Hands On Agile Project Management Consultant, Trainer, and Speaker...
Thank you for visiting my web site. I know that there are many companies and consultants out there...and they do deliver outstanding services...So, what makes me and eConsulting Group, Inc. different?...I am not sure, but I do know that we are committed to our customers success, that we are an innovative, a hard working group...and that we do deliver results...
As an owner of a small business, I do not have a big market exposure, but I do have ideas, products and services that keep me in business. I hope that ABOK.org would help my company to connect to potential partners who would like to offer their and our training and certification programs (Agile Expert® and Project Management Expert™) as either Value Added Re-sellers (VAR) or Registered Education Providers (REP). Please contact me at Mike@MikeMarco.com if you are interested to partner with ABOK.org and eConsulting Group.com.
Why did I write A Guide to the Agile Management Body of Knowledge (ABOK)?
Around the year 2007, I saw a need to put all of these wonderful adaptive, management tools in one place and publish it. Since then, I have been putting bits together to build this guide... and it is not done yet. Everyday I learn new tools that should be part of this book.
I know that I do not know everything, but I am willing to learn, adapt, and get it done. These are the three most important characteristics of the 21st century project managers. I hope you agree. 7th edition brings additional tools, concepts, and definitions that I learned in the last two years.
Special thanks to other Agile and SCRUM authors, whose work has inspired me to write this guide. See the authors reference list on the page 2 and the reference links throughout the book.
