Agile Project Management
The use of Agile techniques has more than tripled in the past three years as business and industry transition from a more rigid process-driven culture to a customer- and business value-driven approach. Agile is now commonly applied to large, company-wide projects in software development, internal information technology and in an ever increasing variety of hardware product development.
