Agile Project Management Vs Traditional Project Management

Agile Project Management Vs Traditional Project Management


Hello Friends, welcome to KnowledgeHut. We help professionals to reinvent their career
with more than 200 courses. In this video, you are going to learn about
the differences between Agile Project Management and Traditional Project Management. So let us see the differences between the
two- As the name suggests, Agile is all about being
responsive to changes. Being responsive even while adapting changes
into its core plans is something where Agile puts its focus. Whereas when change is required in the traditional
project management, it requires the manager to step forward. The necessity of managerial intervention makes
the process slow. Coming to the second difference, Agile is
all about customers. At each and every iteration the product is
controlled, tested, and then presented to the customer, so that the customer gets what
he really wants. On the other hand, traditional project management
puts adherence to plan first. Planning is done in the beginning and then
all the focus is given to the completion of the plan. Since the demands of the customer are not
taken into much consideration, therefore, the finished product mostly do not match customer’s
expectations. The third difference is, Agile provides control
to teams at all levels, making them self-sufficient and self-manageable. Because of this, teams perform better and
faster. In Traditional Project Management, control
is dependent on hierarchy. Because of this, the speed of the project
slows down. and as a result, the delivery time of the product also gets affected. The fourth difference is that agile measures
its success only on one metric, and that is the value given to the customer. All the other metrics are not so important
to Agile. In Traditional Project Management, sometimes
so many metrics are followed, that often it is forgotten that at the end of the day what
matters is whether the customer receives what he wants. The final difference, between Agile and Traditional
Project Management, is that Agile is highly customizable as compared to the traditional
Project Management methods. Because of it’s focus on being responsive,
and due to the amount of control the teams have, it becomes easy to bring changes and
customize the processes as per the need. Whereas, the rigid structure, lack of control
with the team and the hierarchy being followed, it is hard to bring changes in Traditional
Project Management. Thank you for being with KnowledgeHut. Till now we have helped more than 60 thousand
