The Community Guide of the PMI-ACP (login required) is an initiative of the PMI Agile Community of Practice to provide ongoing support for the PMI-ACP agile certification. Community volunteers played a crucial role in the creation of the certification (as recently highlighted in PMI Today), so it only follows that they should also be the ones to mature it into the future.

What about the AgileBOK?

There will be no Agile Body of Knowledge (AgileBOK) supported by PMI.  PMI does not own, maintain, or support ANY web presence that lives outside of PMI.org. There is not, and never should be an authoritative standard for Agile. Having an AgileBOK would invite all PMI project managers to rigorously follow a standard and never adapt, tailor, or innovate their processes. This counters what we as Agilists stand and strive for.

How can you contribute? Team members will work as individual contributors within the Community Guide project. Their involvement may vary based on the nature of the work and their availability. If you are interested in creating or maintaining articles for the Community Guide, contact the current co-leaders of the ACP Support Team: Joeseph Flahiff and Derek Huether.

Who is the Community Guide for?

The Community Guide is intended to be the authoritative source for all the stakeholders in the PMI-ACP ecosphere, including:

• A study reference for those pursuing the PMI-ACP credential
• A training reference for REPs and trainers
• A technical reference for exam writers

What does the Community Guide cover?

The Community Guide is a unique community resource, offering:

• Links to relevant PMI documents regarding the certification
• The original intent of the PMI-ACP creators for each topic on the exam
• The current community consensus on how each topic works on “most agile projects, most of the time”
