Agile Certified Practitioner Certification Program (PMI-ACP) - Course 1 of 8 - Agile Project Management Essentials

What you'll learn:
  • understand characteristics of agile project management, distinguish between primary and secondary agile values, recognize agile principles, recognize the differences between defined and empirical methodologies, and compare the agile triangle of constraints with that of traditional project management.
  • compare the phases of traditional project management with those of the agile framework , understand how a project manager's responsibilities will change on an agile project, and distinguish between common agile methodologies.

Welcome to the Agile Project Management Essentials course. This is the first course of a series of eight that will form the Agile Project Management - The PMI-ACP (Agile Certified Practitioner) Certification Program.

Why Agile Project Management?

Agile projects are characterized by the use of short work iterations and incremental development of products, made possible by focusing on business priorities and customer value. The course provides an introduction to common agile methodologies, describes the relationship between defined and empirical processes, and highlights the key difference in regard to the triangle of constraints of agile versus traditional methods.

Guidance on how to take steps towards adopting an agile project management approach for those who currently use a traditional, plan-driven methodology is included. The relevant section discusses some common myths and misconceptions about agile development approaches, identifies factors to consider when deciding whether to adopt agile practices, and explains the general agile practices that a company may want to adopt.
