How does the „agility“ trend
affect project management?
Author: Alexander Koschke, Tiba Managementberatung GmbH
Project (in Latin, proiectum, neuter form of proiectus: thrown
forwards) primarily means projecting into the future, predicting
and planning for the future; and management (in Latin, manus
agere: to lead by the hand) literally means to take by the hand.
That means the project manager takes those involved by the
hand and leads them through the projected plan. This creates
security for the project participants as well as for the management.
Agile (in Latin, agilis: nimble) on the other hand means
to move in a nimble and fl exible way in a complex environment
and to keep adapting. „Inspect and adapt“ and self-guidance are
the new buzz phrases. How is that compatible with planning and
taking by the hand? Is agile project management not a contradiction
in terms? Or is bringing „agility“ (whatever that means)
into project management the next logical step, and perhaps
even „essential to survival“, to make project management viable
in times of extreme complexity and Industry 4.0? In this white
paper we want to take a closer look at what actually lies behind
the hype of „agilisation“ and how we can use it to transform
