Agile Project Management

agile project management cycle

Is your team being pressured to get products and services to market sooner? Sometimes existing project management practices can impede your team’s ability to deliver projects on time and within budget. Agile Project Management can help you turn things around.

Agile Project Management is a set of principles for managing projects based on the Agile Manifesto in which the highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software, and where late-in-the-game changes that provide competitive advantage to the customer are gracefully included. Agile Project Management emphasizes:

  • Self-organizing teams
  • Customer collaboration
  • Rapid releases
  • High visibility via “information radiators”
  • Flexible iterative approach that responds to change
  • Brief, daily meetings and shortened delivery schedules in place of formal project management

This rapid-response way of approaching project management comes with a new set of phases with a new set of vocabulary to match. These seven phases of Agile Project Management are:

  1. Vision
  2. Product Roadmap
  3. Release Planning
  4. Sprint Planning
  5. Daily Scrum
  6. Sprint Review
  7. Sprint Retrospective
