Agile and PMI

This category contains topics associated with the relationship of  PMI strategy and certifications to Agile and how the two areas are related.  Agile is having a huge impact on the entire project management profession that requires project managers to learn how to blend Agile and traditional plan-driven project management principles and practices.  PMI is really scrambling to develop a new direction to keep pace with this evolution.  Some of these changes in direction include:

  • Radical new revisions to PMBOK – For example, PMBOK version 7 is expected to be much more lean and principles-based and give more general guidance
  • New Project Management Certifications -PMI launched the new PMI-ACP certification some years ago and is expected to broaden the scope of the PMP certification to include more content on Agile.
