Red-flags in Project Management
Now that I am again gainfully employed I can make my (unrequested) suggestions to Seattle area employers without caring if I piss them off.
A trend I have noticed, as have other true Agile & Scrum PMs I've talked to, is a lack of real Agile or Scrum positions. It seems that a lot of companies have caught on that Agile & Scrum are the future, and advertise for these positions but when push comes to shove are running Waterfall projects. Here's a tip for these companies: if you require a PMP or use MS Project, you are running a Waterfall project.
Waterfall and Agile don't play nice together. You cannot run a Agile or Scrum project in MS Project. It is designed specifically for Waterfall and the core methodology is completely different.
Further, you are discouraging real Agile and SCRUM professionals from applying because they generally want to work on *Agile* and *Scrum* projects.
