Mastering the Art of Agile Project Management

The project I am overseeing is a high-profile and fast-pacing project that do not allows any new functionalities to jeopardize the go-live schedule in the next couple of months. Even at this stage, with the increasing customer’s expectations and the organization may facing cost pressures and there is a need to track and maintain close relationships with the internal staff (stakeholders) and Customer. Likelihood that we have to manage uncertainty and to be able to do more with much less in such environments. This situation always happen in vendor-working environments.

In this environment, we needs to apply agile methods to implement the developments with flexibility, speed and value. Items include looking into iterative releases of some functions or defects as not to compromise the project’s delivery. When coming to reviewing of change requests, we need to understand the Customer’ values on them. No longer are traditional project methods like waterfall models can be applied on todays’ project management. Although systematic project models are still applicable but we have to understand on different situations where projects bring about customer’s values we have to work differently.

I have a chart on the Roles and Responsibilities for Agile Project Management (adapted from the book “Managing Agile Projects” by )
