Agile Mindeset: PMI-ACP Exam Domain Details
You want to earn your PMI-ACP designation. This first lecture of the course covers everything that you must have to qualify for the exam. That’s right, now everyone can just sign up and take the examination – there are qualifiers.Here are the basics we’ll discuss in this lecture:There are some prerequisites for the PMI-ACP:
  • 2,000 hours of general project experience working on teams. A current PMP® or PgMP® will satisfy this requirement but is not required to apply for the PMI-ACP.
  • 1,500 hours working on agile project teams or with agile methodologies. This requirement is in addition to the 2,000 hours of general project experience.
  • 21 contact hours of training in agile practices
In this lecture we'll also examine the first PMI-ACP exam objective in detail: Agile Practices and Mindset.
Value-Driven Delivery: PMI-ACP Exam Domain Details
Now we’re moving a little deeper into the examination details. In this lecture I’ll walk you through all of the exam domains and tasks that you’ll be tested on. This lecture is the key to the entire course – as it covers exactly what you’ll be tested on, so pay close attention to this lecture.In this lecture we’re going to talk about the exam blueprint and what you must know. You can also use this blueprint to plan your study strategy accordingly. In this lecture we’ll cover these topics for your PMI-ACP exam:
  • Domain I. Agile Principles and Mindset - 16%
  • Domain II. Value-driven Delivery - 20%
  • Domain III. Stakeholder Engagement - 17%
  • Domain IV. Team Performance - 16%
  • Domain V. Adaptive Planning - 12%
  • Domain VI. Problem Detection and Resolution - 10%
  • Domain VII. Continuous Improvement - 9%
Stakeholder Engagement: PMI-ACP Exam Domain Details
Stakeholder engagement is worth 17 percent of your PMI-ACP exam score.Stakeholders are the people and groups that have a vested interest in the outcome of your project. They are interested in the project’s success, or, in some cases, the project’s demise.In agile project management, you’ll need to keep stakeholders engaged through communication, participation, and value delivery.
Team Performance: PMI-ACP Exam Domain Details
Team performance is worth 16 percent of the PMI-ACP exam score.In agile project management the project team is a resource and is not considered a cost. That’s a big difference from the more predictive approach of project management where the cost of the labor is always seen as a burden to the project’s success.In agile project management the opposite is true because agile projects are almost always knowledge-driven project. In knowledge-driven projects, such as software development, the team competency is the primary resource, not brawn or brute force.
Adaptive Planning: PMI-ACP Exam Domain Details
Adaptive planning is worth 12 percent of the PMI-ACP exam score.In a predictive project, such as construction, the entire project plan is defined before the labor actually begins. In an agile project, there are iterations of planning and many uncertainties at the launch of the project. This exam domain will test your agile planning skills, specifically on these five concepts:
  • Agile projects are value-driven
  • Minimize non-value-added work
  • Plan to replan
  • Early plans are necessary, but they’re likely flawed
  • Uncertainty requires replanning

Problem Detection and Resolution: PMI-ACP Exam Domain Details
Problem Detection and Resolution is worth just 10 percent of your passing score, but this is an important topic. In this lecture we’ll discuss the types of problems that can affect an agile project. We’ll look at several things and how you might go about finding a resolution in your agile project.For your exam you’ll need to be familiar with these topics:
  • Creating a safe environment for the project team
  • Creating success strategies
  • Financial impact of project problems
  • Issues and risks
  • Reviewing technical debt and agile projects
  • Success modes and failure modes
  • The timeline of where issues are discovered
Continuous Improvement: PMI-ACP Exam Domain Details
Continuous Improvement is worth nine percent of the PMI-ACP exam score.While this domain is the smallest of all the exam domains don’t skip these topics. This isn’t a particularly difficult domain to grasp, so that’s approximately ten exam questions in your favor. The three primary tasks you’ll be tested on are:
  • Tailor and adapt the project process by periodically reviewing and integrating team practices, organizational culture, and delivery goals in order to ensure team effectiveness within established organizational guidelines and norms.
  • Improve team processes by conducting frequent retrospectives and improvement experiments in order to continually enhance the effectiveness of the team, project, and organization.
  • Seek feedback on the product by incremental delivery and frequent demonstrations in order to improve the value of the product.
  • What agile project management is and is not
  • Qualifications for the PMI-ACP examination
