Agile Project Management uses an iterative approach, which focuses on delivering project outputs as quickly as possible and in a progressive manner, rather than the one-time planning and delivery approach. Often, the software and product development industries use this approach.
Using the iterative approach, Agile Project Management principles enable software developers to constantly adjust and review their software development processes. This helps to improve their performance incrementally and come up with a quality product.
