PMI OVOC Kingston Seminar: Nov. 7

"PMBOK, PRINCE2 and Agile — Competitors or Comrades?"

There are some who feel that Prince2 is a competitor to the PMBOK and that Agile is the complete antithesis of both. This session will address the three fundamental goals of any project — to deliver the project's products on-time with the expected degree of quality and value with reduced levels of risk. The three fundamental goals will be examined in the context of how together, the PMBOK, Prince2, and Agile can address People, Process, Product and Presence.

Our presenter, Larry Cooper, B.Sc., M.A is a Project Manager and strategic advisor in the public and private sectors in Canada and the USA. Larry also develops and delivers Agile courses, having delivered the first and only PMI-ACP course for the OVOC.
