PMI-ACP? is the fastest growing
certification in PMI history with more than 28,000
certification holders. This is not a fad! It is the new
reality!! Employer demand for agile project management
skills are driving career opportunities. Being a PMP? gets
you the interview but knowing Agile can get you the job!
The good news is that many PMP’s are more qualified than
they realize. You may not be using Agile vocabulary,
but you are using core Agile practices like Rolling Wave
Planning, Progressive Elaboration, and Decomposition.
Did you know that the research in Dan Pink’s renown book
“DRiVE” revealed part of why Agile works? In DRiVE the
core principle that Knowledge Workers – the kind you have
on your teams – are motivated by Autonomy, Master and
Purpose. If you want to AMP your team up, then be sure
they have Autonomy, Master and Purpose. Coincidentally,
agile pivots to success by integrating best practices that
deliver those 3 elements.
But there are three questions you should
be asking yourself.
Am I among the many successful PMPs using core Agile
practices without knowing it?
Am I waiting for an “Important and Urgent” crisis –
like an unexpected “career transition” – to prove 7
Habits was right?
Do I really think that Google, Amazon, Facebook and
Apple (GAFA) haven’t changed my customer’s
expectations and therefore my career needs?
