Agile is a topic of growing importance in project management. Research from the Project Management Institute (PMI®) shows that a significant number of project management practitioners are embracing adaptive principles and practices for managing projects.
Additionally, PMI members, credential holders, and Agile practitioners are looking to PMI for certification, recognition, and educational opportunities. In response to this level of interest and demand, PMI has introduced the Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP®) certification.
