Agile Overview

2022: Building a Culture of Agile Governance. Louise Gardner.

Organisations and ways of working are changing and adapting faster than ever before. The way we provide oversight and governance to projects is also being forced to change. How do make sure our program and project governance is fit for purpose in this new world? Robust, yet agile enough to support quick decision making. Detailed, but not bureaucratic. This presentation seeks to address some of the key factors in deciding how 'agile' project governance should be, and explores some of cultural elements that may be the key to picking the right point on the agile governance spectrum.

Controlling Agile

2022 Keynote: Integrating Project controls with Agile development. Gordon Kranz.

The pace of technology deployment is offering new opportunities and challenges for both commercial and government organizations. Commercial companies are trying to stay ahead of the competition, and government organizations adapting to the changing global economy and threats. Agile development methods are providing mechanisms to address these emergent and everchanging problems. We will discuss issues project controls professionals have with defining a baseline plan and tracking progress on Agile projects. Agile is a disciplined set of methods that should offer transparency with planning, status, and program objectives. If Agile methods are done correctly the plan, progress, and retrospective is clear. Understanding and mapping Agile methods and artifacts to traditional project controls is critical to being able to manage Agile programs.

Controlling Agile, 2019, Patrick Weaver. 

Is choosing an agile development methodology an invitation to anarchy?

Agile is now a core component of the PMBOK® Guide and Practice Standard for Scheduling 3rd Ed. Based on these standards (and others) Patrick Weaver will look at the interface between Agile and 'traditional controls'.
