What is Agile?

Agile is an iterative approach to project management. It enables you to break a project into time-divided sections and react promptly to change. Agile is used for projects with end results that are difficult to define, or where there is a high likelihood of changing requirements. Although Agile originated within the IT sector, there has been a rapid expansion into other industries in the last few years.

There are a number of subsets (forms) within Agile including Crystal, Extreme Programming and Test Driven Development. However, Scrum is by far the most widely used of all the forms of Agile.

Why Agile Master Certified (SAMCTM)?

The Agile Master Certified (SAMCTM) certificate is awarded by SCRUMstudy, a global accreditation body for Scrum and Agile certifications. SCRUMstudy certifications are recognised by companies worldwide including Apple, Bank of America, PepsiCo and IBM.

Professional Development is a SCRUMstudy Authorised Training Partner (A.T.P.).

Gaining an international certification in Agile will communicate to potential employers that you have a high level of skill and competency in Agile methodologies.

This certified programme is part of a suite of accredited Agile and Scrum courses. It can be taken as a standalone course, but many participants choose to combine it with our Scrum Master Certified (SMCTM) course.
