Paper Title:

Agile Myth Busters: That’s Not Agility…


In my experience supporting organizations with learning and implementing agile practices of project management, I have seen many agile myths shared as facts. The purpose of this presentation is to bust the myths of why and how to implement Agile project management practices for your organization or your project.

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 a new certification, the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)®. The result of this fast growing certification is the creation of a new space where Project Management and Agile Practices for Software Development meet. This calls us to ask how we transition from traditional project management to agile project management.

What is Agile Project Management and when does it make sense to use agile practices? When requirements and environmental conditions are in flux, our ability to respond to changing needs is critical to managing projects with agility. When should you implement agile practices and how do you implement agile project management in a traditional project management environment? This presentation will address these questions based on best practices and experience in this field.
