What is Agile?

Agile is an iterative approach to project management. It enables you to divide a project into time-divided sections and react promptly to change. Agile is used for projects with end results that are difficult to define, or where there is a high likelihood of changing requirements. Although Agile originated within the IT sector, there has been a rapid expansion into other industries in the last few years.

There are a number of subsets (forms) within Agile, including Crystal, Extreme Programming and Test Driven Development. However, Scrum is by far the most widely used of all the forms of Agile.
