Why Agile?

In today's fast-paced world, pressure to deliver products to market as quickly as possible can also create conflicts, mistakes and backlogs. Traditional project management has long been the standard but it lacks the tools and flexibility needed to meet today's demands. 

Agile project management is popular with software developers because it allows teams to create in a more agile manner, as opposed to the more traditional, linear approach, allowing for faster development and quicker prototyping and testing.

Agile methods are useful because the processes can be applied across industries. So whether you're building airplanes or developing a new platform or structure, Agile provides the skills to take a project from start to finish.

Sprints and Scrums -
 The Foundation of Agile Methodology

Agile project management methodology rests on a few primary practices and concepts, most importantly scrum (Systematic Customer Resolution Unraveling Meeting) and sprints.

Daily scrum team meetings allow team members to get together and discuss their various assignments. They give everyone a chance to review any work in progress while also outlining a timeline for starting new assignments or progressing their current project. Scrum, in essence, allows people to continually readdress anything and everything, meaning all team members have access to real-time feedback from peers.
