What is Agile Project Management?

Agile is a responsive and value-driven approach to managing projects.

Although it originated in the software development sector, its intuitive and practical characteristics have led to Agile becoming one of the world’s most widely utilised project management methodologies.

Characteristics of Agile


  • Responds easily to changing requirements
  • Suits projects with difficult-to-define criteria
  • Early and frequent value delivery
  • A collaborative approach for project teams

Agile & Scrum


You’ll often see Agile and Scrum mentioned side by side. This is because Scrum is a form or ‘sub-set’ of Agile.

It’s helpful to think of Agile as the overarching philosophy and Scrum as a way or set of tools for implementing Agile.
