What is the PMI-ACP®?
The Agile Manifesto was written in February of 2001 by a group of independent-minded software practitioners. Since that time, Agile project management approaches have rapidly gained traction in organizations of all sizes, and have moved from the software domain to many other application areas. The PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® certification from the Project Management Institute (PMI)® signifies that you have an understanding of Agile approaches and underlying principles.
The PMI-ACP® is PMI’s fastest growing certification. Surveys have shown that organizations that are highly agile complete more of their projects successfully than organizations that use more traditional approaches.
Who Should Apply?
If you are managing projects or working on project teams using either a traditional or an Agile project management approach, or you already have a PMP certification and would like to learn more about this change-driven project management methodology, then the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® certification is right for you.
What are the Prerequisites for this Certification?
To be approved to sit for the PMI-ACP exam, PMI requires professional experience in general project management methodologies, as well as experience working specifically in an Agile project management environment. There is also a formal education requirement.
