Structured project management is rapidly becoming a top priority for businesses. Unfortunately, many methods and frameworks overemphasise recordkeeping and documentation or lack proper governance. Agile Project Management allows businesses to transparently deliver projects to high standards at a fast pace while flexibly adapting to change and empowering stakeholders. It is perfectly compatible with other corporate processes, such as PRINCE2®, which eliminates the need for extensive restructuring. At the end of the Agile Project Management® Course, you have the opportunity to earn your Foundation Level Certificate and future-proof your business to manage change with agility.

Yes. The training covers the whole topic and is a good preparation for the certification exam. Also Steven’s field experience makes that he can transpose any question to any professional situation or delivery.

Anyone who often takes the role of Project Manager or Project Sponsor should take this training, as well as all senior management. The Agile PM framework is a great framework for project management and Steven Deneir points out both the benefits and the major pitfalls. He also dares to make blunt statements sometimes, which trigger thinking more.
Real life practical examples on how to implement were given: that's where the real value lies.
Daniel Zerkowitz, Zaakvoerder, Dezine Services Zerkowit
Very concrete and to the point. There was also good interaction within the group which led to good practice-sharing which was very helpful. You get to know your role within your organisation and how to strenghten your own position, which is a unique strong point for this course. I feel I will perform much better now, thanks to the new insights I got from this training.
Ruth Bosmans, Marketeer, P&V Verzekeringen
The teacher is a great source of knowledge, has a lot of common sense and he is also passionate by what he does. He has put his theory in practice in many different contexts. All of this makes him a very good teacher. This trainging covered all the foundations of the method in 1 and a half day, which is already quite a performence. My lack of experience in PM prevented me to have loads of expectations, this was all new to me, and was very interesting.
