Agile, PDLC, and You
Neal Reizer and Priyanka Sharma
Much is discussed about the role of the project manager in an Agile project. But what about the role of Agile in, well, the business? Agile doesn’t happen in a vacuum. We will start with an overview of Agile and the project manager in the context of the product development life cycle. From that perspective, we will then narrow our focus to leadership aspects provided during the Agile development process. Don’t throw away or ignore PMBOK skills if you “Go Agile.” Just transform them (and yourself) a bit, and then trust your instincts in the situations that emerge. Our goal is to provide a structure for the project manager to understand their role as leader on an Agile team and how they can provide a holistic approach to the management and governance of projects.
