Paper Title:

Agile for Non-IT Practitioners


In today’s world of fast paced technology and continually changing requirements and project scope, the need for Agile Project Management has greatly increased. Responding to this demand, the PMI® (Project Management Institute) launched the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)SM certification in the past few years. The result of this certification (which continues to be the most rapid growing of the PMI certification) is the creation of a new space where Project Management and Agile Practices for Software Development meet.

The foundation of Agile is the Agile Manifesto for Software Development. Agile has been used for software development for a number of years, even prior to the creation of the Agile Manifesto in 2001. The success of Agile for software development projects has bread interest in employing it in many other fields. How can Agile practices be used for projects which are not software or IT in nature.

This presentation will provide guidance on how Agile can be used beyond software development projects and how one can move from traditional project management to Agile project management. What is Agile Project Management and when does it make sense to use it? How Agile practices are incorporated into traditional project management. Recommendations for implementing Agile Project Management will be introduced.
