PMBOK and Agile are two different process models for project management. PMBOK is a guide that provides principles and guidelines for various project situations, while Agile is a mindset of values and principles that emphasizes flexibility and adaptivity. PMBOK can be applied to Agile projects. You don’t have to choose one over the other.
In fact, the PMBOK Guide’s project life cycle can be related to the process of managing software development projects using Agile. The PMBOK Guide’s life cycle can be broken down into five stages: initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing. These stages can be applied to the agile approach and its iterations.
