Agile project management outlines adaptable tasks that are flexible based on the needs of the project and evolving circumstances . The team plays a large role in Agile, and the project’s tasks or conditions often change, and the project team produces more frequent deliverables . After every sprint, teams reflect and look back to see if there was anything that could be improved so they can adjust their strategy for the next sprint .
