Agile Programme Management

Project and programme management has been evolving over recent years with agile methods and practices becoming increasingly popular as organizations seek to respond faster and more effectively to ever increasing demands.

The uptake of agile project management has been increasing, leading to many successful cross organisational implementations. But until now there has not been any agile guidance for programme management and larger scale change initiatives. So welcome to Agile Programme Management (AgilePgM®). This new guidance, training and certification is the result of a partnership between APMG International and the Agile DSDM Consortium, and effectively addresses how you should manage programmes, and the projects within them, with an agile mind-set.


Agile Programme Management provides a disciplined yet flexible agile approach to the management of organisational transformation. It allows for the incremental and iterative delivery of capabilities and benefits whilst empowering teams to work without undue interference. Built on a firm Vision, the programme is allowed to evolve and react to business change in an increasingly dynamic world.

Agile Programme Management provides a flexible programme management framework that can easily complement existing programme management methods or be used to develop your programme approach from scratch. The Snap Tech AgilePgM training will:

  • Assist with laying the foundation for successful agile programme management.
  • Show you how to run agile and non-agile projects together
  • Explain how an agile programme can be planned and managed
  • Help you to integration with your existing programme management.
  • Clarify the different roles needed for successful agile programme management, compared to ‘traditional’ roles.


The 2 day event is delivered by an experienced, accredited trainer who will facilitate interactive group work and encourage the learning experience through the use of multiple training mediums, group work and exercises.


The Foundation exam tests the candidate’s knowledge and understanding of the Agile Programme Management guidance.
