PMI-ACP Examination Preparation
Created by agilists for agilists, the PMI-ACP is PMI’s fastest growing certification, and it’s no wonder. Organizations that are highly agile and responsive to market dynamics and complete more of their projects successfully than their slower-moving counterparts—75 percent versus 56 percent—as shown in our 2015 Pulse of the Profession® report.
Why should I take this training? Is it good for me?
The PMI-ACP formally recognizes your knowledge of agile principles and your skill with agile techniques. If you’re experienced using agile approaches, have good collaboration skills, eagerly embrace complexity and thrive on rapid response times, then your talents are in demand.
If your organization is adopting agile practices or you work on agile teams, the PMI-ACP is a good option for you to pursue. Compared with other agile certifications based solely on training and exams, the PMI-ACP is evidence of your real-world, hands-on experience and skill.
The PMI-ACP spans many approaches to agile such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, extreme programming (XP) and test-driven development (TDD.) So, it will increase your versatility, wherever your projects may take you.
The training covers the Domains—Agile Principles & Mindset, Value Driven Delivery, Stakeholder Engagement, Team Performance, Adaptive Planning, Problem Detection & Resolution, Continuous Improvement—that will appear on the exam.
