The vaguer the requirements, the more changeable the framework conditions and the harder it is to plan tasks in a company (and the more complex they are), the more limited in scope conventional project management is. This requires approaches that can cope with the increasing complexity and the unpredictability this brings with it, and one of these is agile working. This will help react to changing market requirements and customer demands faster.
