isologo-practical-thinking-01

WORKSHOP SUMMARY

Agile methodology is a general approach to project management and product development, which has mainly been utilized in software development. However, Project Managers everywhere are finding they can apply Agile principles and practices to virtually any knowledge worker project in a variety of industries and organizations.

As opposed to the more process-oriented, sequential, predictive structure of traditional Project Management as defined by the PMBOK® Guide, Agile methodology is more adaptive, people-oriented and focuses on constant input and cyclical change, which opens the door for more continuous improvement during the project. Agile methodology creates opportunity for the project team to continually assess the direction of the project throughout its life cycle fostering more consistent, relevant results. Those who practice Agile on a regular basis promote constant effective communication, customer and stakeholder collaboration throughout the project, and rapid response to change.

The PMI –ACP certification recognizes an individual’s expertise in using agile practices in their projects, while demonstrating their increased professional versatility through agile tools and techniques. Certification carries a higher level of professional credibility as it requires a combination of agile training, experience working on agile projects, and examination on agile principles, practices, tools and techniques.
