I completed the Project Management Institutes, Agile Project Management certification, and am eager to implement the Agile process into my future workflows! Although I have used similar management strategies in the past this was my first introduction to the Agile model.
The 4 values of agile, caught my attention right away.
- Value individuals and interactions over processes and tools
- Value working software over comprehensive documentation
- Value customer collaboration over contract negotiation
- Value responding to change over following a plan
I have been a-part of management strategies good and bad, and I think these values perfectly reflect what I feel is important and lead to ultimate success. Valuing individuals, interactions, and collaboration are not only important in project management but are key to successful relationships in the workplace.
