    • Currently, there is a shortage of professionals who have a correct understanding of Agile and can implement the process in running projects. So, if professionals already understand Agile as developers or Project Managers, PMI-ACP is the perfect platform to showcase their skills
    • The Agile community is expanding, and the world is beginning to implement Agile methodology very fast and in a major way of executing projects in a dynamic environment.
    • PMI-ACP is one of the few certifications that crosses the boundaries of methodology and does not focus on a single method only, normally Scrum. On the other hand, Agile is an overarching framework, that is a grouping of different methods like Scrum, Lean, XP, Kanban, Chrystal Clear, and so on
    • Typically, companies have a tendency of using more than one or a combination of these methodologies and therefore, the PMI-ACP certification offers a more well-rounded coverage of these skills, tools, and knowledge areas
    • The certification required you to demonstrate real experience with Agile instead of being related to theory only. You must demonstrate an Agile experience and pass a comprehensive exam evaluated by an accredited certification institute
