Excellent, outstanding post.

Can you reconcile how a company which deploys large “end products” such as a turned-up telecom network, AS OPPOSED TO A SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT, can implement Agile Methodologies? I realize that is one of your main questions here, has it been somewhat answered?

In other words, how do the methodologies of Agile lend themselves to general project maangement?

First, let me say that Agile was envisioned as a body of software development methodologies, and neither as a product nor a project management methodology, per se. However, there are quite a lot that can be learned from Agile methodologies, especially for the implementation and operational stages of a system.

We have been developing methodologies for project, program and product management that include Agile elements. Generally, we establish processes for three tracks: strategic, tactical and implementation. In general, the Agile elements come in for the implementation track, whether we are implementing a software product, doing integration into an enterprise, or deploying a large, complex system.

One must identify those components that lend themselves to agile-like iterations, and those that require compliance with “set-in-stone” standards. The purpose of Agile Methods is to improve quality (compliance to specifications) and user satisfaction, while reducing complexity and decreasing delivery time. If you can identify those elements of your system, and treat each set accordingly, while communicating to all involved persons, then you’ll likely have win in applying Agile to Project Management methods.

First of all, nice blog! I saw a list of useful links on your blog, and I thought at you probably meant to link to the PRINCE2 official website using PRINCE2 text. You might want to know that the official website for prince2 is actually prince2.org.uk. I thought this link might be more beneficial for your visitors.

Thank you for the link. I’ve updated the post. As noted in the update, both links for Prince2 actually go to training and accreditation sites.

Best Regards,
