Agile Versus Scrum

PMI-ACP® Certification is setting a new standard for Agile Certifications based on research, feedback on best practices, methods and roles. With just 1,500 hours on an Agile Team within the last 3 years and 2,000 hours of project management over the past 5 years, you can prepare and sit for the PMI-ACP® Certification after 21 hours of training.

Agile & Software Development: Most software development projects are managed using Agile methodologies for their projects.

Agile Vs. Scrum: There are at 10 methodologies for Agile. Scrum is just one of them.

PMI-ACP Certification Versus Scrum Certification: The Agile PM can have various titles including scrum master, APM (Agile Project Manager), etc. PMI-ACP certified PMs have a certification that validates their experience and knowledge of 100 multiple choice questions. Scrum master certification (CSM) only provides a certificate that you passed the exam of just 35 questions. Not much credibility because of the number of questions, and less credibility if experience is lacking. However, the dynamics are changing. What we are findig is people without experience acquire their CSM. Then once they have the experience for exam approval, then they take the PMI-ACP Certification training and exam.
