APMG AgilePM Foundation & Practitioner

 

AgilePM is an agile project management approach developed by APMG and the Agile Business Consortium. It is derived from the DSDM Agile Project Framework and is designed to support APMG’s AgilePM Foundation and Practitioner certification programs.

Where agile projects can sometimes run a high risk of delay and budget overruns due to informality of project processes, AgilePM combines the agile way of working with DSDM’s Agile Project Framework. Integrating DSDM philosophy, principles, processes, roles, products and practices, to create a flexible project management approach for agile projects.
