Agile Programme Management uses all the agile tools and techniques from deep within the projects (delivery teams) to the top most level of the programme resulting in an governance which ensures that programmes remains focused on delivering incremental business value while project teams are empowered enough to prioritise the deliverables at their level according to the ever-changing business needs.
