Introduction to Agile for Traditional PMI Project Managers
You are a classically trained Project Management Institute (PMI) project manager. But now you've been assigned to manage an agile project. What do you do? Stacia Broderick explains how to relate PMI best practices to their equivalents in the agile world. By relating the agile philosophy to things with which you are already familiar, you can quickly develop a shared lexicon and clear knowledge of agile principles. In addition to mapping PMBOK areas to agile practices, Stacia focuses on how the job of the traditional project manager is re-defined into a new-and often more important--role in the agile development process. Learn about the changes you must make to lead and support an agile team.
