Andy Crowe, CEO and Founder of Velociteach and author of the best-selling PMP® exam prep book on the market, The PMP® Exam: How to Pass on Your First Try, is now conquering the Agile certification exam in his upcoming book, The PMI-ACP℠ Exam: How to Pass on Your First Try, due out early in 2012.
Agile is fast becoming the project management method of choice for those who want a flexible, value-based and people-focused process that allows for continuous project improvement and maximum stakeholder involvement. Once used only by software developers, Agile is now finding its way into many product development projects as well.
“My own path with Agile started over a decade ago when I started using the Rational Unified Process and later the Agile Unified Process,” Andy says. “I am excited to be able to use this book to share my passion for Agile and my understanding of PMI and their credential and exam processes. The information and strategy presented in this guide will give project managers everything they will need to pass the exam and more.”
A leader in the project management industry, Andy’s background with PMI, software development and both Agile and waterfall methodologies gives him a unique voice. As a Six Sigma Black Belt, Andy is well-versed in the Lean concepts that are an integral piece of the Agile process.
PMI, the world’s leading not-for-profit membership association for the project management profession, has already created an industry necessity with its PMP exam. Now, Agile veterans and project managers who want to add the method’s tools to their arsenal will want to take the PMI-ACP exam too.
