Have you ever wondered, “What is the next major trend that will impact my career?” Unless you’ve been living in a cave, it is impossible to miss that demanding stakeholder expectations have driven Agile into the project management profession. Because of the success Agile has generated at the team level for every Fortune 2000 company, government agency and military command they are clamoring that Agile be “scaled up” to create advantages across larger horizons and more complex challenges.

Competing to be ‘King of the Hill’ in that arena are Scaled Agile Frameworks and the PMBOK® Guide Sixth Edition. Together they are the next mega-trend on a collision course with your career!
