Project Management Methods
What is agile, and how to 'become' agile?
Agile does not equate Scrum, or implementing Kanban Boards. Agile is a mindset focused on communication, transparency, self-organization, which needs to become a common culture across the entire organization to make it work.
Effectively managed projects increase efficiency, both in the short term and long-term. They will save costs, time, and reduce frustrations for teams.
A variety of reasons which may contribute to struggling projects: often it is rooted in imperfect communication, unrealistic targets, insufficient risk management. But there are a multitude of aspects which can go wrong in projects.
I can support you to identify areas of improvement and coach your team to manage projects more successfully.
