Training is an important of learning and SkillSprint is changing the way training is delivered. SkillSprint is a simulation development framework and makes it easy to create simulations with their KwikSim framework. #ACI in collaboration with SkillSprint® brings you a three hour Agile training based on a simulated environment where you employ the techniques of discovery learning and games to learn the principles of Agile methodology. This "Agile Training Simulator" is meant to familiarize participants with the concepts, methods and practical techniques of agile software development.


From the history of agile and the fundamentals of strategic planning, through story writing, execution and delivery, the simulator has been designed to take teams through the complete cycle of a typical agile development project.

Facilitated by experts with years of applied agile experience, the simulator will quickly get participants working in teams and practicing agile, through carefully constructed simulations and games that are designed to accelerate learning and reinforce understanding of the Why, How and What of agile development. Participants will leave the "Agile Training Simulator" with both the theoretical and practical knowledge required to begin immediately practicing agile development.

This will also qualify for you to apply for the AAP®, ASM® or APO® credential from ACI.

APIQ-06 - Enterprise Agile Certification for co-located project teams

Agile Process Improvement Quality - 06 is for small organizations to evaluate their continuous improvement and adaptability maturity levels throughout the organizations. APIQ-06 assesses the organizations which are collocated in a single location and offer Agile services to its stakeholders.

Project Managers have a great deal of responsibility – milestones to hit, customers counting on quality deliverables, and executives asking for fast, accurate information. As teams grow bigger, these responsibilities become more complex and difficult to manage. That’s why many organizations are ditching traditional waterfall approaches to project management in favour of Agile #ProjectManagement methodologies.
#Agileprojectmanagement is a value-driven approach that allows Project Managers to deliver high-priority, high-quality work–and look like rock stars to their stakeholders.
Software projects change constantly. When customers are expected to finalize requirements before they can test-drive the prototypes, overhead and long delays often cripple the project. Agile Project Management is about embracing change, even late in the development stage.
Agile project management provides numerous benefits to organizations, project teams, and products. Key benefits and how to maximize them:
·         Better product quality
·         Higher customer satisfaction
·         Higher team morale
·         Increased collaboration and ownership
·         Customized team structures
·         More relevant metrics
·         Improved performance visibility
·         Increased project control
·         Improved project predictability
·         Reduced risk

The ACI, (Agile Certification Institute) credential recognizes your knowledge of #scrummethodologies, enterprise tools, techniques, transforming the business requirements into working software and ensuring the productivity of the team. It is the ideal certification to test the candidate’s ability to apply the skills and knowledge necessary in the agile environment.
