The collaborative management paradigm inherent in Agile – a new frontier

The Agile software development methodology has a fascinating range of ideas that can provide valuable learning’s to traditional project managers and in the wider sphere of stakeholder management.

Over the last few months I have been publishing a series of posts on this topic on the PMI Voices on Project Management blog. The key posts with a brief summary and links are:

Agile: The Great Debate

I invite you to read these posts and think on your project management and/or stakeholder management practices.

  1. Agile methods generally promote a disciplined project management process that encourages frequent inspection and adaptation, a leadership philosophy that encourages teamwork, self-organization and accountability, a set of engineering best practices that allow for rapid delivery of high-quality software, and a business approach that aligns development with customer needs and company goals.{{http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3471/3744885992_c2e7b6d25a.jpg}}
