The Agile approach advocates the notion that the project team should create the project plan rather than the project manager. The methology works closely with the customer or the end user throughout and focuses on evolving solutions to problems. The close relationship with the customer means that these consequences can be discussed at an early stage in order to continually reflect their needs, both in terms of work-ability and possible cost/ budget implications.
