Being agile and knowing agile methodologies are crucial for every project manager. Agile project management is a major part of the Project Management Professional® certification exam. Although there is more than just knowing agile frameworks, you must also hold the agile mindset. Per the 2020 Examination Content Outline, approximately 50% of the PMP® Exam is agile focused. This course assists you in understanding that balance of project management approaches and more importantly what you need to prepare for as a PMP® candidate. Managing projects in an agile way has similarities to traditional plan driven techniques, but there are substantial differences you must comprehend and be able to practice to be successful on the PMP® Exam.
