What is Agile Project Management?

It is a philosophy and method of project management. Agile is frequently used in software development but has been readily adopted by other industries. Agile promotes a collaborative working environment where customer satisfaction is the key driver.  

Agile involves a continuous cycle of steps that break projects into smaller pieces that are prioritized by the team. Instead of taking aim at a large target, you take aim and tackle a series of smaller targets—eventually achieving your total project goals.
