Facilitator: Leslie Lowman, PMI-ACP®, CSM, CSP, CSPO, SA, CAL-I


Existing PMPs can earn 21 PDUs for attending the course
The PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® formally recognizes your knowledge of agile principles and your skill with agile techniques. It will make you shine even brighter to your employers, stakeholders and peers.  The PMI-ACP spans many approaches to agile such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, Extreme Programming (XP) and Test-driven Development (TDD.) So it will increase your versatility, wherever your projects may take you.  
This course will benefit anyone interested in agile project management methods. It also fulfills the 21 hour requirement for the PMI-ACP exam.  Our classes feature hands-on personal attention. We keep the class size small to enhance your learning experience. The instructors are eager to share their knowledge and help you learn. In addition we incorporate best practices for adult learners to maximize the impact of the material. Our instructor is top-notch in the field. 


Learing Objectives:

Domain I: Agile principles and mindset: Explore, embrace and apply agile principles and mindset within the context of the project team and organization.

Domain II: Value Drive Delivery: Deliver valuable results by producing high-value increments for review, early and often, based on stakeholders priorities. Have the stakeholders provide feedback on these increments, and use this feedback to prioritize and improve future increments.

Domain III. Stakeholder engagement: Engage current and future interested parties by building a trusting environment that aligns their needs and expectations and balances their requests with an understanding of the cost/effort involved. Promote participation and collaboration throughout the project lifecycle and provide the tools for effective and informed decision making.

Domain IV: Team Performance: Create an environment of trust, learning, collaboration, and conflict resolution that promotes team self-organization, enhances relationships among team members, and cultivates a culture of high performance.

Domain V: Adaptive planning: Produce and maintain an evolving plan, from initiation to closure, based on goals, values, risks, constraints, stakeholder feedback, and review findings.

Domain VI: Problem detection and resolution: Continuously identify problems, impediments, and risks; prioritize and resolve in a timely manner; monitor and communicate the problem resolution status; and implement process improvements to prevent them from ocurring again.

Domain VII: Continuous improvement: Continuously improve the quality, effectiveness, and value of the product, the process, and the team.
