective option for you. If you would like to find out more about this option please call our team on +44 (0)1270 626330 or chat to us now using the icon on the bottom right of your screen.
