Agile project manager Interview Questions

"When hiring agile project managers, companies will look for candidates who can coordinate the iterative and incremental teamwork-based processes needed to manage projects with an agile rather than traditional management approach. Before attending an interview, prepare to explain how you plan to promote teamwork and collaboration among project members, work closely with everyone on a project to ensure all members remain informed, and adjust projects on-the-fly to accommodate frequent changes in expectations as a project moves along in the development process."

For the second question, I'd probably use either a cost/schedule variance chart... since you can't assume the same budget or schedule for any of the projects, variance against plan would likely be the best way to go. Less
