Maven expands course portfolioMaven ¦ 11 July 2011Maven today announces the release of new Agile Project Management coursesAs part of the commitment to maintaining its position as the leading Portfolio,Programme, Project, Risk and Change Management specialist, Maven is pleased toannounce the expansion of its course portfolio to include Agile Project Management.A new qualification has been created for project managers working in Agile projectenvironments. Agile Project Management is certified and accredited by the APMG andwas developed in partnership with the DSDM Consortium. The courses are based uponthe tried and tested principles of DSDM Atern and were developed to work alongsidemore traditional approaches such as PRINCE2®. These new training courses aim to bringmore structure and rigour to the quickly developing Agile market place that has nowreached a tipping point in that most organisations are adopting agile in some form oranother.These courses are offered in partnership with Keith Richards Consulting (KRC). Originallyconcentrating on the IT sector, KRC became specialists in ‘Agile’ approaches such asDSDM (Dynamic Systems Development Method) which became the de facto standardfor Rapid Application Development (RAD).“Agile is growing in importance as a core qualification requirement for many projectmanagement roles –and not just IT project management” says Melanie Franklin, CEO atMaven. “As a leading provider of project management learning, we simply must offerthe full portfolio to our clients and so we are delighted to have formed a partnership Aldermary House | 10-15 Queen Street | London EC4N 1TX Page 1

When correctly harnessed it can makethe difference between project success and project failure.The result of this was the realisation that most projects could run very successfully usingthe best of breed from each of these disciplines.KRC is one of the leading UK consultancies in the introduction and development of thehybrid method of running PRINCE2® and DSDM in tandem.
