Course Overview:

 

The primary aim of this course is to provide project managers wishing to write the PMI ACP® exam with a structured preparation forum and a mutual network of support from ProjectLink.

The PMI ACP® is PMI’s fastest growing certification. Organizations that are highly agile and responsive to market dynamics complete more of their projects successfully than their slower-moving counterparts — 75 percent versus 56 percent — as shown in PMI’s 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,) as to increase a person’s versatility, wherever projects may take them.
