  abstract     = {Agile Project Management (Agile PM), coupled with the DevOps concept, has been worked out as a fundamental approach in a highly uncertain and unpredictable environment to achieve mature software development and to efficiently support concurrent operation*. At the European XFEL**, Agile PM and DevOps have been applied to provide adaptability and efficiency in the development and operation of its control system: Karabo***. In this context, the Control and Analysis Software Group (CAS) has developed in-house a management platform composed of the following macro-artefacts: (1) Agile Process; (2) Release Planning; (3) Testing Infrastructure; (4) Roll-out and Deployment Strategy; (5) Automated tools for Monitoring Control Points (i.e. Configuration Items****) and; (6) Incident Management*****. The software engineering management platform is also integrated with User Relationship Management to establish and maintain a proper feedback loop with our scientists who set up the requirements. This article aims to briefly describe the above points and show how agile project management has guided the software strategy, development and operation of the Karabo control system at the European XFEL.},
