8 Benefits of Agile Project Management
There are so many advantages you’ll gain by using Agile in your project work. Here, we have highlighted our top 8 benefits of Agile.
Adaptability is a defining characteristic of an Agile approach to projects. Agile is designed to handle and even welcome change.
The whole methodology is built for projects with continually changing requirements. It’s a great choice for anyone with evolving or difficult to define project criteria.
Agile is also set up for continuous momentum. One of the 12 principles of Agile is that the pace must be sustainable. This is a much more reliable approach than spurts of intense productivity followed by burnout.
Agile projects deliver value early and frequently throughout the lifecycle of a project. Customer satisfaction is the top priority of an Agile project, and early and regular value delivery ensures this. It also promotes higher quality and a more tightly prioritised project overall.
Every element of Agile project management contributes to a higher level of quality. Teams communicate continuously and priorities are reviewed regularly. Simplicity is emphasised at all times and project teams are supported in every way.
5. Greater Control
Through the regular review and re-prioritisation prompted by an Agile approach, you’ll retain a greater level of control over your project budget and scope.
6. Stakeholder Engagement
With customer satisfaction as such a core priority, regular contact with project stakeholders is standard during an Agile project. A greater level of stakeholder engagement keeps everyone involved on the same page, and ensures that priorities stay relevant.
Agile project teams communicate continuously, preferably with face-to-face conversations. This frequent and clear interaction encourages the sharing of ideas, solutions, and better ways to do things. Obstacles are overcome faster and miscommunication is minimised.
8. Lower Risk
All of these benefits contribute to a lower level of risk with Agile projects. You’ll gain greater visibility on the progress of the project and spot any potential obstacles in time to resolve and refocus.
