Agile is not a new idea, but it is a new reality for every organization. Dedicated and collocated teams are often the standard answers to the question,

User interface design projects: Any project that involves developing the user interface is best suited for agile. Multiple collaborative revisions, A/B testing and quick turnaround often make the user interface better.
