 PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)

Today's teams require vastly different leadership and manament skills from Project Managers to truly achieve success. You can't simply tell everyone what to do. Instead, you need to be a strong coach, "a change agent",a very effective communicator. Agile is no longer a grassroot movement to change software development. PMI is embracing Agile, recognizing the significant positive impact it has had on delivering better results for customers. 

Why an Agile certification?
In 2008, before developing the new PMI-ACP certification, PMI conducted a study of 600 organizations representing 900 project management practitioners. It later compared that study to one it conducted in 2011. Of the 2008 respondents, 15% were using Agile methodologies; of the 2011 respondents, 30% were. This growth prompted PMI to look into whether it made sense to create an Agile certification. In turn, it put together a steering committee of Agile thought leaders, many of whom are not PMI members, to look into what the organization might offer for Agile practitioners. The steering committee included a co-author of the Agile Manifesto, people involved with lean and kanban tools, leaders in theDynamic Systems Development Method, and other Agile experts.

Through 18 months of research and preparation, the steering committee found the industry did indeed need a certification to fill a specific Agile niche -- the codification of what Agile means -- in order to create a common language across Agile organizations. It also was necessary to show that certification holders were not only aware of Agile, but also trained and experienced in actually executing Agile methodologies: No amount of training or examinations can replace good old-fashioned experience.

PMI research revealed:
  • 68% of the organizations using Agile techniques would find value in an Agile certification.
  • 63% of hiring managers would encourage their project managers to pursue an Agile certification
Agile Project Management will help you to:
  • Decide if your organization is ready to manage projects differently from previous projects
  • Determine whether your customers will be active participants on a daily basis
  • Identify any shortcomings your global team may have
What will you learn?
  • Assess which projects are suitable for an agile environment
  • Determine the readiness of an organization, team, and customer
  • Define user stories and elaborate on test cases to ensure the requirements
  • Provide story point estimates for each feature and determine the team’s velocity
  • Deliver status reports to management
  • Adapt and manage changes based on the customer’s request

If any participant is eligible for the PMI’s new PMI Agile Certified Practitioner, (PMI-ACP) the training and hands on practice in this program will prepare them to get certified at any time.
