About the Program

Agile or PMBOK? You Can Have Both!

A common misconception exists among many practitioners who think an Agile approach means abandoning all of the knowledge areas and processes emphasized in the PMBOK® Guide. Nothing could be farther from the truth!

Join ESI International's Vice President of Consulting Services, David Sides, PMP, in this compelling presentation where he will use real life examples to verify that basic project management principles apply, regardless of the development approach. Leveraging the best of both the PMBOK® and Agile methods can deliver the highest value.

By attending, you will learn:

  • How both traditional and Agile methods and techniques compliment each other
  • When to use traditional vs. Agile methods
  • How to use "Achieved Value" (AV) instead of "Earned Value" (EV) to measure the value of project delivery

Don't miss this opportunity to learn how adopting the methodology of the PMBOK® with Agile's delivery approach can create an environment encouraging project success!
