Will it give future PMP exam the Agile certification for IT
You will not find a definition because it does not exists. Agile something does not exist. That is because you will not find reference to Agile something inside the PMBOK. Thanks God or any other Force you think that governs the Universe. On the other side, the project manager role exists inside the methods based on Agile. In fact, inisde DSDM, the name is project manager.
Agile is another project framework that is becoming a growing speciality. Yet many companies claim to hire people with that title and don't even understand what that entitles.
To get more information on Agile, its best to learn it using the SCRUM methods.
Sorry Salvatore, but I do not agree with you. Agile is not a method. To understand what Agile really is people can search for USA DoD NSF/Agility Forum which was the place where Agile and Agility was formally born, or Mr. Rick Dove´s work named "Response Ability" which contains most of the deliverables of the forum. I have the opportunity to write a short article for the PM Network magazine : "Perfectly Positioned",http://www.pmnetwork-digital.com/pmnetwork/april_2016?pg=73#pg73
On a side note, thanks for the link! :)
Agile in NOT a methodology but a methodology based on agile values and principles can define roles, practices and so on and may not highlight the need for a PM.
Even on the smallest project or product, project management as a set of competencies or disciplines is needed, but having a defined PM role might not be required in small, low complexity projects following a particular agile methodology.
As complexity and size scale, the need for a PM becomes pretty evident...
Agile PM has an iterative approach to planning and guiding project processes. Just as in agile software development, an agile project is completed in small sections called iterations. Agile is an umbrella term for several iterative and incremental software development methodologies. So it's a framework, nor the methodology. Scrum Is a framework.
Just to clarify the point (at least my comment. I have the opportunity to work in the new PMBOK and all related standards with focus on Agile and Business Analysis). All I will write you can read inside the guides and standards. 1-Agile is a practice. You have other practices like Lean, Six Sigma, etc. 2-Project management is a profession (for me a pseudo-profession but it is a matter of other debate). To perform project management you can take a way: PMI´s way, GPM´s way, etc. 3-Project are started to create something then you need a process to do that (formal and informal) usually named life cycle. 4-You have life cycle models (only two: predictive and adaptive), you have life cycle process based on those models (iterative, sequential, waterfall, etc), you have methods based on those life cycle process (SDLC, V, Spiral, Scrum, DSDM, etc) and at the top of the pyramid you have tools that supports the methods (any type of tools). So, you can perform project management using any type of life cycle process and/or method and/or tool following some way l. For example, in the organization where I am working today, the same project manager is manging at the same time a project using waterfall and a project using Scrum. At the same time, in parallel. Then, you can infer why talk about Agile PM has no sense. In fact, it jeopardizes the work of people that are working as project manager and most of people that are trying to get a new job as project manager.
That is why PMBOK is called "book of Knowledge"
