Contents of the Course

This course is equivalent to a 3-day course. Theoretically, you can finish it in about 3 days or less, but we recommend you take it slowly, to optimize your learning process.

The course is designed for busy professionals; the lessons are usually 10 to 15 minutes long, so that you can take one or two per day, without too much effort. We've also avoided homework and covered it in other ways, because you probably don't have enough time and mental energy to spend many hours by yourself doing homework.

The course is delivered in the following 3 iterations. Each iteration explains the method from a new perspective, and in more detail.

The first 30% of the course is free, and you can start learning right now: start lesson 1

What is AgilePM Foundation?

AgilePM is a certification program based on the DSDM® methodology, which is one of the first-generation Agile methods, from the same era as XP (eXtreme Programming), Crystal, and Scrum.

It's main difference with Scrum is that it was originally designed for larger projects, and had many considerations for management layers, in contrast to Scrum which was originally for one small team. This is why there's room to talk about Agile Project Management in the DSDM methodology.

Foundation is the first level of certification for AgilePM, where you learn the methodology and understand how an Agile project can be managed in this approach.


eLearning Course vs. Classroom Course

Once upon a time, eLearning courses were the inferior choice. This is not the case anymore, and well-formed, quality eLearning courses are better than classroom courses. How come?

Take us, as trainers. Can you imagine how difficult it is to deliver a quality course for 8 hours a day? You get tired, and it impacts the course. Sometimes, the trainer may not be in a good mood, have a personal problem, etc. And who pays for that? The learner. In preparing an eLearning course, in contrast, we spend three to six months, perfecting the course until it's just the way we want it. If we're tired, we just stop working and continue the next day; and if we're not satisfied with a lesson, we record it again, and again, and again!


Now think about yourself. Isn't it difficult to tolerate those hard chairs for 8 hours a day, trying to understand intense topics? Isn't it better to be able to take the course at your own pace, for example, half an hour per day? Isn't it great to be able to go back and take a certain lesson again if needed? And lastly, you don't have to risk your time and money taking a course with a trainer who you don't know.

Why Management Plaza?

There are many eLearning providers, and you might be wondering which one is the best choice for you. In fact, it's a simple decision: all you have to do is to watch demos of the courses and compare them :) Just be careful with one thing: there are some providers who create one or a few interesting videos as samples, while the rest of the course doesn't have anything to do with that.

We are a small group of project experts who love creating content and sharing what we have learned with our peers. While this is currently our main job, earning money is not our highest priority; the highest priority is the sense of achievement we get from creating something that can really help people.

We're honored to have played a role in the professional development of 62,349 learners in the past 8 years, from thousands of organizations, including...
