What is Agile Programme Management?

Developed by the Agile Business Consortium, the Agile Programme Management certification provides the ability to deliver Agile Programmes in organisations requiring standards, rigour and visibility around Programme Management, while at the same time enabling the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile.

The AgilePgM Handbook

Agile’s influence on project, programme and change management continues to rise at pace. The practice of programme management supports organisations through significant transformation and change. AgilePgM training and certification is based on the Agile Programme Management (AgilePgM) Handbook, published by the Agile Business Consortium.

The guidance provides programme managers (and others involved with major business change initiatives) with a disciplined but flexible approach to the management of transformational organisational change, allowing for the iterative and incremental delivery of outputs and benefits.

AgilePgM does not attempt to redefine the fundamentals of programme management, and assumes some knowledge of a programme management method. It builds on knowledge to show how those involved in programmes of work may need to think, act and react differently in an agile environment.

Agile is a mindset, that is defined by four core values: Individuals and interactions over processes and tools, Working software over comprehensive documentation, Customer collaboration over contract negotiation, and Responding to change over following a plan.”

AgilePgM guidance includes the governance model, which ensures a programme will capture it’s vision, whilst empowering teams to work without undue interference. Built on firm foundations, the programme can evolve and react to business change in our increasingly dynamic world.
