Agile Methods Are Project Management Reality

John Storts

According to a survey conducted by Forrester Research, as reported by IT Business Edge blogger Ann All, up to 46 percent of IT professionals are using agile software development methods as an alternative to traditional "waterfall" methods. Agile methods emphasize speedy code delivery and customer value in a highly collaborative, adaptive and iterative environment.


Given Forrester's survey numbers, chances are good that your organization is either in the process of considering or already adapting to agile project management principles and methods. The Knowledge Network and IT Business Edge offer a workforce agility calculator (from our partners at Info-Tech Research Group), research notes, book excerpts and informed opinions on agile project management as applied to software development and projects for other industries.


Use our tools and resources to help evaluate whether agile methods can (or should) be applied to your projects and how to implement them efficiently. Make sure to let us know if you'd like to see additional resources on agile methods, whether you are for them, against them, or use hybrid methods that draw from agile as well as traditional methods.
