PMBOK or RUP ?



Im sure you are one of them... Just like me.. Just lost in between SCRUM and PMBOK ways.Which way to go.. Both are good .. Both have its - points too. This is a great article which I found and I'm sure this will help most of you readers up to an extend..

"Many organizations wish to standardize their software engineering practices as well as their project management (PM) practices, and two well-known processes are available to help in both these areas, respectively. The IBM® Rational® Unified Process,® or RUP®, offers a prescriptive approach for standardizing on software engineering best practices, and the Project Management Institute® (PMI®) Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge® (PMBOK®) offers a descriptive approach for standardizing on project management best practices. With both these approaches available to organizations, the question becomes: Are they compatible? The simple answer is, "Yes."

But have you seen RUP is practiced as RUP anywhere.. I haven't seen..Because RUP does not cover all the aspects of Project management as a whole. There are many specific agile PM methodologies which are elaborated from RUP which is practiced successfully in the industry.. SCRUM is almost every agile lovers favorite toy at the moment...

I will post a presentation about the comparison between both methodologies in near future.. ( Yeah I hear you I promise a lot and never deliver .. Bad Me!!! ) But this is something which Im working on right now..so I will keep up to my word :-)
