Today, when businessmen and scientists aspire to reach the absolute efficiency in everything, the Project Management Agile methodology becomes more and more worth of attention for using them and further development (improving these methods and adapting them to work in new industries and circumstances). Actually, the Agile approach can be effectively and productively used almost everywhere it is necessary to follow the principles of flexibility of work and schedule, such as on projects with a high allowance of risks, or to better the client’s satisfaction rate (when the requirements are quite loose); for example Scrum is usually applied in software development (but when adapted can be also used in any other industry), as creating software products is usually associated with a need to work with the project’s customers closely to continually clarify their requirements and vision, and also to handle a big number of revisions. In order to organize a working process well, special agile trainings need to be provided to project team members, and also agile software can be used to facilitate managerial efforts.
