New Horizons Learning Group provides you with the foundation to drive Scrum management and Agile practices both within your work group, as well as across your company.
An Agile project manager emphasizes facilitation, leadership and communication over traditional command-and-control activities. The ScrumMaster's role is to maximize the team's efforts toward its goals while removing the impediments that stand in its way.
Agile Project Management
Agile project management is an iterative and incremental method of managing projects—delivering projects executed in a highly flexible and interactive manner. The method requires the empowerment of the team members with continuous feedback from the suppliers and customers. The main purpose for the method is to bring functionality to the customer faster; prioritizing functionality for a cheaper end product.
The Agile project management process—a business approach that aligns development with customer needs and company goals—encourages frequent inspection and adaptation, teamwork, accountability, self-organization and best practices that allow for rapid delivery and high quality.
Scrum, one of the largest and fastest-growing Agile project management methodologies, is a simple software management technique that has a small set of interrelated practices and rules, is not overly prescriptive and is able to produce productivity gains for software development teams almost immediately.
