Agile Program Management, or Agile Process Management, or simply Agile refer to an iterative, incremental method of managing the design and build activities for engineering, information technology, and other business areas (Marketing, Product Lifecycle Development & Supply Chain) that aims to provide new product or service development in a highly flexible and interactive manner; an example is its application in Scrum, an original form of agile software development.
Agile also traces its evolution to a “consensus event”, the publication of the “Agile Manifesto” and it has conceptual links to lean techniques, kanban and the Six Sigma of business ideas.
The Agile Manifesto, also called the Manifesto for Agile Software Development, is a formal proclamation of four key values and 12 principles to guide an iterative and people-centric approach to software development.
