AgilePM ® Foundation
(course code APJF3)


This course covers the newly launched certification by APMG and the DSDM Consortium that has been created to provide an agile approach to project management.

The course is equally divided between the theory of the new wave of agile project management and the practical experience of the techniques and disciplines involved.

This course provides each participant with a solid Foundation in AgilePM concepts.

Course Objectives

The Foundation Course will enable delegates to understand:

  • The underpinning philosophy and principles of Agile;
  • The lifecycle of an Agile project, including alternative configurations;
  • The products produced during an Agile project and the purpose of these;
  • The techniques used and their benefits and limitations;
  • The roles and responsibilities within an Agile project.

Delegates will be fully prepared for the Foundation exam.

Who Should Attend

The course is aimed at Project Managers who are either adding to their knowledge of traditional approaches such as PRINCE2 or who are operating in an agile environment and need to be able to run projects in more complex and scalable situations.


There are no prerequisites for the course, however some exposure to project management would be useful.
