Now, one of the field's leading experts brings together all the knowledge and resources you need to use APM in your next project. Jim Highsmith shows why APM should be in every manager's toolkit, thoroughly addressing the questions project managers raise about Agile approaches. He systematically introduces the five-phase APM framework, then presents specific, proven tools for every project participant. Coverage includes:
Six principles of Agile Project Management
How to capitalize on emerging new product development technologies
Putting customers at the center of your project, where they belong
Creating adaptive teams that respond quickly to changes in your project's "ecosystem"
Which projects will benefit from APM—and which won't
APM's five phases: Envision, Speculate, Explore, Adapt, Close
APM practices, including the Product Vision Box and Project Data Sheet
Leveraging your PMI skills in Agile environments
Scaling APM to larger projects and teams
For every project manager, team leader, and team member
Project management, at least that sector of project management dealing with new product development, needs to be transformed, but to what? It needs to be transformed to move faster, be more flexible, and be aggressively customer responsive. Agile Project Management (APM) and agile product development answer this transformational need. APM brings together a set of principles and practices that enables project managers to catch up with the realities of modern product development.
The target audience for this book is project managers, those hearty individuals who shepherd teams through the exciting but often messy process of turning visions into products—be they cell phones or medical electronic instruments. APM rejects the view of project managers as functionaries who merely comply with the bureaucratic demands of schedules and budgets and replaces it with one in which they are intimately involved in helping teams deliver products. Agile project managers focus on products and people, not paperwork.
