Description:  Agile through PM Eyes

Let’s overlay agile/scrum concepts, tasks, and roles over the project manager (PMI) master chart of knowledge areas and process groups (phases) and see how they line up.  Where is there overlap, and where are the gaps?  Is there a need for both approaches to work together and in concert.  Come and participate in this interactive ‘game’ and share your own experiences.
