Course Description

Project and programme management has been evolving over recent years with agile methods and practices becoming increasingly popular as organizations seek to respond faster and more effectively to ever increasing demands.

The uptake of agile project management has been increasing, leading to many successful cross organisational implementations. But until now there has not been any agile guidance for programme management and larger scale change initiatives. So welcome to Agile Programme Management (AgilePgM®). This new guidance, training and certification is the result of a partnership between APMG International and the Agile DSDM Consortium, and effectively addresses how you should manage programmes, and the projects within them, with an agile mind-set.


Organisations will:

  • Have a standard approach to executing agile programmes, incorporating both agile and non-agile projects and activities.
  • Deliver transformational change faster, at a lower cost and with lower risk by continuous realization of benefits and validation of programme goals against business strategy
  • Have an approach that complements and works with existing corporate methodologies as well as quality and audit processes.
  • Build a track record of successful programme outcomes in a corporate environment.
  • Easily adopt a tried and tested approach rather than developing and integrating a company-specific agile programme management model.
  • Achieve better communication and control over programmes and just in time planning without disrupting the programme budget, timescale and vision.
  • Develop professionalism in employees and include agile certification in employee professional development schemes.
