Course/learning journey

PMI®- ACP Certification Preparation

Agile is quickly becoming the go-to method of project management for a wide range of industries and some companies expect an Agile certification from their Project Managers. The certification can be used in a variety of roles, and any member of an agile team may be eligible to apply. It is also important to note that it can be used in a variety of projects and industries, not just in IT. While the traditional project management methods answer questions like: what, by when, how much, who etc, the Agile project management methods answer questions like: what is the value for the customer or what is my added value. ​​​​
