Having an integrated understanding of customer and business needs,
a command of technical components, a keen eye for upcoming technology
trends, strong communication abilities and a tight grip on the
ramifications of change are critical. Here are some steps you

Agile practices are not intrinsically “value-adding”
— they must be aligned to business needs and goals in order
to provide true value. By measuring their agility based on compliance
with a particular method, organizations may prevent their teams
from adapting practices to suit projects with different characteristics
Project management in practice struggles to evolve, and we consistently
fail to take the actions we know we should. Human inertia is too
strong an influence to ignore if we want the future of PM to be
that much different than it is today. If it were to be different,
however, where might it go? There are two overall directions that
appear to be emerging, and each has advocates and detractors.
Whether (or indeed if) one attains dominance will depend upon
the intersection of many forces.
