The AgilePM® certification helps to support people that need to work in an agile environment. The AgilePM guidance was developed by APMG in partnership with the DSDM Consortium. DSDM offers a practical methodology that provides a balance between the standards, rigour and visibility required for good project management, pace, change and empowerment of all project members.
The focus of agile project management is on developing solutions incrementally (bit by bit) which enables project teams to react to changing requirements, encouraging increased collaboration and better ownership with all project members.

DSDM Handbook vs AgilePM Handbook
The AgilePM Handbook (Agile Project Management Handbook) contains a subset (90%) of the DSDM Agile Project Framework handbook so these books are basically the same. It is focused on the management and delivery of agile projects and is written from a Project Managers point of view so it easier to understand. Some project managers also read the original DSDM Handbook as it provides an in-depth guide and we suggest to this this if you are going to work in a company that is going to use AgilePM. The AgilePM Handbook is intended to be used to prepare for the APMG AgilePM exams which are AgilePM Foundational and AgilePM Practitioner. You can visit the website www.agilebusiness.org for more information on DSDM. You can see links to other guidebooks, case studies and white papers.
