The PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® formally recognizes knowledge of agile principles and skill with agile techniques as of March 2018.
The PMI-ACP® is Project Management Institutes fastest growing certification, and it’s no wonder. Organizations that are highly agile and responsive to market dynamics 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.
The PMI-ACP spans many approaches to agile such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, extreme programming (XP) and test-driven development (TDD.) It increases versatility, for wherever projects may take you.
