Agile Project Management (AgilePM) offers a structured and scalable agile project management framework based on proven practice. Here we try to cover some of the reasons why organisations and individuals adopt Agile Project Management (AgilePM):
Full project lifecycle (not only product development):
It's not correct to consider Agile Project Management (AgilePM) as a product development lifecycle guide only, it indeed provides guidance on full project lifecycle with added flexibility and agility, to fit any size or context of project.
Inclusion of change management activities:
Agile Project Management (AgilePM), unlike other project management approaches, offers a specific process for considering how to implement what has been created. This step called deployment, is an integral part of AgilePM lifecycle and focus on how to support users once the deliverables are made available to them, hence supporting the change management activities.
Structured roles & responsibilities:
Resources collaborating effectively is the key to success of any project. Agile Project Management (AgilePM) appreciates this and guides on clear roles and responsibilities in a project team, covering the business interests, the solution/ technical interests, the management interests and process interests. Within self-organizing and empowered teams all working closely together helping break down potential communication barriers and best solutions emerging from the proejct.
Agile Project Management (AgilePM) shares practical ideas for managing project risks. The Project Approach Questionnaire (PAQ) guides on effective starting point for building a clear, collective understanding of project risks and mitigation for the same.
Quality & governance:
One of AgilePM’s underlying principles is Never Compromise Quality. In an Agile Project Management (AgilePM) governed project the responsibility for ensuring that what has been created meets its quality criteria is a core responsibility of all roles involved, and quality is agreed upon before any work is initiated, hence everyone knows what good should look like before they start work ensuring that solution will meet the business needs and the project objectives.
Popular agile practices incorporated:
Agile Project Management (AgilePM) inspires and encompasses widely celebrated agile practices to support effective product delivery and solution development. These practices include MoSCoW Prioritisation, Timeboxing and Iterative Development.
Integrate with existing processes:
Agile Project Management (AgilePM) can serve as stand-alone project management approach, since it has been put together pragmatically to work on its own or alongside more formalized project management approaches such as PRINCE2®.
A tried and tested corporate approach:
The AgilePM methodology is the project management framework – established for over 20 years and regularly updated to reflect current practices and business requirements. AgilePM and the underlying Agile Project Framework have been adopted as the chosen approach by a wide range of organizations representing various sectors and industries. It provides governance and rigour along with the agility and flexibility demanded by organizations today.
