Our book hit a high of #5 on Amazon’s best-seller list for Technical Project Management books! Even more encouraging, it was one of only two books in the top 10 that wasn’t a textbook or an exam-prep guide.
Thanks to all of you who have helped us achieve this very cool marker of early success!
When to Use Agile, and When Not to
I get this question a lot, and while there are many factors that ultimately demand the answer “it depends,” that answer isn’t particularly useful. As a result, I wrote a blog post about it, and also addressed this topic in the appendix to my book.
The PMI Montgomery County Chapter’s annual symposium is coming up! On October 15. CEO Mike Hannan will be co-presenting on Agile Governance, focusing on how to apply an “apples-to-apples” view of different project buffer types to balance buffers across hybrid portfolios of Agile and traditional projects. Mike will be conducting a book-signing of The CEO’s Guide to Breakthrough Project Portfolio Performance, as well as offering discounts on the book.
In both sessions, we will be teaching our newly rolled-out technique, Maximal-Impact Project Selection (MIPS), first introduced in our book, which will be provided at no additional charge to all registered class participants.
