Watermark Senior Instructor Stevie Peterson, PMP, CBAP, recently added PMI-ACP® to her signature after passing her PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® certification exam, making her one of approximately 4,400 PMI-ACP® certified agile professionals in the world. “Stevie has a breadth of experience across so many different types of organizations and with so many different types of projects, including agile, that it only makes sense that she’s added this certification to her list of formally acknowledged credentials,” said Andrea Brockmeier, PMP, Watermark’s Director of Training Services.
“As we move ahead with the development of our agile curriculum in the first part of this year, she will be invaluable, both as a subject matter expert and instructor. The benefit of Stevie’s background is that her experience resonates really well in the classroom with both BAs and PMs, and now she’ll be able to lend perspective to how those skills translate in an agile environment,” Brockmeier explained. “And, of course, our PMI-ACP Certification Prep course which Watermark will be offering soon. Watch for further announcements.”
Stevie has been an instructor for Watermark for 12 years. In her 25+ years of business experience, Stevie has successfully built, restructured, and realigned public and not-for-profit organizations to meet market demands while serving identified stakeholder groups. She has also successfully directed company-wide programs from a project management perspective involving new, complex product launches and end-to-end process re-design. She has researched best practices associated with virtual teams and has published a handbook for organization development practitioners.“
