Practices Guide

What is this book about?

PMI and Agile Alliance have joined forces to create an Agile Practice Guide with the intention to build a greater understanding of agile practices, with emphasis on how Agile relates to the project management community.
The Agile Practice Guide contains the following sections:

  • An Introduction to Agile describes the Agile Manifesto mindset, values and principles.
  • Life Cycle Selection. For Project Managers, the most visible aspect of Agile approaches is arguably the delivery life cycle.
  • Implementing Agile: Creating an Agile Environmenttalks about critical factors to consider when creating an agile environment.
  • Implementing Agile: Delivering in an Agile Environment discusses how to organize a team and common practices the team can use for delivering value on a regular basis.
  • Organizational Considerations for Project Agility. Every project is influenced strongly by the context of the organization. This guide explores organizational factors that impact the use of agile practices, such as culture, readiness, business practices, and the role of a PMO.

Who is it useful for?

Agile Practice Guide has been developed as a resource to understand, evaluate, and use agile and hybrid agile approaches. So it is suits for everyone, who wants to plunge into the Agile, but doesn’t have enough time to search the internet looking for a relevant information.

Reviews

“I feel Practice Guide for Agile is an effort to give an idea about how we can create an environment of agility to get the successful outcome. It is an attempt to support project practitioners irrespective of their environment of predictive or agile or even hybrid of both.”
