This presentation by Michele Sliger is specifically aimed at traditionally trained software project managers who are new to agile, and who would like to be able to relate the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) best practices to their equivalent practices in agile. By associating new agile ideas to things that are already familiar, you can begin your agile journey with a new shared lexicon and knowledge of general agile concepts.
Mapping the PMBOK Guide® knowledge areas to agile practices
Learn how the job of the traditional project manager is redefined into a new - and often more important role in agile
