Improve Your Management Skills by Agile Project Management Training

Agile Project Management Course in London

Calling all Project Managers, Programme Managers, Business Analysts and Change Management Professionals – start your Agile journey with me. Understanding Agile no longer sets you apart as ‘up to date’ – NOT knowing Agile clearly brands you someone who is out of touch with how projects and change initiatives are run today. I use my extensive experience of projects, programmes and transformational change initiatives to put Agile into a relevant, easy to understand context that takes account of many of my real-life experiences of creating Agile ways of working. To ensure you get the most out your precious time I have chunked up the AgilePM examination course into bite size chunks – you decide how long you spend getting qualified.

Why Choose Melanie?

The Story

Agile Project Management is also known as AgilePM and helps project managers and business leaders to deliver projects faster, cheaper and with more tangible benefits than using more traditional waterfall project management approaches.

Originating from the agile software community, Agile was designed to work directly with the business as well as IT.

The qualification “Agile Project Management Foundation and Practitioner” was launched in 2010 in cooperation with APMG and DSDM and Melanie Franklin is one of the leaders in training this examination based course.

Her 100% success rate comes from her being an Agile Expert as well as Scrum Master and practitioner in Lean Kanban.

Since the launch of the Change Management certificate in 2008, Melanie has trained thousands of professionals and coached over 100 organisations into adopting Change Management principles.
