Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) June 02, 2012
The Project Management Institute (PMI) reports that the use of agile methodology has increased dramatically in recent years. Some experts predict that by year’s end agile will be used on 80 percent of software development projects. That’s why the Project Management Professionals (PMPs) at Cheetah Learning (http://www.CheetahLearning.com) are offering an introductory presentation entitled “A Taste of Agile.”
The online event takes place Thursday, June 7, at Noon (EST), and will be hosted by Michelle LaBrosse, founder and CEO of Cheetah Learning. There is no charge to participate.
“During this 15-minute presentation, we will give you the information that you need to sign up for your free 2 PDU ‘A Taste of Agile’ course,” organizers said.
Following the June 7 presentation is a Q&A session featuring LaBrosse and Jean Steinmetz, Cheetah’s Chief Knowledge Officer, who recently took and passed the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) exam.
According to LaBrosse and Steinmetz, “Agile is a philosophy that uses organizational modules based on people, collaboration and shared values.”

“A Taste of Agile” is just one more example of how Cheetah Learning has helped professionals extend their proficiency skills. The company recently celebrated its 12th anniversary by releasing a video that explains how its innovative "Accelerated Learning” approach has helped potential project managers prepare for, and dramatically increase their pass rate of, the certification exam.

Prior to Cheetah’s “Accelerated Learning” method, participants typically studied for six months to prepare for the Certification Exam to get their Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. The fail rate at that time was 40 percent.
In 2001, Cheetah Learning introduced “Accelerated Learning.” The intense, yet entertaining, classes took just four days; the increase in the number of people who passed the Certification Exam was dramatic: An average of 98 percent.
