September 19th, 2019 • Project Management
The Agile project management (APM) framework is an iterative and cohesive method of effective project management during the entire lifecycle of the project. It successfully integrates the traditional aspects of project management with modern requirements within the scope of the project. Rather than focusing only on the development of the final product within the given constraints, the APM framework focuses on delivering both quality and value under the same conditions.
In the APM Framework, the entire project gets divided into smaller, achievable milestones that are completed in iterations. Quality control is built into the whole process and teams check the quality of their completed milestones after each cycle.
The Agile project management framework gives numerous benefits to users in both efficiency and effectiveness. The greatest benefit it offers is the quick ability to change the direction of the project in order to meet the changing demands of the project. In traditional project management methodologies, there are just too many processes, and incorporating changes is hard. Agile project management principles give complete freedom to the team members and prioritize customer demands over other factors.
The five phases APM framework, as introduced by Jim Highsmith in 2004, directly correlate with the phases of project management defined in the PMI Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK). Here’s how they are connected along with a brief overview of each phase.
