Adopt an agile approach to programme management with our AgilePgM training and certification
The world of project and programme management has been evolving over recent years with agile methods and practices become increasingly popular as organizations seek to respond faster and more effectively to ever-increasing change initiatives.
This is particularly true of project management and our AgilePM certifications are proving particularly popular. But what about programme management, or large-scale change initiatives? What guidance and certifications are available for programme managers wishing to demonstrate their agile credentials?
APMG International has partnered with the Agile Business Consortium to create AgilePgM – guidance and a supporting training and certification scheme for agile programme management.
The guidance – much like the sister project management guidance – draws heavily on the content of the Consortium's Agile Project Framework – a long established, internationally recognized framework for agile project delivery.
AgilePgM provides programme managers with a disciplined but flexible agile approach to the management of transformational organizational change, allowing for iterative and incremental delivery of outputs and benefits. The governance model, contained within the guidance, ensures a programme will capture its vision, whilst empowering teams to work without undue interference. Built on firm foundations, the programme can evolve and react to business change in our increasingly dynamic world.
AgilePgM guidance and training courses:
- Lay the foundations for successful agile programmes
- Explain how an agile programme can be planned and managed
- Clarify the different management styles needed for successful agile programmes (compared to 'traditional' programmes)
- Provide integration with Managing Successful Programmes
