Managing Agile Projects


This best practice explains the concepts, principles, and roles regarding Agile Project Management. 

The Nature and Purpose of Agile Project Management

Unlike a traditional “waterfall” or BDUF (Big Design Up Front) approach, the Agile methodology embraces uncertainty and allows the flexibility to adapt a product to customer needs throughout its development, with minimal waste. According to the Agile Manifesto, a document developed in 2001 by 17 notable experts on various Agile-like software development methodologies, Agile differs from other approaches in that it values:

  • Individuals and interactions --- over processes and tools
  • Working software ----------------over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration----------over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change------------over following a plan
