KIM Consulting Group’s Agile Project Management offers a practical and repeatable methodology, combining a process covering the whole Agile project lifecycle with a flexible approach. As the pace of change accelerates and pressure builds to deliver greater value, traditional project management methods that worked in more stable and predictable environments become less effective. The project management team needs to respond quickly whilst demonstrating control and reliability.
Our Agile PM certification is targeted at professionals who are involved in managing agile projects and programmes or are adopting an agile and lean approach in their organization. The Agile approach to project management can be applied to all types of projects regardless of scale or discipline.
