The topic I identified was: "Scope Management in Agile Project Management". Explores strategic approaches to managing project boundaries and deliverables within an agile framework. Agile methodologies are critical in today's fast-paced project environment because of their focus on flexibility, iterative schedules, and stakeholder engagement. These principles enable projects to adapt quickly to changes and ensure that project scope aligns with client needs and market demands, thereby increasing project relevance and success. This article highlights the importance of agile in promoting responsive and customer-focused project management strategies.

For this week reference,I looked up the following:

The first article introduces the Agile Plus Approach, focusing on improving project scope, time, and cost management by blending agile methodologies with traditional project management practices. This innovative approach seeks to combine the best of both worlds: the adaptability and rapid response capabilities of agile methods with the structured and comprehensive planning aspects of traditional management. This hybrid model aims to address common project management challenges more effectively, offering insights into achieving greater efficiency and success in project delivery.

The second article examines the implementation of Management 3.0, focusing on its consistency and the conditions necessary for its successful adoption within organizations(Piwowar-Sulej et al., 2022). The study explores how Management 3.0, as an innovative management framework, aligns with contemporary organizational needs and identifies key factors that influence its effectiveness in promoting organizational change and agility. Through this analysis, the article contributes to understanding how modern management practices can be integrated to enhance organizational dynamics and performance.

The third article by Mathiyazhagan et al. (2021) delves into the amalgamation of lean and agile practices to advance sustainability in Indian manufacturing sectors, aiming at global sustainability targets. This integration is scrutinized for its potential to amalgamate lean's waste minimization principles with agile's responsiveness, providing a strategic framework for industries to enhance operational efficiency and environmental sustainability concurrently.

Ferreira and Nobre (2022) examine agile project management through the lens of dynamic capabilities, proposing that agile methodologies enable organizations to adapt to and capitalize on rapidly changing environments. Their study contributes to the understanding of how agile practices enhance a firm's responsiveness, innovation, and competitive advantage in volatile markets.

The fifth article expressed that Miranda et al. (2023) investigate project management practices in Portugal, leveraging insights from the Portuguese Project Management Observatory. Their study sheds light on the local project management landscape, pinpointing prevailing trends and challenges, thereby offering a valuable perspective on how these practices compare and contribute to global project management methodologies.
