Detailed Description:“…a well written and content rich book. From a teacher's perspective, using this book in an advanced project management seminar challenges students to understand the application of these concepts.”
—Alexander Walton, PMP, IT consultant to the University of California at Berkeley

Widely acclaimed as one of the top agile books in its first edition, Project Management the Agile Way has now been updated and redesigned by popular demand. This second edition is in a modular format to facilitate training and advanced course instruction, and provides new coverage of agile, such as hybrid agile methods, the latest public sector practices, and a chapter dedicated to transitioning to agile. It discusses the “grand bargain” between project management and business; the shift in dominance from plans to product and from input to output; and introduces new concepts such as return on benefit.

Experienced practitioners and students that want to learn how to make agile work effectively in the enterprise should read this book.

Individuals preparing for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® examination, and training providers developing courses, will find this second edition quite helpful.

Key Features:

• Provides a modular sprint-like format, with module themes, learning objectives, project tips, and discussion questions to facilitate training and course instruction

• Presents a review of popular agile and iterative methodologies for project and program management

• Explains how to transition to agile and how to scale agile methods for enterprise projects

• Discusses agile as a hybrid with traditional waterfall methods and supplies practical tips and application advice for how to harmonize agile with mainstream project processes

• WAV offers a new discussion and instruction guide that can be customized to meet the needs of the individual trainers or instructors, essay type answers to critical thinking questions raised in the book, and new white papers—available from the Web Added Value™ Download Resource Center at www.jrosspub.com
