The proven effectiveness of Agile approaches and processes has made them a favorite for project managers the world over. They encourage an iterative management style, encouraging collaboration, self-organization and adaptability. By focusing on short term gains, they make it far easier for project leaders to keep stakeholders and clients engaged.
