What is Agile Project Management?

Agile Project Management is a method of project management designed to allow projects to be flexible and adaptive throughout their development. By combining traditional project management techniques with the ideas behind Agile, which is traditionally a method of software development, Agile Project Management provides an approach which allows managers to embrace change and ensures that the project delivered will be exactly what the customers want. Agile Project Management is provided by the global accreditation provider APMG.

What is Agile Software Development?

Agile software development is a set of methods and practices that are used to create effective solutions through collaboration. Solutions for Agile come from self-organizing and cross functional teams that utilise the appropriate practices for their context.

What is Agile in IT?

Agile is an approach for software delivery that builds software from the original creation all the way to the end of the project. With Agile you will build the software in gradual stages instead of all at once, this will help to deliver a more effective software as more changes can be made throughout the process.

Case Study

Mastek, a multinational IT services company based in India, used Agile Project Management to improvement its approach to product development.

Although they are based in India, Mastek have off-shored some parts of their business. Structuring the business in this way means it is essential that products are delivered on time and according to customer requirements. To do this, the Agile methodology was used to work directly with the customer or business at each stage. This has strengthened Mastek’s customer relationships, as their clients are actively involved in developing the products and able to decide if alterations are needed. Using Agile also means Mastek and their clients understand each other better; how they work, what pressures they are under and what challenges may occur.

Overall, since implementing Agile Project Management, Mastek have synchronised their onshore and offshore teams to work as extensions of each other, managed to reduce the governance required, and increased communication between these teams by using social media and video conferencing.

I have used many training providers for our company's training requirements and I was referred to The Knowledge Academy. The training has been better than my existing training provider. As a result we have decided to move all our training to TKA
