Projects and Organizations management using agile methodologies: Study of its application to the Armada Logistics

The goal of this project is to make a detailed analysis on agile methodologies and to study the possibility of applying these practices to the Armada Logistics. As an introduction to this project, we have analyzed the importance that project management has in the development of products and services, and what impact do methodologies have on the development of these projects. To have a better understanding we have made a general view of the PMBOK way of delivering projects. Methodologies have always been important to organizations. Having this understood, we move on to analyze traditional methodologies, which have been around for many years and have proved to succeed in many project areas. However, these practices seem to have flaws in adapting to environments of complexity that emerge as technology develops. The study and understanding of agile methodologies through Scrum, Kanban, and Scrumban practices, helps us realize how these upcoming procedures solve the problems that traditional methodologies couldn’t face. For the development of this project and to conclude with our study, we have introduced the Armada Logistic Organization, analyzing its principles, area of work, and procedures or methodologies that they are implementing right now. Once the facts are set, we try to match agile thinking and practices (Scrum, Kanban, Lean thinking) to Logistical activities. This study shows how agile methodologies can be the solution for volatile environments both in civil and military organizations.
