Agile Project Management Methods

We have to quit using traditional project management methodologies, especially in IT projects. The right way to go is flexibility. Being agile, thatís the name of the game!

Project Flexibility and Being Agile

One way to be flexible and agile with projects is to do research mulitple vendors, this provides choice. For example, when procuring vendors for a project, research as many as possible that have the qualities that are being sought after. Doing this provides a choice of vendors that can be used. If something happens that causes one vendor not to be able to fulfill the requirements, we then have other vendors available to choose.
Another way to be flexible is in assignment of tasks. Tasks can be assigned using rotation of tasks. For example, assign tasks to be performed by each team member for a specific amount of time. After that time period is finished, reassign the tasks to different team members. This will allow each team member to contribute to the project and experience different aspects of the project.
