An organization’s strategic initiatives are implemented through projects and programs that drive change, enhance competitive advantage and fuel growth. Thus, it is imperative that companies take a holistic approach to project management and select the project management method that best suits the needs of a given project.
The first step towards building an agile organization is to create the team that will be guiding the projects which carry out a company’s strategic vision. Practitioners with solid skills in project management, including capabilities in implementing agile practices successfully, should form the core of that team. Although agile has its roots in software and IT, agile adoption is growing and expanding in a wide range of industries.
As more and more organizations incorporate agile approaches into their project and programme management activities, there will be an ever-increasing need for experienced practitioners who can apply the techniques to turn those aspirations into actions. The PMI-ACP credential is purpose built to fulfill the need for qualified professionals.
