Agile Training from New Horizons

Agile Project Management is the terminology used for project management using Agile methodologies. The style of project management which aides agile activities, such as daily standups, dynamic scope, collaboration among the stakeholders, continuous integration, etc. can be called Agile project management.

Agile project management is an iterative and incremental method of managing projects—delivering projects executed in a highly flexible and interactive manner. The method requires the empowerment of the team members with continuous feedback from the suppliers and customers. The main purpose for the method is to bring functionality to the customer faster; prioritizing functionality for a cheaper end product.

Business Benefits of the Agile Methodology

Although designed originally for the software industry, many industries have now adopted the use of agile in their development of products and services because of the highly collaborative and more efficient nature of the methodology. Agile is also used in industries like marketing and advertising, construction, education and finance.

The more traditional cumbersome methodologies like waterfall typically require entire project groups to meet and discuss full project goals throughout each phase. Agile, however, uses smaller more focused groups that meet more frequently to discuss very specific goals, making it easier to make rapid changes as required.
