Knowledge BaseThis page is used to ask questions related to the mission of the PMI-Agile Forum.

Rather than creating a new page for each contribution, just add the questions to this page.

Answers to questions can be entered as edits to this page or as added comments.


Can we add sections to the methods page? ie




• Crystal

• Lean Software Development

• Dynamic System Development


• Adaptive Software Development

• Feature Driven Development

and I think there were more in Jesse's article on PMI sig?


Some ideas - not sure how to fit into the taxonomy:


Agile Contracting and Contract Templates


- Special circumstances: Distributed teams (physical location, time zone), shared codebase among multiple project teams, need to keep some shared resources ie SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) that are multitasked across teams, what about really big products with >> number of developers, etc  


- Agile case studies, and list of companies that are actively using


- Changing a company’s culture (ie how do I get my company to consider adopting Agile, can we just we just adopt a few parts, where is the 10 steps to adoption plan, what are the benefits that would convince people to change? The metrics to measure that the change helped us improve? Answering management’s FAQ )


- Career paths and certifications


- Distributed / Remote Teams and Agile (put in Large projects area for now)


- Agile PMO


- Testing/QA in Agile



Prerequisite Concepts

Q: As Mike Beedles or Mary Poppendieck explain it well, it is not just a matter of understanding the how, but a matter of fully grasping the why. Between 1.1 Values and Principles and 1.2 Practices and Methods, I think we need a 1.x Helpful Concepts and Theories. This is where all the supporting theories and concepts useful in understanding how Agile is different and relevant, such as everything that can be found in Chapter 6 of "Agile Software Development with Scrum", or the Thinking Tools presented in "Scaling Lean & Agile Development", would be introduced. What do you think?

A: this will be addressed through the FAQ

Hi Dennis and knowledgebase team, I've added a few practice additions to the lknowledgebase and now I have questions. Did you want us to copy paste the table format? Why do we need size? Do we really need the contributor name - I don't really want to see my name repeated many times on a page just because I posted a few links. :-) Just some thoughts...

Also where do Agile PMO article links go? Is that all part of the Agile on a larger org?

Actually - I'd prefer not to edit into a table format since that is more formatting work --- unless that is going to be a great assist to the PMI site migration????

Margaret, thanks for the contributions. What I had in mind, but probably did not explain very well, is that a new page could be created for each new piece of content. This is because only pages can be "tagged". If a "template" is used when the page is created, it will contain the default table used to populate the attributes. If you don't feel comfortable supplying all the possible attributes (i.e. size, contributor) don't worry about it. The group may want to discuss attributes further...
If people create new links on the knowledge base category page directly to external sources, and uploaded files, it will reduce our ability to tag and identify the artifact, but will reduce the number of pages we create. I'm not sure what the right answer is... Again, a subject for discussion.

Thank you Dennis - Let's do whatever will transfer easiest up to the PMI site. Since this is really a temporary place.
I will go ahead and post a few references using the table template to test that out. So I can report in on Friday in our call.
