Agile Project Management

Agile has become a buzz word for industry and the concept of Project Management using Agile methodologies is very rapidly evolving and will have a significant impact on the project management profession. Changing environments are embraced at any stage of the process to provide the customer with a competitive advantage. Product or services are delivered with higher frequency. Sustainable development is accomplished through agile processes whereby development teams and stakeholders are able to maintain a constant and ongoing pace.

Agile project management continuously evaluates time and cost as primary constraints. Rapid feedback, continuous adaptation and QA best practices are built in to the team’s committed schedules, ensuring top-quality output and proven processes. Agile Project Managers look at proactive, real-time delivery metrics.
