JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - May 19, 2016 - PRLog -- Hunter & Associates Principal Lewis B. Hunter, Jr., has earned the Essential Principles of Agile Management Certificate from Villanova University.
The certification was the culmination of a course that covered key doctrines, roles and terminology of an Agile environment. It was the first course of Villanova's three-part Master Certificate in Agile Management program.
"Agile is the emerging process improvement approach that's enabling a growing number of organizations to see quicker wins and create higher quality deliverables--enhancements which can ultimately improve efficiency and bottom line results," according to the university's online description of its program.
"Exceptionally collaborative and adaptive by design, Agile breaks projects into small, manageable pieces, allowing project teams to quickly identify and resolve any issues early on."
Hunter applies agile management principles as an adviser to small and medium-sized businesses. A certified public accountant (CPA) as well, he specializes in assisting transportation consultants with cost accounting, overhead rate management and exit planning.
Hunter is also a Charted Global Management Accountant (CGMA), which recognizes accountants who combine financial expertise and business acumen, and a Certified Information Technology Professional (CITP), which is awarded to CPAs who provide business insight by leveraging knowledge of information relationships and supporting technologies.
"Entrepreneurs, particularly architects and engineers, must maintain proficiency in their technical skills while managing their businesses efficiently," Hunter said.
"This challenge often requires them to do more work in less time-without sacrificing quality. Agile management is one of the techniques we use to help them do so."
Agile organizations complete 80 percent of their projects successfully (on time, within budget and meeting original goals) versus 60 percent for their slower-moving counterparts, according to the Project Management Institute's 2016 Pulse of the Profession® report.
