Agile project management is an iterative approach to delivering a project throughout its life cycle.
 
Iterative or agile life cycles are composed of several iterations or incremental steps towards the completion of a project. Iterative approaches are frequently used in software development projects to promote velocity and adaptability since the benefit of iteration is that you can adjust as you go along rather than following a linear path.
 
One of the aims of an agile or iterative approach is to release benefits throughout the process rather than only at the end. At the core, agile projects should exhibit central values and behaviours of trust, flexibility, empowerment and collaboration.
 
Benefits of using agile
 
Agile today stands as one of the most popular approaches to project management because of its flexibility and evolutionary nature. It started in 2001 with the Agile manifesto and was originally made for software development. Over time, agile project management evolved and became a popular choice for many project managers, irrespective of the industry.
 
Here are some of the key reasons and benefits of employing Agile and why it is adopted by top companies for managing their projects:

  • Superior quality product
  • Customer satisfaction
  • Better control
  • Improved project predictability
  • Reduced risks
  • Increased flexibility
  • Continuous improvement
  • Improved team morale
  • More relevant metrics

 
Why is agile project management important?
 
Agile project management helps to focus on what matters. Becoming more agile through organisations and team’s brings flexibility to change and allows organisations to deliver value, often with continuous feedback. The goal is not to ‘be agile’ the goal is to improve. With an incremental and iterative approach, predictability is increased and risk is more finely controlled.
