is PMI-ACP worth?

Postby poonam.a07 Mon Apr 02, 2018 7:58 am

Hello,

I recently obtained my PMP certificate and as PMP is about traditional way of handing project, I would like to know how PMP-ACP would be helpful along with PMP. I have done Scrum Master certification in 2017 (CSM) . should I go for ACP cert and how this would be helpful in moving my career in agile.

Thanks
Poonam

PMI-ACP® certification is designed for those who are in or want to move into a leadership role and for those who have been implementing Agile Values and Principles in the day to day project work.

CSM is basic certificate, and PMI ACP gives you much more like:

- You can decide when agile is more relevant on broader project management context
- As a professional you have a role to play in establishing that mindset, ACP talk about it.
- Organizations are using multiple agile approach, Scrum is followed by Kanban and Lean, so as a professional you should also know Lean and Kanban well. ACP gives you a fair idea about it.
- ACP talk about many metrics useful for agile projects which are defined under governance structure

- ACP talks about tools and techniques are being used for problem solving and continuous improvement, so agile professionals should be aware of them.


It is very much relevant certificate in current time.

I am sorry for the delay in the response. Somehow I missed the message.
In general, people spend 150 hours of preparation time for PMI-ACP, again the existing knowledge of Agile will also help.

If you can invest 2 hours a day, you would be able to pass the exam in 2 months.
