Master and integrate PMBOK, Prince2, and Scrum – and leverage them to keep even the most complex project on course!
PMBOK®, PRINCE2®, and Scrum are today's three most widely recognized project management standards. The most successful project managers know how to draw on all three, and often combine them to deliver their projects more effectively and efficiently. In Mastering Principles and Practices in PMBOK, Prince2, and Scrum, Jihane Roudias shows project managers how these methods complement each other, how to integrate them, and how to troubleshoot projects involving any or all of them. Roudias illuminates core project concepts, processes, and areas of knowledge in each methodology, guides you in synthesizing them, and reviews the types of difficulties you may encounter in each project process. Drawing on extensive personal experience, Roudias also emphasizes the importance of project risk management, monitoring, and evaluation systems – and demonstrates how to use them to make timely and informed decisions at every stage of your project. For every project management practitioner and student pursuing PMBOK/PMI, PRINCE2, and/or Scrum certification, or seeking to use these methodologies together to achieve better project performance.
