Reading: Project Management Approaches

Fox and Patterson strongly favor the Agile approach to project management in software development and rather strongly pit Agile in opposition to the Plan and Document approaches.  A more moderate comparison of these two major categories is found in this PMI (Project Management Institute) conference paper by Bob  Tarne:  Tarne, B.
