Agile for Project Managers
Agile Stakeholder Engagement
Agile project management is a proven approach for designing and delivering software with improved value to customers. Agility is all about self-directed teams, feedback, light documentation, and working software with shorter development cycles.
The role of the project manager with agile differs significantly from traditional project management in that there is minimal up-front planning. Agile for Project Managers will help project managers from any industry transition to agile project management.
The book examines the project management component of agility, concentrating on industry standards, certifications, and being agile. It also compares agile methods to traditional project management methods throughout to provide readers with a clear understanding of the differences between the two. The book’s focus is in alignment with the Project Management Institute (PMI®) Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP®) credential—making it an ideal resource for anyone preparing for the PMI-ACP® exam.
The excerpt from chapter 5 focuses on the importance of stakeholder engagement on the agile project. This is an essential practice that ensures a successful product delivery. In particular, the excerpt focuses on getting the right stakeholders involved in the project, cementing stakeholder involvement, and managing the varied interests of stakeholders.
