PMI-ACP Training for Project DevelopmentRegister Now
As the world of Agile is growing day by day in project management, the reputation as project management practitioners has increased in different magnitudes. Agile Certified Practitioner embraces Agile as a technique for managing projects successfully. The PMI-ACP training and certification recognizes an individual’s expertise in using Agile practices in their projects, while demonstrating their increased professional adaptability through Agile tools and techniques. In addition, the PMI-ACP certification conveys a higher level of professional credibility as it requires a combination of Agile training, experience working on Agile projects, and examination of Agile principles, practices, tools, and techniques. This global certification also supports individuals in meeting the needs of organizations that rely on project practitioners to apply a diversity of methods to their project management. Organizations which are highly Agile and responsive to market dynamics completed more of their projects successfully than their slower-moving counterparts’ 75 percent versus 56 percent as shown in our 2015 Pulse of the Profession report. The PMI-ACP spans many approaches to agile such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, extreme programming (XP) and test-driven development (TDD.) So, it will intensify your versatility, wherever your projects may take you.
