Why get your PMI-ACP certification?

Agile is the upcoming and current way of product and project delivery. According to PMI’s Pulse of the Profession 2018, 46% of surveyed organizations have used an Agile or hybrid Agile approach over the last 12 months. Knowing how to be Agile and proving your knowledge is critical to success in the future.

Agile is the recognized way to organize product delivery in the software development world. If you work with projects which use Agile principles, whether you use Scrum or another framework, having this certification gives you and your organization confidence in its Agile project and product delivery.

The Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) certification formalizes the recognition of the value of Agile delivery in the project management world. This certification is granted by the international Project Management Institute (PMI®).
