Agile development methods, such as Scrum, eXtreme Programming (XP) and Lean, have proven to deliver huge productivity and quality gains, and as such, are experiencing broad market acceptance. Gartner predicts that by the end of 2012, Agile development methods will be used in 80% of all software projects. Research conducted by the Project Management Institute (PMI) supports this assertion, showing that the use of Agile has tripled from December 2008 to May 2011. Companies are increasingly seeking project managers with Agile experience to organize and facilitate their Agile teams. To respond to this market demand, the PMI has instituted a new certification called the "Agile Certified Practitioner (ACP)"
CollabNet, a PMI Registered Education Provider (REP) and the world’s leading provider of Certified Scrum training, is now providing a three-day workshop to teach participants the fundamentals of Agile and prepare them for the PMI-ACP exam. Both the Certified Scrum Master and the PMI-ACP are important certifications in the industry. This workshop will prepare you for both.
