Are you agile?
The use of agile as an approach to managing projects has increased over the last several years. As a result, the Project Management Institute is granting the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)credential. This article discusses what it takes to be agile. In doing so, it identifies three critical skills that project leaders must develop for their agile projects to deliver real results: take something big and make it small; build in slices, not layers; and learn to soften the blow. These skills are essential to achieving project success.
