PMC 450 – Agile Project Management Online

Agile Certified Practioner (PMI - ACP ® )

Agile project management is an iterative approach to planning and guiding project processes. The primary benefit of Agile Project Management is the ability to respond to issues as they arise throughout the course of the project. Making a necessary change to a project at the right time can save resources and, ultimately, help deliver a successful project on time and within budget. 

The use of Agile as an approach to managing projects has increased dramatically over the last several years. Research has shown that the use of Agile has tripled since 2008 and the demonstrated benefits associated with Agile can lead to a decrease in product defects, improved team productivity, and increased delivery of business value.

Bryant’s program will introduce the Agile principles and practices required to successfully manage change, improve communication, reduce cost, increase efficiency and demonstrate value to project customers and stakeholders.

If you use Agile practices in your projects, or your organization is adopting Agile approaches to project management, the PMI-ACP ® certification may be right for you. The PMI-ACP recognizes knowledge of agile principles, practices and tools and techniques across agile methodologies.

This course focuses on the six (6) Domain/Task Areas, Tools and Techniques and Knowledge and Skills.  Bryant’s three-day program will satisfy the educational requirements and will also prepare you for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) certification.
