As stated on the PMI website, the use of Agile as an approach to managing projects has been increasing dramatically over the last several years. Gartner predicts that by the end of 2018, Agile development methods will be used on 80% of all software development projects. PMI’s research has shown that the use of Agile has tripled from December 2008 to May 2011. Furthermore, research demonstrates the value that Agile can have in decreasing product defects, improving team productivity, and increasing delivery of business value. The PMI- ACP® is positioned to recognise and validate knowledge of this important approach.
