Why PMI-ACP (Agile Certified Practitioner)?
Agile has made its way into the mainstream and is no longer a grassroots movement. Today, more companies are adopting this approach over a traditional waterfall methodology, and more are about to make the transition.
To stay relevant in the competitive, changing world of project management, it’s important that project management professionals demonstrate true leadership ability on today’s software projects.
The Project Management Institute’s Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP©) certification clearly illustrates to colleagues, organizations and potential employers that you’re a leader. This class not only prepares you to lead your next Agile project effort, but ensures that you’re prepared to pass the PMI-ACP certification exam.
