Course Objectives

AGILE CERTIFIED PRACTITIONER – ACP COURSE OBJECTIVES

Synopsis

A key challenge for organizations in today’s world is to succeed in balancing two parallel, competing imperatives:

  • Maintain current business operations such as profitability, service quality, customer relationships, brand loyalty, productivity, market confidence etc. What we term “business as usual”
  • To transform business operations in order to survive and compete in the future-looking forward to survive and deciding how business change can be introduced to best effect for the organization.

As the pace of change (technology, business, social, regulatory etc.) accelerates, and the penalties of failing to adapt to change become more evident, the focus of management attention is inevitably moving to achieve a balance between business as usual and business change.

Projects are the means by which we introduce change.

And Project Management is the key to organization’s survival and success.
Research has shown that only approximately 30% of projects achieve their time, cost and specification goals. This statistic demonstrates an obvious need for various professionals to supplement their traditional technical skills with high-value business and project delivery skills.

Organizations now use project management as a tactical tool to execute projects. Projects are
essential to the growth and survival of organizations today. They create value in the form of improved business processes, are indispensable in the development of new products and services and make it easier for companies to respond to changes in the environment, competition and the marketplace.
