Course Conductor, a global training research and advisory firm, has recently published the first independent AgilePM Trusted Training Radar™ Report, revealing organizations achieve 90 per cent of their target training outcomes when they invest in AgilePM (Agile Project Management) training.
Those outcomes include improved organizational agility, reduced costs from optimized project delivery processes, increased certifications, increased agile skills and knowledge, and enhanced team morale.
The report is based entirely on unbiased opinions received directly from 41 organizations that have used AgilePM to train 4,484 employees, as well as 3,310 verified learner reviews published on CourseConductor.com.
Developed by APMG in partnership with the Agile Business Consortium, more than 100,000 AgilePM exams have now been completed worldwide.
John Williams, CEO of the Agile Business Consortium, said: “We were already confident that AgilePM is the most popular agile project management qualification in the world – and now this Trusted Training Radar Report independently demonstrates that it is highly effective in fulfilling the objectives of the organisations and learners who use it.
“Organisations that contributed to the Trusted Training Radar™ Report said that investing in AgilePM training increased organisational agility, reduced costs, optimised project delivery processes and increased the skills and knowledge of their teams.”
Based on the feedback received from organizations and learners, Course Conductor’s proprietary algorithm applies a robust investment methodology to AgilePM training vendors; and calculates scores for ‘Confidence to deliver training outcomes’ and ‘Learner Satisfaction’. The scores are used to verify providers as Leaders, High Performers and Contenders.
The Trusted Training Radar Report for AgilePM will be updated every six months so organizations can access the latest performance insights about the AgilePM course, and the training vendors that meet the Trusted Training Radar inclusion criteria.
Craig Kilford, CEO of Course Conductor, said: “Yesterday’s organisations wanted to know the costs of training their people; today’s fast-moving organizations demand to understand the value, and as such want evidence to give them confidence that investing in specific training courses will contribute to the success of their transformation strategies.
“By removing the marketing noise and placing the customer voice at the heart of the training investment conversation, I’m proud that Course Conductor’s independent peer insights enable organizations to make more informed and efficient training vendor and course selections.
“I believe the results of the AgilePM Trusted Training Radar Report not only set a positive benchmark for the Agile Business Consortium and the training vendors, but also for other training courses in the industry.”
AgilePM training courses can only be delivered by APMG Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs), with exams independently marked by APMG. Details of AgilePM training and certification and all ATOs are available here.
APMG CEO, Richard Pharro, added: “The report states that 91% of AgilePM learners say their certification training will have a high or very high impact on their ability to do their job better.
“Professional certification is important to both businesses and individuals. It inspires a learner with the confidence that they have the knowledge and skills to implement agile project management which can directly improve business performance.”
