PMI-ACP Exam Prep
I wrote this book to help people prepare for and pass their PMI-ACP certification. Having worked on the design of the PMI-ACP credential I knew the exam tested a multitude of concepts drawn from domains such as leadership, lean, kanban and agile approaches. So, I wanted to create a source that explains all the ideas in a single consistent voice.
Alistair Cockburn and Dennis Stevens, who I worked with on the PMI-ACP Steering Committee, generously wrote the following endorsements:
“As one of the authors of the Agile Manifesto, I am delighted to see this book by Mike Griffiths. It is great that such an exam guide was prepared by someone with a deep understanding of both project management and Agile development. Personally, I hope that everyone reads this book, not just to pass the PMI-ACP exam, but to learn Agile development safely and effectively!” -
Dr. Alistair Cockburn, Manifesto for Agile Software Development Co-Author, International Consortium for Agile Co-Founder, and Member of the PMI-ACP Steering Committee
“This is a VERY enjoyable book to read, due to Mike's firm grasp of the underlying concepts of Agile, and his articulate and entertaining writing style. My favorite part is the fact that it is organized into a framework that helps all of the Agile concepts hang together, so they will be easier to recall when taking the PMI-ACP exam. But Mike's book is more than just the best PMI-ACP prep book out there. It is also the best consolidated source of Agile knowledge, tools, and techniques available today.
Even if you are not planning on sitting for the PMI-ACP exam in the near future you need to buy this book, read it, and keep it as a reference for how to responsibly be Agile!”
