This post was originally made in PM Times in June 2010. However, I wanted to make it part of my “Agile Project Manager” series, so I’ve updated and extended it a bit…hope you enjoy v2.
I often find myself teaching various classes on agile methods. One of my more popular sessions surrounds the mapping of traditional project management techniques towards the agile methods. I do this quite often in a wide variety of venues. One metric I’ve noticed is that the more PMP’s in the audience the more spirited the discussions become.
