Agile Project Management provides an approach that offers agility but retains the concepts of a project, project delivery and project management. It works alongside more formal project management approaches such as PRINCE2® and complements quality processes such as ISO90001 and CMMI.
Providing a flexible yet controlled process that can be used to deliver solutions, Agile Project Management combines effective use of people’s knowledge together with techniques such as iterative development and modelling to achieve tight project delivery timescales. It offers flexibility while still recognising the processes that give project managers confidence to run their projects effectively.
Agile Project Management comprises established and proven components that provide a holistic approach to the management and governance of projects. It has an overarching philosophy and guiding principles, together with a lifecycle (or process) and a set of deliverables to be created and maintained as the project progresses from a controlled start through to completion. It provides clearly defined roles with specific responsibilities designed to bring together all stakeholders involved in the project.
A significant advantage of adopting Agile Project Management is that it is a process based on DSDM Atern, and over many years Atern has proven its ability to work alongside and complement PRINCE2. So for an organization which already uses PRINCE2, adopting Agile Project Management enables the continued use of PRINCE2 with Agile Project Management providing complementary, tried and tested Agile management processes. For an organization that may be new to Project Management and wanting to deliver Agile projects in a controlled way, Agile Project Management alone will provide sufficient guidance to allow for successful management and delivery. However, if the organization wants to further strengthen their Project Management, then adopting Agile Project Management alongside PRINCE2 provides options for the optimum way forward.
The Agile Project Management Foundation course aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be Agile.
Based on the proven fundamentals within DSDM Atern, the Agile certification provides the ability to deliver Agile Projects in organizations requiring standards, rigour and visibility around Project Management, while at the same time enabling the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile.
