The important takeaway?

Agile project management is about collaborating to iteratively deliver whatever works. Agile PM is about collaborating—and it’s not necessarily Scrum, Kanban, XP or any recognizable agile method. It thrives in dynamic environments where requirements evolve rapidly.

With that in mind, here’s our advice for agile project managers when it comes to choosing an agile methodology.

The agile project management methodology you choose should be one that:

  1. Has a lightweight process
  2. Is accepted by the team
  3. Is flexible and evolving

My point? There is no one-size-fits all methodology that works every time for any team.

What do you think?

So what do you think? Is agile project management a thing, or a misnomer? A contradiction?
