I recently reviewed the books I used to prepare for the PMI-ACP exam. I took that exam about 4 years ago. If you’re interested in my quick notes see https://markrajpal.com/2013/05/09/pmi-acp-agile-certified-practitioner/
The experience of reviewing these books was analogous to watching a movie for the 2nd time. I picked up quite a few things that I completely missed or got completely wrong the first time through.
My suggestion is this. Take some time to review the Agile material you immersed yourself in when you were at the “Shu” stage. For example:
- White Papers
- Research Papers
- Study Guides from course
- Notes from conferences
As you’re reviewing the material ask yourself, do you agree/disagree? I feel this is an appropriate question to ask because at this point you’re probably at the “Ha” or maybe even “Ri” stage.
I’m not suggesting you go back and re-read everything. But you may want to flip through the material and pay special attention to tables & figures, and maybe read the end of chapter summaries. Is there anything you completely disagree with and maybe even with the Agile community at large? Maybe it’s worth sharing.
