The PMI Agile Community of Practice will launch their community at a special event:

This group of PMI Agilists is sending speakers to present, hand out marketing materials and facilitate open space sessions.

This community of practice is PMI’s first newly formed community in recent years, and is dedicated to raising awareness of Agile practices and techniques among PMI’s members.

“Our mission is to use Agile Project Management to change the face of business as we know it,” says Jesse Fewell, Community Manager for the Agile CoP.,

The PMI Agile community is focusing on building an emerging knowledge base using wikis, blogs and discussion threads. Additional resources include articles, tools and techniques, links to Agile project management literature and more.
