What Is Agile?

Agile is a flexible, responsive approach to project management.

It is suited to projects where the requirements are difficult to define and may be likely to change.

Agile approaches break projects into chunks, which give better visibility and the opportunity to respond to change.

  • Accuracy
    Shorter planning, implementation and testing cycles mean faster, more accurate results.
  • Flexibility
    An agile project's direction can be adjusted based on results of work completed.
  • Productivity
    Agile project methods naturally lead to increased productivity and quality.
  • Profitability
    The improved accuracy, quality and productivity of Agile projects contribute to a lower risk factor and cost, and therefore, higher profitability.
