Agile Certified Practitioner Certification PMI-ACP is a fastest catching up Agile Certification advocated by PMI. This is said to be a one-in-all Agile Certification that encompasses the overall umbrella of Agile practices knowledge and understanding for all the roles in Project Management. As agile is also a set of methodologies, frameworks and practices, the PMI-ACP® certification tests you on the multiple aspects and does not restrict to any particular methodology (like Scrum, Kanban, XP, etc.) or role (like Product Owner, Agile Coach, Scrum Master, etc.) Once you are a certified PMI-ACP®, it means that you are in a different league of agile practitioners.
PMI-ACP certification was created by agilists for agilists. Organizations that are highly agile and responsive to market dynamics complete more of their projects successfully than their slower-moving counterparts. The PMI-ACP spans many approaches to agile such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, extreme programming (XP) and test-driven development (TDD). So it will increase your versatility, wherever your projects may take you.
