Agile Project Management vs. PMBOK® Guide

Agile Project Management (APM) emphasizes quick, responsive interaction — something that would seemingly clash with the PMBOK ® Guide — as many authors have pointed out in the past. This abstract from Best Practices PMP Training begs to differ, citing the areas the PMBOK ® Guide and Agile Project Management work together (namely in flexibility of roles, fitting for change, and interative life cycles). The abstract does note, however, areas where the two differ: the PMBOK ® Guide emphasizes a “push approach” that is more granular, and also PMI puts the responsibility solely on the project manager, unlike APM which puts accountability for projects on the whole team.
