Making Project Management work for Pakistan – 98% Exam Success Rate (2003-2017)

Agile Certified Practitioner PMI ACP® Certification Training in Lahore is a hands-on program designed to equip participants with the concepts of Agile project management. This training will provide you knowledge of agile principles and skills with agile techniques. It will make you shine even brighter to your employers, stakeholders and peers.

The PMI-ACP® is fastest growing certification, and it’s no wonder. Organizations that are highly agile and responsive to market dynamics complete more of their projects successfully than their slower-moving counterparts — 75 percent versus 56 percent — as shown in PMI’s 2015 Pulse of the Profession® report.

The PMI-ACP training spans many approaches to agile such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, extreme programming (XP) and test-driven development (TDD.) So it will increase your versatility, wherever your projects may take you.

If you work on agile teams or if your organization is adopting agile practices, the PMI-ACP is a good choice for you. Compared with other agile certifications based solely on training and exams, the PMI-ACP is evidence of your real-world, hands-on experience and skill. PMI Lahore is the oldest, largest and best institute for ACP training in Pakistan.

In this Training, participants will also go through PMI ACP® exams in order to consolidate their knowledge. The simulation exams will enable the participants to do their own gap analysis to see how they should focus on their PMI ACP® exam preparation in order to be successful.
