Agile Project Management Master
Traditional plan-driven methodologies used in software development assumed that the business requirements seldom change over the duration of the project and laid greater emphasis on large planning and designing efforts at the beginning of the project. Agile methodologies emerged in the 1990s as more and more projects with dynamically changing business requirements failed and all the up-front planning and designing efforts were wasted. There are multiple approaches to agile followed by separate communities and leaders like Extreme Programming (XP), Scrum, Lean software development etc.
