Agile Project Management Foundation Training Course

Combine Flexibility With Proven Process For Successful Agile Project Delivery


The APMG-International AgilePM® certification aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be Agile.

It aims to combine flexibility with proven process for successful Agile Project Delivery.

The AgilePM guidance, developed in partnership with DSDM Consortium, offers a practical and repeatable methodology that achieves an ideal balance between the standards, rigour and visibility required for good project management, and the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile.

The focus of Agile Project Management is on developing solutions incrementally enabling project teams to react effectively to changing requirements, whilst empowering project personnel and encouraging increased collaboration and ownership.

The guidance is based on DSDM Consortium's Agile Project Framework and is underpinned by DSDM's eight principles for effective Agile Project Delivery:

  • Focus on the business need
  • Collaborate
  • Build incrementally from firm foundations
  • Communicate continuously and clearly
  • Deliver on time
  • Never compromise quality
  • Deliver iterativeley
  • Demonstrate control
