PMI-ACP Certification Boot Camp

Download PDFThe current IT market imposes fast-paced innovation and the need for cost efficiency, which is difficult to achieve with traditional methods of software development. Hence the evolution of agile frameworks. By applying these new agile methods, companies can significantly increase productivity and reduce the costs associated and with poor management of requirements and expectations of customers.
