The APMG’s AgileDS™ course is designed to enable you to participate effectively in Agile service delivery following the GDS framework.

It will provide a solid grounding in Agile principles, processes and ways of working, covering:

  • The underpinning philosophy and principles of Agile Digital Services
  • The lifecycle of an Agile Digital Services initiative
  • The effective application of key Agile techniques
  • The roles and responsibilities within an Agile Digital Services initiative
  • Mechanisms for planning, control and governance of an Agile Digital Services initiative

At the end of the three-day course delegates can take the AgileDS™ Foundation Exam and, if successful, optionally take the AgileDS™ Practitioner Exam on the fourth day of the course.

IndigoBlue has extensive knowledge and experience of GDS. We managed the delivery of a transformational project with the Home Office and the Amberhill team in the Metropolitan Police, winning a UK IT Excellence Award — this project was cited as a best practice case study throughout 2011’s System Error report which made recommendations to Government around the use of Agile in digital services; these recommendations served as a precursor to the formulation of the GDS standards. Since then, we have guided similarly transformative projects to success at ONS, MOJ, HMCTS and the FCO.

All of our training is provided in-house at our clients’ offices by expert practitioners and – at no additional cost – we tailor our courses to the needs of our clients.

  • Practising delivery managers

  • People working in the private sector looking for a robust standard for the design, delivery and evolution of digital services

Learning outcomes

By completing the course, you will gain an appreciation of Agile roles, responsibilities and behaviours so that you can form productive and strong working relationships with Agile delivery teams.
