How could one study and practice a formal project management methodology and also use Agile?

The first time one of my coworkers and I went to go speak before a PMI Chapter about Agile, we were led to believe the audience may throw tomatoes. But a funny thing happened, not only was almost everyone receptive, but many people told me, “yeah, we’ve been using some of this for years!”.

Indeed, I have been surprised with the number of PMI members who have run Agile projects – perhaps not in name – under the radar of some large organization. This was very similar to some of may earliest experiences using Agile project? anagement.

I recall when working with a large financial firm, we were told we have a very strict process if we were doing projects of over 400 hours. But if we were below that threshold, there was a much lighter process. You wouldn’t believe how many “396 hour” projects that team executed.

Working with the PMI Agile Community of Practice (CoP) has been a validating experience.? So many project managers are committed to the profession of project management and interested in using Agile practices to improve their craft. In fact, over the past year we within the virtual community have been thoroughly impressed with the number of people using Agile practices in spite of circumstances.

It is with that in mind that we would like to let you know you are not alone, and we want to hear from you. The Agile CoP is hosting an online video contest, “Confessions of an Agile Project Manager”.

Submit your own video in a Pecha Kucha format telling us your story.?? Perhaps it was a guerrilla project conducted quietly so as to deliver value without attracting too much attention, or maybe it was an organizational? transformation. Whatever your experience, we want to hear from you, the community, about your experiences using Agile.
