This facilitated discussion is for experienced agile practitioners, those new to agile, and traditional project managers who are curious about how their skills might translate to an agile approach.

Many believe that there are many aspects of the PMI PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) that are contrary to agile values and principles. For example, a focus on managing to a defined schedule is certainly not in alignment with the agile value of “Responding to change over following a plan”

As an agilist, should you be looking more at some of the concepts and practices identified in the PMBOK and how they might contribute to success in agile? If you are a traditional project manager, how can you leverage your experiences and knowledge to help agile projects and programs be even more effective?

Never been to a IIBA/COHAA LIG? LIGs are a unique event where a facilitator presents a 5–10 minute primer on a topic, and then we open up for discussion. Everyone is encouraged to add to the conversation through either questions or their experiences and knowledge. We limit attendance to 20 people to enable an open discussion, so sign up early.
