In this post, we will minimize the words and go with images from our upcoming book on CAMMP™ Continue reading
Well, it has been roughly two weeks since the new PMBOK Guide, Sixth Edition is out and the online community is flooded with posts on this topic. Some posts go through extensive details even comparing page count on a chapter by chapter basis.
As someone who has been using the PMBOK Guide, since the first consolidated edition in 1996, and who have learned project management pre-PMBOK Guide, we have a few posts on the subject as well.
Today’s post, the 5th in the series, is about tailoring. What does tailoring refer to in the new guide? Read on: Continue reading
We have been hearing about the #PMBOK Guide going Agile for a year now; or more. However, now the new #PMBOK Guide is out, where is #Agile?
This question reminds me of an old Wendy’s commercial about “where is the beef?” Continue reading
A recent post on the project life cycle has been generating quite a bit of interest and discussion on LinkedIn. The post is “Once again, what is the project life cycle?”
Well, in this follow-up article, we will highlight some of the confusions that remain and present a few project life cycle examples. Continue reading
Recently we did write more than one article on Agile and how it does not work on capital projects.
Remember, we are talking about Agile, as in the Agile Manifesto and Agile Principles; not about agile as in agility, flexibility, adaptability. 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.
Today, we will start covering the various principles, or at least one of them. With each post, we will explain why we think Agile does not work for capital projects and possible other non-software development projects. Continue reading
This is an update from an earlier post. In this update, I will focus only on the comments and other related information.
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?
- If it is ‘most projects most of the time’ and it belongs to the PMBOK Guide, then would we still need PMI-ACP or would the PMP covers the Agile Principles?
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 🙂
