It was in the 1990's that agile development processes began to be explored in contrast to plan driven management of projects. This change was motivated by the idea that a plan driven approach was more suitable for smaller projects that had a limited scope while for bigger and complex projects a more agile environment was required. An individual with an Agile certification is seen as flexible, nimble and adaptable by organizations. The certification allows projects to be taken as iterative rather than cyclic and more immune to risks and uncertainties. This basic nature of the certification makes it highly suitable for a global and a dynamic business environment. It evaluates a project manager's knowledge and understanding of principles and processes based on Agile methodology. The certification is highly sought for in software development projects.
As in the case of other certifications, the first step is to procure the application form, duly fill it and submit it. A candidate can opt for submitting the form and appearing for the test online or a paper based test. Paper- based tests are reserved for those that live 186.5 miles of greater away from the nearest testing center. The certification exam requires answering 120 multiple in a total of 180 minutes. Out of the 120 questions, 20 are pretest questions and 100 are for evaluation. Examination questions are equally divided over testing understanding of candidate for Agile tools and techniques and knowledge and skills related to the methodology. The knowledge and skills part is evaluated over three Planning Levels'.
