Per the Agile Business Consortium, business agility allows businesses to adapt quickly to market changes; respond rapidly and flexibly to customer demands; adapt and lead change in a productive and cost-effective way without compromising quality; and continuously be at a competitive advantage. The primary reason for moving to Agile is to achieve faster business value and keep you ahead of the competition. Agile is built for change - fundamentally, it is about creating Business Agility. It enables the enterprise to deliver projects more efficiently, with relentless focus on business value and providing the highest return on investment. Whether it is a software project, a new service offering or a new product, Agile’s twelve principles and three pillars (transparency, inspection, adaptation) are designed to reduce money spent on undesirable or unusable features which were built based on outdated requirements.

How are processes developed today and where does the customer fall within your processes? Is the customer simply a participant in your internal processes, or is her desired outcome your focus? Do you use automation to facilitate design and adherence? What about collaboration with the employees who know the processes the best; those performing the work? In this video lecture, we describe Agile Process Design and why this approach is important to both Project Managers (part of the deliverables) and Business Analysts (focus on needs).

Agile Project Management requires some additional skills to be possessed by an Agile Project Manager. It does not only involve managerial skills but also requires more team-oriented and leadership skills. Agile Development is a value-driven model with focus on outcomes unlike traditional approaches which are plan-driven in nature and based on output. At the same time, the centripetal force for success of the agile-based project is the agile team which executes it. It also requires additional skills in terms of adaptability, self-organization and motivation to continuously improve.
