About the Book Club Meeting
The PMIWDC Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management.

About the Book
Traditional, hierarchical organisations struggle to keep pace with fast-moving markets. But they struggle even more to change. How do you break down chains of command and rebuild something better ? Increasingly, smart companies are turning to Agile Management. With Agile, networks of small, cross-functional teams tackle tasks in short cycles, continually adjusting for customer feedback. When done right, even global giants can learn to act entrepreneurially. The Age of Agile clearly explains how Agile works, provides examples of the method in practice, and shows how to scale it company-wide to become more adaptive and innovative.

Don't forget to register for the Monthly Chapter Event which takes place immediately after the Book Club.
Based on the amount of time you will spend in self-directed study of negotiation – we estimate up to six hours of reading, which converts to up to 6 PDUs for qualified PMPs who are under the 30 PDU limit for their current three year certification cycle. Please note that these PDUs will need to be reported as Self-Directed Learning. For full details on PDU reporting refer to the PMP Handbook.
About the Monthly Book Club
The Monthly Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management. There is no Book Club membership. Anyone can sign up to join our conversations. There are just three key requirements: preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy of the book to the meeting. Note that you should sign up early as we limit the discussion to fifteen people so that everyone has a chance to share their opinion.
Come to the Book Club with an open mind and prepare to have your understanding adjusted as you hear about the book through the voices of your professional peers.
Studying project management and related topics through books is recognized and rewarded by PMI in PDUs, roughly on the basis of one hour of study equals one PDU. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
