The flexibility and versatility offered by the agile framework allow it to be used for day to day operations and functioning of non-technical teams just as effectively. The truly agile development teams tend to grow rapidly due to the growing success of agile practices and the increasing demands of the customers.

Your understanding of agile project management and software development life cycle will improve drastically and you will be poised to successfully manage your software and non-software projects by delivering high quality product in a timely and efficient manner!
