PMI- Agile Certified Practitioner (ACP)®

original price:  $400

Agile Certified Practitioner (ACP) is a professional certification from Project Management Institute (PMI). Agile certification enforces change in mindset for managing projects in a dynamic environment. It is different to the classic waterfall  project management methodology where scope, plan and cost is frozen in the beginning and any changes would be extremely difficult in the later stages of the project. Agile embraces change and has iteration based delivery model which allows users to have quicker outputs to align expectations. PMOBytes along with 360PMO (PMI REP) offers the below Virtual training course for professionals pursuing towards being Agile:
