1.2. Project Management

As described in the Agile Manifesto, traditional waterfall software methodologies and lifecycles have failed to delivery projects on-time and on-budget. In addition, many systems built this way will fail to provide the expected business value as there is no ability to quickly refine the requirements as the project progresses.

Consequently software development has been transformed with these new ideas and concepts, with new methodologies such as Extreme Programming (XP), Scrum, Kanban, DSDM and AUP becoming common. However the traditional tools of project management - requirements specifications, high level project plans, GANTT charts, white-board schedules and top-down task management - are too cumbersome and not well suited.

SpiraTeam® provides a complete Agile Project Management System in one package, that can manages your project's requirements, releases, iterations, tasks and issues in one environment, fully synchronized.
