Agile Project Management aims to outline fast, flexible, customer value driven approaches to projects.

With Agile approaches, the project is seen as a series of relatively small tasks conceived and executed as the situation demands in an adaptive manner, rather than as a completely pre-planned process.

The assumption from day one is that the only thing you can count on is constant change. Changes will occur throughout the project process that make it impossible to precisely define the traditional variables of time, cost, and scope up front. Therefore the focus is on value delivered and changes are expected, in fact even embraced, throughout the project.

On gantthead, Doug DeCarlo's eXtreme project management department provides a tremendous amount of information on agile approaches and techniques.

More information on Agile methodologies can be found from this and this articles

ADVERTISEMENTS

"It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars and so on -- whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man -- for precisely the same reasons."

- Douglas Adams
