WHAT IS AGILE PROJECT MANAGEMENT?
Agile project management focuses on continuous improvement, scope flexibility, team input, and delivering essential quality products. Agile project management and its associated tools and techniques help companies, teams, and individuals adhere to the Agile Manifesto and the 12 Agile Principles, which focus on people, communications, the product, and flexibility. AgilePM is the world’s leading framework and certification for project management.
Key benefits often attributed to Agile include improved revenue and speed to market, developing the right product/solution (through iterative development and incremental delivery) and increased collaboration and customer satisfaction. Since its introduction in 2010, AgilePM has fast established itself as the leading framework for agile project management.
