Successful Projects through Agile Project Management

Successful projects are found when project managers (PM) learn to

* Lead a team and not just manage it

* Enable the team to collaborate and self-direct, not just wait to be told what to do

* Facilitate and encourage innovation and creativity in solving problems, not just act as a foreman

Staying aware of the triple constraints (scope, time and resources) is critical, but managing them through the use of a project plan can make it very hard to adjust with changes that inevitably come your way during the project.  Rather, changes can be seen as opportunities to improve the solution and make it fit bestt for the customer / business.

Agile project management is done through the collaboration of teams that consist of the customer, the business, and the project implementation team.
