Remember, we are talking about Agile, as in the Agile Manifesto and Agile Principles; not about agile as in agility, flexibility, adaptability.
Continue reading Another article on Agile and busting the myth of ‘Agile, for most projects, most of the time.’
In this post, we are covering the second principle from the Agile Manifesto. The following link is to the
Agile Manifesto – twelve principles. Continue reading
This is the third article on Agile.
The first one covered a discussion on LinkedIn and summarized the key points discussed. With the second article, we started to demystify the concept that Agile is for most projects most of the time. In this second Article, we highlighted the overview mission of the Agile Manifesto.

On 21 March, I started the following discussion on LinkedIn We keep hearing about the PMBOK Guide sixth edition and that Agile is in every knowledge area. That brings two questions: Is Agile for ‘most projects most of the time’ and if not, then why is it in the PMBOK Guide in every knowledge area?

First a disclaimer,
I am not an Agilist
I am not an expert in Agile
My core experience is not software development although I have a project in this area now but as a business and project owner and not an IT guy (developer – service provider ).
I do have three decades of project management experience, mostly on capital projects but also with exposure to numerous other sectors.
So, I write this post with the above in mind – read at your own risk 🙂
