AgilePM (Agile Project management) is the fastest-growing approach to managing projects. That’s why the APMG Agile Foundation training course is now one of the most popular Agile courses in Australia. It has gone from being the toy of small IT start-up companies to being a well-recognised and highly useful approach to almost every type of project, regardless of size or industry.

  • The benefits of an Agile approach
  • The typical life cycle of a project framed around the Agile method.
  • How to control an Agile project whilst maintaining the flexibility that should come with it.
  • The  philosophy and principles of Agile Project Management
  • The use of stand-ups, timeboxes/sprints and retrospectives
  • How to Use MoSCoW prioritisation.

  • About iterative and incremental development,
  • The recommended roles and responsibilities in an Agile Project.
  • The different management styles required.

In the world of project management, Agile approaches are fast taking over. They are the most common approaches used in IT projects and are rapidly moving outside IT to areas such as marketing, HR, legal departments and other forms of projects.

Based on the proven fundamentals within DSDM Atern, the approach provides the ability to deliver Agile Projects in organisations requiring visibility and discipline around the tasks associated with managing projects. At the same time, it allows the fast pace, flexibility and empowerment offered within the Agile environment..
