Agile Project And Delivery Management (ICP-APM)
The ICP-APM is one of two knowledge-based certifications on the Delivery Management track. This certification focuses on core components of agile project management as distinct from traditional project management, and on equipping course participants with strategies and techniques for successful Lean and Agile project implementation. A servant leadership mindset and approach is critical to empowering agile teams to produce great results. Students will practice the role of agile project manager as a facilitator of agile practices towards achieving desired outcomes. This certification also takes a much more in-depth look at the fundamental agile concepts of adaptive planning, customer collaboration, and value-driven delivery in dynamic and sometimes highly constrained environments. In addition, the learning outcomes address agile approaches to standard project management processes such as metrics, reporting, and contract management.
Typically, training providers will cover the required learning outcomes in approximately 14-21 hours of instructional activities over the course of two to three days.
Traditional Project Managers making the transition to agile environments, and agile team members interested in taking on servant leadership roles are the primary audience for this certification. Relevant roles include Project Managers, Scrum Masters, Business Analysts, Product Managers or other team members interested in Agile Project Management.
