PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)®

The Agile development process emerged as an alternative to traditional project management mdthodologies. Though the traditional methodologies worked well for small projects, but as the IT industry evolved, development projects became more complex.

Agile helps you organize your project and accomplish the desired results within the stipulated time frame. It helps you manage your professional front with upfront and smart attitude without any impediments to your success.

Agile principles and practices include:

  • Early, measurable return on investment through defined, iterative delivery of product increments.
  • High visibility of project progress allows early identification and resolution or monitoring of problems.
  • Continuous involvement of the customer throughout the product development cycle.
  • Empowerment of the business owner to make decisions needed to meet goals.
  • Adaptation to changing business needs, giving more influence over requirement changes.
  • Reduced product and process waste.
