Are You a Next Generation Project Manager?

Enterprise Agile Planning

In today’s business world, it seems the demands placed on project managers continue to pile up. Now, CIO reports that Forrester analyst Mary Gerush has published a report entitled “Define, Hire and Develop Your Next Generation Project Managers” that proves just that.

According to the report, in which Danube’s own CTO Victor Szalvay was listed as a source contributor, project managers hoping to compete in today’s business landscape require “enhanced leadership skills,” flexibility and a focus on business value, and, more than ever, a strong familiarity with agile project management techniques and processes.  That latter point dominates the majority of CIO’s synopsis, as Gerush points out that companies are transitioning from traditional management to agile because they “are striving to achieve faster [software] delivery without diminishing quality or increasing cost.”

What are you seeing at your organizations? Has knowledge of agile methods become a necessary part of successful project management at your organization? If so, how much has it eclipsed the traditional practices that companies have relied on for years? I’m curious to hear just how widespread and mature agile and scrum adoption really is.
