The underpinned principles of Agile project management gives more authority to project team members as Agile encourages self-managing teams (Mahalakshmi and Sundararajan, 2013; Agile practice guide, 2017) The involvement and commitment from the project team leads to an increase in motivated (Azanha et al., 2017) However, this could also viewed as a weakness. As in Agile approaches such as SCRUM, the dedication from team members is important and team work is deeply essential. Agile Alliance (2001) state that for a flat and autonomous management structure agile project management teams should contain more individuals. Due to this, if there’s a lack of cooperation, the project will face failure (Mahalakshmi and Sundararajan, 2013) Despite these strengths, Agile mustn’t be used for all projects as it is most suitable for projects that are dynamic with complex problems and unclear solutions (Rigby, Sutherland and Takeuchi, 2016) Understanding the depth of the project before deciding on the project management methodology used is important (Priyanka, 2016) The projects have uncertainty and constant change as traditional methods such as Prince2 don’t have the flexibility to adapt to change within the project (Azanha et al., 2017; Rigby, Sutherland and Noble, 2018) Weaknesses Unlike Prince2 which can be altered for both large and medium sized projects, agile is only ideal for medium and small scoped projects (Priyanka,2016) However, studies from Rigby, Sutherland and Noble, (2018) shows that scalability is achievable and in doing so, extraordinary benefits are created. Regardless, within large projects, smaller sub-projects may be created focusing on specific goals and in this regard Agile could be used, causing better results to be obtained. Both Pawar and Mahajan (2017) and Priyanka (2016) suggest integrating aspects of both Prince2 and Agile. The use of both these methodologies in a complex project could increase project success rates (Priyanka,2016) An example of integrating both Agile and traditional methodologies such as Prince2 can be seen at Bosch, a global supplier of services and technology. Bosch adopted Agile methodology as traditional methodologies weren’t effective in a quick-paced world. However, Bosch integrated Agile with traditional methodologies as Agile wouldn’t have been appropriate for all aspects of the organisation. The company report that most of the business adopted agile values and consequently are adapting at a quicker pace (Rigby, Sutherland and Noble, 2018) Salesforce.com Denning (2011) explains how salesforce changed from using traditional PM approaches to Agile for IT projects in just 3 months. The results showed a reversal in company financial trends as well as value increase to customers. This caused annual return to shareholders to rise to 41 percent after 5 years of using Agile project methods for project management.
