Agile originated from software development, and as a result, most techniques provide guidance on continuous delivery, meaning it's about iterative development and frequent releases or updates, rather than one big project that delivers a product at the end. Therefore, when applied to project management, it differs from the more traditional methods.
It's a flexible approach to project management based on principles of continuous improvement and collaboration – teams are encouraged to work together efficiently and creatively. Projects run in an agile way use quick, iterative project release cycles, meaning teams work in small, doable increments and regularly evaluate requirements and results.
Agile methods allow for changes to be made based on stakeholder feedback, which means scope can evolve over the lifecycle of a project. In an agile project, only time and cost are fixed.
These days, many organisations use a blend of approaches to manage and deliver projects, which is why an increasing number of project managers are looking to upskill with agile training.
