Agile PM® – Foundation
In today’s competitive and ever changing business environment, delivering solutions that enable early realisation of benefits is both a desirable and critical business capability. Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) is a scalable methodology to quickly deliver small enhancements to existing solutions to full scale conceptualisation and delivery of large and complex business process solutions and products. AgilePM is a robust but flexible methodology that has a clear advantage of fixing the project time and budget whilst maintaining the minimum expected levels of quality. It further acknowledges and accepts that the solution will evolve over the project’s lifespan.
