Agile is a well-known term to project management and development practitioners, and is gaining significant ground in the workplace as a methodology to design, build, and deliver software — and increasingly, projects of many other kinds as well — on time, under budget, and to meet specific requirements for content and quality.
The Project Management Institute (PMI) sponsoring organization for the well-known Project Management Professional (PMP) certification , is in the process of launching an add-on PMI Agile Certification to help project management professionals learn about, employ, and make maximum use of Agile practices in their project planning and execution activities. The exam content outline for this certification should be available some time this month (April 2011) and applications for the credential will be accepted starting in May. The exam will become available some time in Q3 2011, and in Q4 2011 the first PMI Agile Certifications will be awarded to successful pilot candidates.
