No 'IT' in 'agile'

Companies use agile project management to deliver change that is sustainable, and it is often used in IT projects because it is technical in nature. However, project professionals are using agile for non-IT projects. This article features five project professionals discussing how they have adopted agile for non-IT projects. It explains how one project professional used agile to perform duties as a stage manager at a blues festival and how another project professional used agile to manage marketing campaigns. In addition, it also details how agile practices were used on an HR recruitment initiative and to manage a portfolio of marketing collateral projects ranging from print to video. Another project professional explains how Kanban was used in a supply-chain optimization project.
