Product overview

Project management skills continue to be desired by employers, and those with qualifications can often demand a higher salary. Project managers are valued for their flexibility, agility and, increasingly, ability to align with the strategic goals of the business as project management moves from being a specialist discipline in software environments to a general business skill.

Adaptable Project Management – A combination of Agile and Project Management for All (PM4A) dispels the myth that Agile approaches to project management can only be used for software development. It also recognises that there are both benefits and drawbacks to all project management methodologies. Following detailed analysis of Agile practices and the traditional waterfall approach, author Colin Bentley proposes a new method of project management using principles that focus on PM4A (project management for all).

Adaptable Project Management:

  • Enables readers to understand how to approach projects where the full requirements are not known at the outset
  • Gives advice on how to combine the benefits of Agile and waterfall project management methodologies for successful project implementation
  • Helps readers take a thorough approach to risk management
  • Provides a universal approach to project management, making sure that it is accessible for multiple industries and not wedded to software development practices

Project managers, IT managers, consultants, and other senior managers trying to develop a project management approach suitable for their organization, or those employees expected to take on project management or ‘client/product owner’ roles without any briefing or other support will find this book extremely valuable. It will also benefit any readers doing a project assurance review for the first time, as well as Agile users who want to know how to fill the gaps in their current method, such as quality and risk management.

About the author

Colin Bentley

Colin Bentley is the author of the original PRINCE2® manual for the CCTA (Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency). He was the Chief Examiner for the Association for Project Management and the CCTA until his retirement.

Colin has had more than 20 books published, lectured widely on project management and acted as project management consultant to such firms as the London Stock Exchange, Microsoft Europe, and the BBC.

Colin created the PM4A method for smaller projects. Feeling that a better method could be found by combining this waterfall method of project management with Agile principles, he wrote Adaptable Project Management, a comprehensive method for handling any size of project, especially those where the scope and detail are not known at the beginning.
