Cracking the Agile Project Management
Posted on March 13th, 2019 in Discussion | No Comments »
Agile project management differs from traditional methods for its emphasis on the short feedback loops and adaptive cycles. By constantly releasing increments, advocates believe the Agile process is more adaptive to customer value and need.
It was first introduced in the 1990s to replace the heavyweight waterfall methodologies. The early 2000s witnessed a milestone to Agile methods. As ten prestigious practitioners, including Jeff Sutherland, co-presented the famous Manifesto for Agile Software Development. Since then, many work practices have evolved. Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), Feature-Driven-Development (FDD), and Test-Drive-Development (TDD) are just a few of those. However, no matter what they change, the essential principles stay the same, to “de-risk” the business by iterative development, shortened feedback loops, and adaptive planning.
