Time Tracking: Is It Still Relevant in an Agile Environment?

The widespread adoption of Agile development methodologies over the past decade indicates a new direction in project management. Agile’s lightweight framework – designed for rapid delivery and evolving functionality – has curtailed preference for the traditional waterfall approach and opened up new possibilities for project-oriented businesses. Though these methods are not inherently new to project management, Agile repackages and reprioritizes practical processes to create a highly effective and streamlined approach to project management.

Agile teams are responsible for constantly assessing how much of a project they have already completed, where the project is headed, and how their to-date investment substantiates future work. Time tracking guides this complex project analysis and enables teams and organizations to effectively complete projects with intelligent foresight. Though the methodologies may be newly packaged, time reporting remains as crucial to Agile development as it does every other form of project-based work.
