  • Agile PMI - blurring the boundaries

    PMI becomes shameless. Is institute of sparky project gurus that learn how to become PM for everything from food processing through software to skyscraper's construction woke up and smelled invetible end of PMBOK in the air?
    Is it a prank or a deliberate effort to pull off some of the cake?
    I don't have enough time right now to go over PMBOK chapters and point out polar views between agile and it. However document first waterfall in purest shape invention (or formalization)does not fit at all.
    Suggestion: Ladies and gentlemen’s from PMI remain themselves and don't chip in!! Agile never wanted to claim PMI branch within its movement and please appreciate it!
    Perhaps there is a dim light in a tunnel even for you.

    Aleksander,

    Yes, the PMBOK contains some problematic quotes (e.g. "add additional resources to complete the same amount of work in less time"), but it is also very inclusive ("iteration" and "iterative" are mentioned 17 times). Therefore, our job as Agile practitioners is to show all the PMI and Prince2 project managers out there that there is a more effective way to run projects.

    I do believe there is a dim light at the end of everyone's dark tunnel; it's called hope. Traditional project managers need hope, and I think Agile PM is the only thing out there offering that hope. Furthermore, if we can use PMI to reach those project managers, why not? Doctors need to go to where the sick people live...and all those confused project managers out there need YOUR help.

    Hi Jesse,
    I've never heard such powerful and sincere admiration about agile with admittance that some classical opinions were wrong.
    I wish you though good luck with change appliance and doctor work - I really do. But anyway is PMI going into official appreciation of some agile, lean practices?
    Cheers,
    Aleksander
