AgilePM®

Organizations providing services need to be efficient, effective, excellent, and equitable, with the customer at the heart of everything they do. A customer focus principle plays just as important a role for small frontline units as it would for large corporate organizations. The objective of this course is to provide the delegate with the basic components of what contributes to customer service excellence. When you understand your role of being a catalyst, you will become a Strong Relationship builder and an authority in your subject. You will understand where people are coming from and be very good at setting and exceeding expectations. You will become a strong networker and be sensitive and tuned in to the feeling of the customer and be able to articulate the real issues to your own organization.

  • Explain how to lay the foundations for successful Agile projects
  • Explain how an Agile project is managed
  • Clarify the different management styles needed for successful Agile projects
  • Provide integration with PRINCE2®

One advantage of Agile Project Management for the organization is that they can adopt an Agile approach that has a track record of successful management and delivery in the corporate environment, and an approach that complements and works with existing corporate processes, such as PRINCE2®, quality and audit processes, etc.

Agile Project Management provides Foundation and Practitioner level certifications, and so enable a candidate, or team, to progress from a basic level, to a more advanced, applied level of knowledge. For those who wish to progress even further, the close link between Agile Project Management and DSDM Atern allows an individual to become a DSDM Atern Advanced Practitioner, a certification based on experience, and an oral exam which examines both practical experience and theoretical knowledge.
