Conclusion: With business demands driving CIOs to be more innovative and apply digital innovation, Agile project management methodology is being adopted to manage customer-centric projects to create minimal viable products quickly. Agile methodology is used across technology teams in government, healthcare, education and the private sector. The benefits of Agile versus traditional waterfall project methodology such as PRINCE2 include stronger engagement with the business and product owners, better business outcomes, reducing the time to deliver a minimum product and cost savings.
This research paper looks at Harvard Business Review’s comparison of when to adopt Agile project management or when it may be more suitable to apply a PRINCE21. With the prevalence of Agile projects, 50 % of IT staff interviewed across NSW are seeking to upskill and become accredited in Agile project management techniques. This paper includes reference sites on where to gain further insights on Agile project methodology and accreditation.
