COMAT Training Services


Course introduction

This course is aimed at people who work in Agile teams and want to obtain the PMI-ACP® certification. The objective of this 3-day course is to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to pass the PMI-ACP® examination, and to successfully apply Agile practices in their organization. Candidates will learn more than the basics of Agile during this course. Candidates will also understand the underlying principles and specific techniques needed to help your team achieve project success. The Agile methodology is more adaptive, people-oriented and focuses on constant input and cyclical change, which opens the door for continuous improvement during the project. This, as opposed to the more process-oriented, sequential, predictive structure of traditional project management as defined by the PMBOK® Guide.
