Agile Programme Management Certification

What is it?

Agile Programme Management focuses on applying Agile principles to programmes, and on management of programmes where some or all of the projects within the programme are themselves being delivered in an Agile way.

Agile Programme Management provides a robust programme methodology that can be used standalone or in conjunction with existing programme management methodologies such as MSP®* to prioritise and realise benefits that most contribute to any organisation’s evolving strategy.
