You are required to, as a team, investigate agile project management. The following broad issues must be addressed:
1. Define agile project management (including key artefacts);
2. Define traditional project management;
3. Study strengths and weaknesses of at least two agile project management methodologies;
4. List some challenges of implementation of agile methodologies;
5. Highlight impact of agile project management on IT projects.
NB: please is the most important research paper of my final year at school. I would really love to get answers here thank you.
I am a Masters student in Project management (I have a bachelors in Mechanical engineering. ) and requires a thesis to be completed in 4 months. It can be an empirical or conceptual paper. I was looking around integration of agile project management in automation or industry 4.0, but could not zoom in on a particular research question. it would be great if any one can help me.
Could you please provide me a document that related to my dissertation topic or any advice that could be useful for me?
Kindly note that I am studying MSc project management and my topic is (The impact of Agile project manager on productivity in IT industry).
The more complex in requirements and longer the project duration, the higher chance of scope creep in the project.
Is Agile methodology a suitable solution in minimizing scope creep?
Is Agile appropriate in complex and longer duration projects?
According to Robert K. Wysocki, there are 4 quadrants of PM methodologies.
If the Goal is Clear and Solution is Clear, we use Traditional Project Management (TPM). eg. linear processes and typical waterfull method.
If the Goal is Clear and Solution is not Clear, we use Agile Project Management (APM). eg. Iterative and Adaptive project management processes.
If the Goal is Not Clear and Solution is Not Clear, we use Extreme Project Management (xPM). eg. cure the common cold through various means. However, are we really curing the common cold?
If the Goal is Not Clear and Solution is Clear, we use Emertxe Project Management (MPx).
Which is your most commonly used PM methodology? For me, they are TPM and APM.
If the project's goal and solution are both not clear, it is really a huge challenge for the Project Manager.
What I am missing in PRINCE2 is the guidence how to organize agile development team and how to manage changing business requirements in a less bureaucratic way. In Scrum I am missing some basic project management themes like business case, risk management, roles including RACI and project governance.
What are the main differences between APM and the so-called Traditional Project Management? Which advantages and disadvantages are related to this simplifying discipline?
