In this assignment, you must read and analyze the following academic journal article, which is available through the UMUC Library: Gonzalez, W. (2014). Applying Agile Project Management to Predevelopment Stages of Innovation. International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, 11(04), 1450020. doi:10.1142/s0219877014500205 1. Why do you think that traditional project management approaches are believed to inhibit innovation? 2. What risks may exist when adopting an agile project management approach for managing early stages of innovation, and what mitigation measures would you propose? 3. Do you agree or disagree with the author’s conclusion, and why? Your summary analysis should be around 500 words* in length, and then you will need to respond to the above questions. Please provide substantive responses to the above questions, but I am not requiring any specific word length for that portion. *Note: I am primarily concerned with how well you understood and analyzed the article, so length is only a guideline.
