Join Doug Rose for an in-depth discussion in this video What types of projects should use agile?, part of Agile at Work: Reporting with Agile Charts and Boards.

So they might release a new version…that has a lot more functionality…in it while you're in the middle…of your project, and you'll want…to take advantage of that new functionality…so that you can get that in your product release.…The same with creative.…You might be working on some sort…of creative project, have some presentation…or something like that, and then something might…happen in the news, or there might…be some change, or there might…be something interesting that happens…that you can roll into your creative deliverable.…
