About This Course
Agile project management methodology outlines the use of short work iterations and incremental development of products, made possible by focusing on business priorities and customer value. This path of courses covers the objectives for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® exam.
ACP is the Project Management Institute (PMI)® certification that “recognizes an individual’s expertise in using agile practices in their projects, while demonstrating their increased professional versatility through agile tools and techniques”.
Agile is a monotonous approach to deliver software in a cumulative manner from the start of the project rather than delivering the whole project at the end. Agile is majorly applied in project management. If the project is typical, then Agile Project management methodology is the finest methodology to follow. This methodology mainly aims to deliver the product to the customer in smaller sprints instead of delivering at a time. Henceforth, it will be easy for the customer to test the delivered module of the project and ensure that proper quality is maintained.
Agile Certified Practitioners earn more than their uncertified colleagues, often with annual salaries exceeding USD $100,000.
