Welcome to the Agile Guide by Wrike

What do you think of when you hear the word “Agile?” Words such as “flexible” and “adaptable” probably spring to mind. It’s true — Agile teams are designed to pivot quickly and adapt to change without much difficulty. That’s why Agile methodologies have become such a popular way of working for project managers.

Over the past two decades, many companies have realized that some traditional approaches just don’t cut it in the modern world. As Forbes put it, “firms have to be nimble, adaptable, able to adjust on the fly to meet the shifting whims of a marketplace driven by the customer.” While a linear Waterfall methodology might have worked in the past, it makes sense that many are now making the switch to Agile.

And it’s not just tech giants that favor this flexible approach — companies across other sectors are realizing the benefits, with manufacturing brands Lego and John Deere opting to integrate Agile best practices into their development teams.

Here at Wrike, we believe in the power of Agile. Our platform is designed to be tailored to individual teams and can be adapted for any project. We enable Agile teams to plan sprints, prioritize backlogs, and track progress with our versatile software.

In this extensive guide, we will outline the main values, principles, and benefits of Agile project management. We will take a closer look at how Agile teams work and what methods they use to get the job done. We will also provide tips on how to create strong epicsuser stories, and story points

We hope this guide will help you successfully navigate the world of Agile project management. Use it as a resource and share it with your teams to deliver the best results.
