Mention the word ‘agile’ and often the word ‘Scrum’ enters the conversation.

What is it that makes a project successful? Is it if the project comes in on time and on budget? If the product is built within scope?

I recently invited the team at PM-Partners to review our company values. I did this so we can collectively acknowledge that these values are at the core of our decision making - the way we interact with each other and the way we network.
