Based on the proven fundamentals within DSDM Atern, the certification provides the ability to deliver Agile Projects in organisations requiring standards, rigour and visibility around Project Management, while at the same time enabling the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile.
Agile Project Management delivers with time as a fixed point, to an agreed quality standard by prioritisation of requirements and regular time boxed delivery with reviews. Agile Project Managers act to facilitate delivery with regular communication with the customer and those developing the solution.
This course covers the AgilePM certification by APMG and the DSDM Consortium that has been created to stand alone or sit alongside PRINCE2® as an approach to project management. The course is equally divided between the theory of the new wave of agile project management and the practical experience of the techniques and disciplines involved.
The course covers the AgilePM syllabus, which includes the following topics:
- The Fundamentals and the Philosophy
- The Principles
- The Lifecycle and Products
- Team structures
- Roles and Responsibilities
- MoSCoW and Timeboxing
- Lifecycle Configuration
- Estimation and Measurement
- Quality and Maintainability
- Planning, Control and Risk
- Tailoring Agile Project Management
There is no pre-requisite required for the foundation level, however in order to continue onto the Practitioner exam, a pass is required at Foundation. Pre-course study is recommended approximately 10 hours to enable a depth of understanding.
After successful completion of the Foundation course, delegates will gain an understanding (Foundation Level) of the following areas. The Practitioner training adds depth to this understanding enabling delegates to apply this knowledge to a given organisational situation.

- When and why to select Agile Project Management
- Plan and organise the Agile Project Management projects
- Successfully complete a project using the required Agile Life-cycle Processes, Roles, Management Products and Practices/techniques.
- Exam Technique and Preparation.
