Project Management: Enhancing Value with Agile Practices

Determining the project management strategy that is best suited to a particular project or portfolio of projects is essential to any organization’s success. Project management that incorporates agile methodology can help meet the need to customize and scale practices to the context of a specific project and to the mission, goals, and values of an organization. This approach is also attuned and applicable to projects whose team members have varying degrees of geographical dispersion, from full colocation to fully remote team members across multiple time zones. Align with Agile’s ability to enhance value, simplify work, raise productivity, and foster innovation and creativity.

Career Outlook

The global Project Portfolio Management (PPM) market was valued at 4.2 billion dollars in 2020 and will reach 5.6 billion by 2025, growing at a rate of 6% during this period.
