Agile Project Management

The Agile Project Management (AgilePM) certification aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be agile.

Agile projects are characterised by highly self-empowered teams delivering products incrementally with a focus on early delivery of real benefits to the business. Unlike more traditional approaches, Agile projects fix time, cost and quality at the early phases of the project and manage contingency by developing a clear view of priorities in collaboration with the business. 

Based on the proven fundamentals within DSDM Atern, the AgilePM certification lives up to its name by providing users of the method with the core principles needed to facilitate a successful project, whilst allowing a degree of scope and agility that not many other methodologies provide.  This Agile Project Management (AgilePM) Foundation digital course has been fully accredited and will prepare you for the formal examination.

Benefits:

For the Individual:
  • Develop a more advanced, applied level of knowledge to gain an understanding of agile and the ability to apply relevant project management methods, leading to successful agile projects
  • Clarify different management styles needed for successful agile projects compared to traditional projects and be able to tailor these to the situation

  • Complements and works with existing corporate processes such as PRINCE2, quality and audit processes which improves rigour and visibility around project management, leading to a proven track record of successful delivery in a corporate environment
  • Simply adopt a tried and tested approach rather than developing and integrating a company-specific agile management process
  • Achieve better communication and control over projects and adapt project plans without disrupting the project budget, timescale and scope

    Management of Portfolios

    The Management of Portfolios (MoP) guidance provides advice and examples of how to apply principles, practices and techniques which help to optimise an organisations investment in change alongside its business as usual (BAU) work.

    The purpose of the foundation qualification is to confirm that a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding to work as an informed member of a portfolio office or in a range of portfolio management roles.  Investment is the key word because portfolio management is about investing in the right change initiatives and implementing them correctly. MoP achieves this by ensuring that:

    • The programmes and projects undertaken are prioritised in terms of their contribution to the organisations strategic objectives and overall level of risk
    • Programmes and projects are managed consistently to ensure efficient and effective delivery
    • Benefits realisation is maximised to provide the greatest return (in terms of strategic contribution and efficiency savings) from the investment made
    The accredited MoP Foundation course covers all of the foundation qualification syllabus topics of the MoP guidance. The course is equivalent to a three day in-class workshop.

    Target Audience:
    • Members of management boards and directors of change
    • Senior Responsible Owners (SROs)
    • Portfolio, Programme, Project, Business Change and Benefits Managers
    • Business Case Writers
    • Project Appraisers
    • Business Process Owners

    Management of Value Foundation Course

    Management of Value (MoV) provides a set of principles, processes and techniques to enable organizations and individuals to maximize the benefits from portfolios, programmes and projects. MoV supplements the main purposes of PRINCE2, MSP and M_o_R, but its focus is on maximizing value. The MoV Foundation digital course covers all aspects of the MoV guidance using voice-over, animation and activities.

    MoV provides essential guidance on the most efficient use of resources to maximize the benefits from portfolios, programmes and projects. MoV combines a set of principles, processes and techniques. 

    MoV proposes a definition of value that embraces both monetary and non-monetary benefits, and argues that the subjectivity of value increases the need for it to be actively managed. It provides a method, supported by techniques, for allocating scarce funds as effectively as possible. MoV has evolved from the practice of value management across many sectors, over many years. The guidance describes methods that are as relevant as ever, although their use is often overlooked or misapplied.

    The guidance is intended to help organizations and individuals use a successful, proven methodology to supplement their current management practices, so that they can increase the value they deliver and make better use of resources. 

    It is structured around four integrated concepts:

    • Principles: Factors that underpin MoV. The principles are based on tried-and-tested practices over the past fifty years and successful value management is unlikely to be achieved if these are not applied. However they are not prescriptive and organizations need to develop their own polices and processes to meet their specific requirements
    • Processes and Techniques: The methods and tools used in MoV application. The set of processes define the structure of the approach and use of specialist techniques to provide a practical approach to understanding value. 
    • Approach: How to apply MoV to portfolios, programmes and projects.
    • Environment: Responding to external and internal influences.
    What You Will Learn:
    The main body of the course consists of eleven sessions which covers MoV:
    • Principles
    • Processes
    • Techniques
    • Approach & Implementation
    • Environment
    • Embedding MoV
    • Guidance Appendices

    Target Audience:
    • Corporate Managers
    • Programme Managers
    • Project Managers
    • Operational Managers
    • All other personnel who have an interest or responsibility for the Management of Value within their organization.

    Managing Successful Programmes Foundation Course

    Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) is a methodology that comprises a set of principles and processes for use when managing a programme. A programme is made up of a specific set of projects identified by an organisation that together will deliver some defined objective or set of objectives, for the organisation. The objectives or goals of the programme are typically at a strategic level so that the organisation can achieve benefits and improvements in its business operation.

    Managing Successful Programmes represents proven Best Practice programme management and is a framework for successfully delivering large scale transformational change through a dossier of related projects and related activities to make the change stick.

    While not being prescriptive, it is very flexible and designed to be adapted to meet the needs of local circumstances. It provides an adaptable route to facilitating change and reaches its ultimate objectives by bringing together the key elements of governance themes, together with transformational flow processes, all underpinned by common sense principles to enable success.

    Benefits:

    Upon completion of the course, you will be a more effective member of a programme team, understanding how your role fits into the wider picture, and how you can help contribute more effectively to the realisation of strategically aligned benefits. By helping to correctly manage a programme your organisation can reduce the level of risk involved and protect your investment in change. The MSP guidance provides you with the framework to effectively manage transformational change, ensuring its governance themes and processes are applied appropriately to suit your organisations circumstances. The MSP Foundation course is fully accredited and prepares you for the Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) Foundation examination.

    What You Will Learn:
    On completion of this course candidates need to show that they understand the key principles and terminology within the MSP guidance. Specifically, successful candidates should be able to:
    • Distinguish between projects and programmes
    • Identify the MSP defined types of programme and their characteristics

    • Explain the purpose and areas of focus of the defined roles
    • Explain the purpose of the seven MSP principles, the nine governance themes and the six transformational flow processes
    • Explain the purpose of MSP programme information

    Target Audience:
    • Newly appointed Programme Managers who may have a background in managing projects but have not previously operated in a transformational change environment
    • Senior Managers who will sponsor the change, or perhaps be held accountable for its success
    • Operational Managers charged with embedding the change in their area
    • Operational staff undertaking a role in the programme or related projects
