The APMG AgilePMĀ® V2 Interactive Mind Map

The Agile Project Management v2 (AgilePMĀ® V2) study guide mind map outlines the AgilePMĀ® V2 framework, focusing on its key components and relationships. It includes sections on: The mind map highlights the framework’s key components, principles, and processes. It includes the core principles of AgilePMĀ®Ā V2, such as focusing on delivering business value early and continuously, embracing change, and maintaining collaboration between business and technical teams. The mind map also outlines the project lifecycle stages, roles and responsibilities, and key practices like iterative development, timeboxing, and MoSCoW prioritization. Additionally, it emphasizes the importance of governance, quality, and risk management within Agile projects.

The APMG AgilePMĀ® Syllabus

The document was created with training companies in mind, so-called Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs). It provides information on the scope of the AgilePMĀ® exams, thereby allowing for the design of training and training materials following the requirements of APMG so that the training and materials fully prepare candidates for Foundation and Practitioner exams.

Why should I read the APMG AgilePMĀ® Syllabus?

So what value does this provide for you? By reading the teaching syllabus, you will learn about the scope of the AgilePMĀ® exam questions for AgilePMĀ® Foundation and AgilePMĀ® Practitioner exams, and thus, which topics (and to what extent) from the official AgilePMĀ® Handbook are covered in the exams, and which are not. For example, not everyone knows that the Foundation exam does NOT cover the entire textbook.

The AgilePMĀ® V2 Handbook revisions over the years

As a side note, it’s worth knowing that AgilePMĀ® version 2.0 was introduced just before the DSDM Consortium rebranded itself to the Agile Business Consortium. Why does it matter?

Well, it just so happens that due to the rebranding, there are three handbook revisions (with different covers) of the AgilePMĀ® 2.0 methodology. Each of them is the same, so if you grab any of them for learning, it’s okay. (eBay is your friend)

The DSDMĀ® Project Approach Questionnaire (PAQ)

Classical DSDM PAQ with several additions. It is still a part of the method, and 20 years ago it was considered a valuable addition to the whole Agile world, so here it is. It’s a bit sad that over the past 30 years, the DSDM Consortium (now Agile Business Consortium) has not developed the PAQ into a full-fledged online tool for risk management in agile projects, such as AgilityHealthRadar.

The intended audience for the PAQ is Project Managers, but in my opinion, the audience consists of experienced change managers, Agile Coaches, and anyone involved in change/transformation management-related activities. The use of PAQ should not be performed by inexperienced individuals. Practice is needed to properly assess culture, project maturity, and the products themselves (and everything in between). If you have designed Agile project management principles (not just one project, but the “rules of the game” across the entire organization from the PMO) in both a traditional, “hierarchical” organization and in a healthy, evolving Agile culture – then you know what I mean. With such a background of experience, you know how to interpret the questions posed in the PAQ correctly and how deep each of them can be. Unfortunately, a significant portion of accredited AgilePMĀ® trainers do not have this experience because APMG does not require any practical experience in conducting agile transformations in the accreditation process. Only theoretical knowledge of the methodology is assessed.

AgilePMĀ® V1.2 Reference Card

A reference card based on the DSDMĀ® Atern V2 & AgilePMĀ® 1.0 – 1.2 (in short DSDMĀ® was rebranded as AgilePMĀ®). The reference card presents a matrix of project phases, products (also known as management products or artefacts), roles, and their respective responsibilities as defined by the AgilePMĀ® regarding who, when, and what regarding specific management products.

Woho! šŸ˜± This AgilePMĀ® Reference Card looks scary!

Do not treat this overview as a dogmatic approach, but rather as an inspiration.Ā  However, based on my experience, if you deal with projects in regulated environments with audits and governance or risk control activities highly embedded within the organization’s culture, this overview was a good starting point for me to show scepticists, that some Agile methodologies have governance within.

AgilePMĀ® V2 Reference Card

Same as the previous one, just for the AgilePMĀ® 2.0 (current version). The reference card appears to be a little bit more compact because the authors of the AgilePMĀ® V2 method decided to make things, let’s say, more approachable for newcomers. The concept is the same as in the previous Reference Card: project phases, products, roles, and their respective responsibilities as defined in the Handbook with information on who, when, and what is being done regarding specific management products.

Woho! šŸ˜± This AgilePMĀ® Reference Card looks scary!

Once again, do not treat this overview as a dogmatic directive from AgilePMĀ® authors, but rather as “food for thought.” However, based on my experience, this overview was a good starting point for coaching and mentoring activities that I had with some PMs and Heads of PMOs during the Agile Transformation in some banks.

AgilePMĀ® V2 Project Health Check Questionnaire (PHCQ)

The Project Health Check Questionnaire (PHCQ) was a tool that my team and I used (probably 10-15 years ago) during auditing or controlling activities for DSDMĀ® / AgilePMĀ® projects, where some clients (mainly PMO office heads) needed to understand the audit process for agile projects to be able to do it independently, building new guidelines within the organization.

More modern alternatives to AgilePMĀ® PAQ

Nowadays, we have many much better online, interactive, collaborative tools that do what PAQ is supposed to do, but much more effectively. They are faster, better, and designed with teamwork and reporting dashboards in mind. The most recognizable one that I can recommend based on my experience is AgilityHealthRadar. On a smaller scale, customized tools like retrospectives also do the job right (see list of Agile Tools and Software).

Quality is a habit (Aristotle)

A habit backed by 20 years as a trainer and 15 years as an Enterprise Agile Transformation Leader

"Some exam simulators for Agile exams, those lacking explanations to questions and answers, one could say that they intriguingly test our intellect šŸ˜Ž, originally interpreting the principle: "No Feedback, No Learning". Agile is based largely on feedback. Here is the irony, some simulators, both free and paid, do not provide any feedback whatsoever.
Agile at its best.ā€

Paulo CoelhoWhen he was preparing for the AgilePMĀ® exam

It’s been over 20 years in IT. I have more than 200 certifications in IT, InfoSec, management, coaching, mentoring, and training, and this, and that and blah blah blah… who cares? What matters is a practical, hands-on experience… In my case, it’s been 15 years of active engagement in Agile Transformations, Agile Leadership and Governance, as well on the theory side, more than 10 years as an Accredited AgilePMĀ® trainer.

Additionally, in the case of the DSDMĀ® area, I was privileged to receive the first in Poland DSDM-Agile Trainer-Coach distinction. It was a unique, verbal exam based on my real-life case study of implementing DSDMĀ®. The whole experience was done before the DSDM Consortium commission and AgilePMĀ® authors; in my case, it was Steve Messenger and Andrew Craddock). We (me and my trusty team) were nominated to the 2016 Agile Awards. we were one of the finalists.

Anyway, I’m trying to say that I’ve invested more than 15 years of my professional and private time in this ‘Agile stuff.’ It’s time to give something back to the community. Many great people have helped me along the way, and I want to contribute to the community. I believe that none of it matters if you donā€™t share and help others.

Don't be fooled by AgilePMĀ® exam dumps

I hope you will find my exam simulator valuable on your journey. The simulator is not just a tool to help you pass your upcoming AgilePMĀ® Foundation exam, but also to learn and understand the knowledge areas associated with the specific domain you are studying. Passing an exam shouldn’t be the ultimate goal in itself but rather a checkpoint in your never-ending self-development journey. The goal of the AgilePMĀ®Ā Exam Simulator is to provide you with as much learning feedback as possible, so you won’t waste your time memorizing questionable AgilePMĀ® exam dumps or shady AgilePMĀ® question databases with no prior verification of correct answers and with no rationals to questions.

Donā€™t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Moreover, should you encounter any issues, bugs, or typos in the exam, your assistance in enhancing the simulator would be greatly appreciated. Please utilize the pink icon during the exam (under the navigation buttons) to submit any problematic questions for review.

Agnostic Agile logo

I Belive in Agnostic Agile

Being “agile agnostic” refers to an approach to Agile methodologies that is not tied to a specific framework or set of practices (yet being fluent in most if not all of them). Instead, it emphasizes the core principles and values of Agile as outlined in the Agile Manifesto, applying them in a flexible and context-sensitive manner.
