I’m reading a PM book on how to apply PMI principles and practices to teams using agile software development methods. The book is “The Software Project Manager’s Bridge to Agility”. The authors spend a few chapters on what Agile is and then spend most of the book on how to map the PMBOK guide to agile practices. I’m 1/3 into the book, so far the authors have done a good job on describing agile. My previous employer was implementing Scrum in R&D which is the reason I am interested in the subject. My experience with PMBOK is it’s not especially relevent to software development projects. I’m hoping this book will help guide me on how to combine PMBOK and agile methods/tools.
I haven’t gotten into how the mapping works and would like to hear from anyone else who’s read the book, was it worth the read.
