Agile project management increases the flexibility in the implementation of projects and enables a more small-scale management of (large) projects. This is the ideal standard, especially for companies and organisations in fast-moving and innovative industries or with projects at different stages. The certification to PMI-ACP® promotes your recognition and career as a project manager.
This seminar prepares you for the exam and helps you to achieve the 21 hours of lessons (contact hours) required by PMI®.
