What is AgilePM?
AgilePM (Agile Project Management) is an iterative approach, where business cycles are used to plan and complete each component of a project. Originally designed to improve the process behind software development, Agile has been leveraged for project management more generally, particularly around areas of innovation.
Capitalising on the cross-functionality of teams, AgilePM enables different parts of a project to be completed in parallel as opposed to linearly. Following the completion of each step, the iteration is scrutinised by the project’s team and stakeholder representatives. By continuously reviewing and responding the end customer’s feedback rather than the completion criteria, a team can refine the necessary steps to make a project as time-efficient and profitable as possible.
