The classical models of project management have demonstrated limited success especially in dynamic contexts exist in emerging domains like IT and high technology ventures. The inability of customer to forsee and articulate the requirements accurately often results in scope creep and time& cost overruns. This necessitate the need for a complete rethink in the way we execute our projects and have to question the underlying assumptions of the conventional project management techniques. Agile Project Management is a new model of project development which is ideally suited for designing and executing projects in highly dynamic environments that demand constant customer interaction and flexibility. Through a structured iterative approach that provide flexibility and agility, the Agile project Management methodology seeks to address age-old problems that plague projects to create an effective learning environment for executing high performing projects. Through this leaner and more structured approach to project management, organizations can respond far more quickly to change, thereby providing a clear roadmap for implementing high-priority initiatives.
