The paper "Agile Project Management Framework" is an outstanding example of management coursework.   The achievements of much software are being hindered by the nature of software architecture. Some of the various qualities attributes which include security, maintainability, and performance can only be enhanced through the improvement of the software architect (Hussain, Slany & Holzinger 2012). There are several methods that have been developed by scholars to support software architecture analysis. It should be noted that these architecture have several commonalities among them. Some of the commonalities include artifacts, activities, and stakeholders involved in the project.

Since among all the methods, there is no clear cut on which of them is the best, it is very important to have an objective approach in choosing the method. In order to address this issue, a more comprehensive approach needs to be taken, in comparing the agile project and PRINCE2. We are going to use the two project management framework, that is; Agile project management Prince2 project management The agile project management framework Agile development refers to a group of methods that challenges the traditional linear based approach to the development of software (Turk, France & Rumpe 2014).

Though it is a software development approach, the method can be incorporated into the lifecycle of information technology project management (Ambler 2012).   Scrum is one of the lightweight process frameworks to be used in this discussion. This framework is commonly applied in conjunction with agile methods. It can be used as a lightweight framework to help in the execution phase of the project(Turk, France & Rumpe, 2014). It usually works well on projects that include the application of software development.

One of the merits of using this framework is that it works quicker and adapts quickly to changing designs. It works in modules which are called sprint where team members have a specific time period to work on the suggested functionality with a more solidified set of requests. In this framework, sprints are normally supplemented by daily and weekly status meetings (Ambler, 2012).
