Project management has traditionally been a challenging practice, with high expectations, limited resources and, unfortunately, low success rates. In the following chapters, I uncover why project management needs to modernize. I show you historical approaches to project management and explain their flaws and weaknesses.

You find out why agile methodologies are quickly growing as an alternative to traditional project management. I also provide an introduction to the foundation of agile project management: the Agile Manifesto and the 12 Agile Principles. Finally, I show you the advantages that your products, project, team, customers, and organization can gain from adopting agile project management.
