AgilePM® Syllabus

Official AgilePM® syllabus for Foundation and Practitioner exams

The document was created with training companies in mind, so-called Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs). It provides information on the scope of the AgilePM® 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.

Does reading the AgilePM® Syllabus make sense for you?

So what value does this provide for you? By reading the teaching syllabus, you will learn about the scope of the AgilePM® exam questions for AgilePM® Foundation and AgilePM® Practitioner exams, and thus, which topics (and to what extent) from the official AgilePM® 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.

Download the AgilePM® Exam Syllabus

AgilePM® Handbook

The main knowledge source for the AgilePM® exams

The official AgilePM® qualification/exams (Foundation and Practitioner) AND official, accredited AgilePM® courses are entirely based ONLY on the content covered in the publication below:

Author website

AgilePM® V2 Handbook revisions over the years

As a side note, it’s worth knowing that AgilePM┬« 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 AgilePM┬« 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)

AgilePM® PAQ

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 AgilePM┬« 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.

AgilePM V1.2 Reference Card

Project Phases vs Products vs Roles vs Responsibilities Matrix in AgilePM® V1.2

A reference card based on the DSDM┬« Atern V2 & AgilePM┬« 1.0 – 1.2 (in short DSDM┬« was rebranded as AgilePM┬«). 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 AgilePM┬« regarding who, when, and what regarding specific management products.

Woho! ­čś▒ This AgilePM┬« Reference Card looks scary!

Do not treat this overview as a dogmatic approach, but rather as an inspiration.┬á 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.

Download Reference Card for AgilePM® V1.2

AgilePM® V2 Reference Card

Project Phases vs Products vs Roles vs Responsibilities Matrix in AgilePM® V2

Same as the previous one, just for the AgilePM┬« 2.0 (current version). The reference card appears to be a little bit more compact because the authors of the AgilePM┬« 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! ­čś▒ This AgilePM┬« Reference Card looks scary!

Once again, do not treat this overview as a dogmatic directive from AgilePM┬« 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.

Download Reference Card for AgilePM® V2

AgilePM® V2 PHCQ

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 DSDM® / AgilePM® 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 AgilePM® 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 test our intellect in an intriguing way ­čśÄ, 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.ÔÇŁ

Paulo CoelhoWhen he was preparing for the AgilePM® 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 AgilePM trainer. Additionally, in the case of the DSDM 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 DSDM. The whole experience was done before the DSDM Consortium commission and AgilePM 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 needed in my private time in this “Agile stuff”. And it’s time to give something back to the community. Since just as many great people helped me along the way, I want to contribute to the community, because the truth is that none of it matters if you donÔÇÖt share and help others.

Don't be fooled by AgilePM® 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 AgilePM┬« 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 AgilePM┬«┬áExam Simulator is to provide you with as much learning feedback as possible, so you won’t waste your time memorizing questionable AgilePM┬« exam dumps or shady AgilePM┬« question databases with no prior verification of correct answers and with no rationals to questions.

DonÔÇÖt 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.
