What is Agile Management? Agile Project Management is an iterative process that focuses on customer value first, team interaction over tasks, and adapting to current business reality rather than following a prescriptive plan. Agile Project Management is how you deliver high value and technical quality within your time and budget constraints. However, the principles go beyond software development. It’s a mindset for people who need a management approach that builds consensus quickly in a fast-paced environment. Agile Management will help your business with the following:

  • Increased cash-flow through early delivery of value (incremental delivery)
  • Increased profitability by focusing on delivering high Value-for-money increment first
  • Increased profitability by reducing the cost of delay for innovative product development (as opposed to following the traditional ‘big bang’ method)
  • Attract new customers by offering a delivery strategy that delivers value early and often, and reduces their cost of delay
  • Improved working culture of the business by empowering self-organising teams
  • Increase product delivery speed (flow) and profitability by creating a cross-functional ‘general specialists’ capability for product teams
  • Improved profitability by increasing product quality. This is achieved by strategically implementing fast feedback loops thereby reducing operational ‘failure load’ due to sub-standard quality thus freeing up more time to do more value-adding-work
  • Faster de-risking improving end-to-end product development flow reducing the lead time to market and validating the desirability, viability and feasibility of the product/services
  • Via Kanban, work visibility and limiting work in progress to ‘pull’ not push work in the business means improved quality, reduced waste and faster cash flow
  • Improved long term profitability via implementing agile techniques like Scrum increase likelihood of project success by reducing the cost of change of delivering products in complex environments
  • By limiting work in progress achieve reduced staff stress, increased staff morale, reduced staff turn-over leading to longer-term profitability
  • Increased profitability by systematic reduction of waste by application of ‘muda’ Lean principles (TIMWOOD)
