Victoria, BC (PRWEB) September 26, 2009
TechnoBrands Incorporated is pleased to announce its support for the new industry-standard AIPMM (Association of International Product Management & Marketing) Agile Certified Product Manager® (ACPM) exam standard.
The exam, offered by AIPMM, tests for a thorough understanding of basic and advanced strategic and tactical concepts in agile product management. It ensures that those who pass the exam fully understand agile product management and are able to apply the concepts immediately to be more effective in their jobs. Topics covered in the exam range from basic to advanced and include multiple types of agile development (Scrum, XP, Lean), release management & planning, documentation, organizing around agile, launches, roadmapping, distributed/larger teams and integrating agile within a traditional product process.
"This is an exciting opportunity for product managers, particularly in the software development arena." says John Hawkins, owner of TechnoBrands. "There has been a lot of buzz about agile and some uncertainty about what the product managers' role ought to be. This certification establishes a firm foundation for the product manager in the context of an agile development environment."
TechnoBrands has partnered with 280 Group to support the new standard from AIPMM, of Carson City, Nevada, along with Lucrum Marketing of Austin, TX, Brainmates of Australia and PLM Associates of Los Angeles, CA. TechnoBrands will be delivering the materials for this new certification training through in-person and online channels to the Canadian technology sector.
