I’ve been getting a number of questions about possible changes to the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® exam. This is understandable, since the newly released A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Sixth Edition included an agile appendix and came bundled with the new Agile Practice Guide. Also, the Project Management Institute (PMI) has listed a 2018 “exam update” for the PMI-ACP credential on their Registered Education Provider (REP) website. Despite this, there are no changes that will affect someone who is studying to take the exam.
Upon learning of the death of Ed Yourdon I immediately went to my bookshelf and started reviewing his books. Mr. Yourdon didn’t know me, but I feel as if I knew him. Throughout my career, he always seemed to be there when I needed some direction or a new approach to analysis. I recommend many of his books but one in particular was very important to me: Death March.
