icon Understanding Agile from a PMP®s Perspective! Exploding the myth that Agile is not in the PMBOK®.

Have you been wondering, "What is the PM's role in Agile?" or "Can Agile projects coexist in a Traditional environment?" or "What is the relationship between project-type and Agile tools?"

Many PMP®s have been told, often by well-meaning but uninformed, "experts" that Agile is outside the PMBOK® Guide and there is no role for project managers. Those myths have no basis in fact!

Fact #1 – Long before the Agile Manifesto the PMBOK® Guide included Rolling Wave Planning, Progressive Elaboration, and Decomposition... three core concepts Agile simply can't live without.

Fact #2 – The Agile focus on serving the customer, as practiced by many agilists, has a blind spot because it ignores the needs of the company – what we call the organizational customer – for budgeting and sophisticated scheduling tools that none of the Agile frameworks provide.

Those two facts are the tip of the iceberg! Learn the whole truth during this powerful presentation.

The PMI-ACP® has become the fastest growing certification in PMI history! It now bigger than the PgMP®, RMP® and SP® combined! In 2 years it has achieved the same growth as 5 years for the PMP®!

This presentation is an opportunity for you to achieve clarity about if, when, and how to use Agile. 
It will be an energized, powerful presentation with lots of time for Q&A.

The future of project management is not a choice of traditional or agile, the future is hybrid, customized practices.

PMI-ACP®'s are required to master and demonstrate – via a serious exam – that they know five agile frameworks (not just one). PMI-ACP®'s learn to define hybrid practices that adapt to the content and context of the project and can be scheduled and budgeted!

Because many organizations now recognize the competitive edge that Agile gives them, they are seeking project managers with agile expertise. The PMI – Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP®) "sets the bar" for agile project management professionals with documented work experience, rigorous training, and a challenging exam!

This presentation is your opportunity to get a super-charged jumpstart into understanding Agile.
