Not all projects come nicely packaged with a big red bow. In fact, many come with uncertainty, unknowns, and high rates of complexity and change, which can present problems for traditional project management approaches. That's where agile project management comes into play. In order to successfully manage and navigate high-risk projects, you need a style of management that focuses on continuous improvement, flexibility, fluidity, team input and communication.
