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.
The Agile project management process—a business approach that aligns development with customer needs and company goals—encourages frequent inspection and adaptation, teamwork, accountability, self-organization and best practices that allow for rapid delivery and high quality.
