Agile Project Management Is Not Enough

For agile project management, agile development methodologies (such as Scrum and eXtreme Programming) alone are not enough. Scrum is excellent for managing a project team's workload and delivering products incrementally through iterative development. Although PMBOK really embodies all we 'Agilists' refer to as traditional project management, it is a very useful resource. No doubt it includes traditional project management practices that are not appropriate if you are doing agile. But it also includes key aspects of a project that need managing which are simply not addressed by Scrum or eXtreme Programming.
