The PMI-ACP is PMI's fastest growing certification, and it's no wonder. 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.
