Managing projects is inherently challenging. Trying to manage projects with a one-size-fits-all approach only complicates that challenge. Iterative Project Management was developed to help project managers overcome these issues by giving them another methodology with which to approach project success. Specifically, Iterative processes provide a way to segment large project objectives while at the same time proving the project manager with the ability to minimize project risks early in the project life cycle. By effectively identifying and engaging project risks as soon as possible, the project significantly increases its chances of delivering releases on-time and on-budget.
