What is Agile?
In its most basic form, Agile is an approach to project management that breaks a project into short phases, enabling project teams to respond rapidly to changing requirements.
It is a highly collaborative way to work on projects, with continuous communication between the project team members. Obstacles are overcome quickly and new ideas are shared to create the most efficient pathway to reaching project goals.
Agile is an excellent methodology for anyone who works on fast-paced projects where the end results are difficult to define.
