Success of agile project management greatly depends on the approach to requirements specification which includes several best practices. The agile approach promotes a highly iterative, collaborative environment in which the team, project manager and senior stakeholders enjoy flexibility in addressing any inherent risks associated with managing requirements. An interesting feature of this approach is that a change to project requirements can be turned into a competitive advantage later on, as compared to the traditional approach which doesn’t ensure adaptability to the changing environment. In this article, I write about 5 best practices for managing requirements in agile projects.
It is nearly impossible to do a project without effective teamwork. The term “teamwork” means the process of acting collaboratively with a group of people in order to accomplish a shared objective. Teamwork creates and shapes the collaborative effort the team makes to move the project to success. However, it is complicated enough and brings a set of challenges. In this article I’m going to describe three components of the Agile approach that can help project managers team up their people and ensure effective collaboration.
Lack of trust between the customer and the development team blocks success of the project. Agile PM practices allow reaching mutual understanding of the project and its requirements so the parties know how to establish trustful collaboration with each other. In this article we talk about agile project management and how it contributes to building trust between the customer and the dev team.
The PRINCE2 methodology generates a range of activities to manage project constraints such as issues, risks, quality, business requirements, and so on. In order to plan and deliver a PRINCE2-driven project, the project manager needs to understand what activities to run and how they supposed to be managed. In this article we present five models of PRINCE2 activities. The models describe Business Case, Quality, Risks, Issues, and Work Done. The information in this article will help you better understand PRINCE2 activities.
Traditional project delivery has similar principles and practices with the agile project management methodology (Agile PM methodology). Both approaches aim to deliver measurable results in timely manner. Agile PM adoption – or a transition from the traditional project delivery approach to the agile project methodology – becomes a quite predictable and manageable activity that can be accurately planned in a sequence of simple steps taken before any actual development process takes place.
