The classic project management is a bit like preparing a meal by recipe. You know exactly which ingredients you need in what quantity and also which tools you will need. A traditional project management approach would be perfect here as you buy the ingredients from the shopping mall and follow the recipe. It becomes more complicated when you try to invent a new recipe. The technology remains largely the same, but the requirements are less clear. You have to budget more, you need more ingredients and you probably have to taste the dish several times.And this is where the approach of agile project management comes into play. Identify risks and initiate countermeasures for unexpected challenges.In classic project management, goal clarity and scheduled task scheduling have top priority, which is often justified and leads to the desired success. But in times of the digitalisation of business models, this approach can turn out to be an obstacle.Agile project management promises remedy, where classic project management does not lead to success. The agile approach utilises various methods, e.g. SCRUM or KANBAN, which rely on communication, flexibility and customisation.
