As agile software development gains awareness and popularity in the software industry, it also continues to capture the interest of the research community. There are several topics within the agile software development area that demand deeper understanding and research. One such topic is 'Agile project management' which relates to the management of software projects that are developed using various agile frameworks such as eXtreme Programming (XP) and scrum. This paper outlines proposed research on agile project management. In particular the authors hope to explore the role of the project manager, the process and problems of transitioning into an agile framework and the management of outsourced agile projects.
