Agile project management – everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask
24 May 2016
May 24, 2016
As agile becomes more and more the methodology of choice, many organisations are implementing their take on it! This session looks at those questions employees want to ask but can’t
To avoid the rocky road with agile, there is a need for iterative working, having a clear picture, good leadership and a strong focus on delivery. A good agile project has a project manager who is adaptable, flexible, and collaborative, has clear prioritised requirements, lean decision making, enough documentation, looks ahead and continuously plans and learns.
Successful implementation of agile must be done as a major change programme, driven by senior leaders who understand the value that agile offers. Adaptation is needed to processes, tools and most importantly people and their behaviours.
To be successful agile has to start with your own professionalism and how your behaviours match the agile principles, including trust and self empowered teams.
Adrian is a consultant who’s practice for more than 20 years was the delivery or rescue of change programmes and the design, build, operation of portfolio, programme and project management capability. Starting in telecoms he has worked in commercial and public sectors: e.g. investment/retail finance, central & local government, diversity, nano & energy technologies and mining.
Adrian is a visiting lecturer at Nottingham & Kingston University Business Schools. He has always specialised in and championed the people aspects of our profession, notably stakeholder management and behaviour. In recent years much of his practice has focussed on developing cultures and organisations in which programmes and projects can thrive and not merely survive. Adrian has been a long time contributor to the APM, especially within ProgM, e.g. the BoK 6 refresh. He is a frequent speaker, in the UK and internationally, and is co-author of the Gower Handbook of Programme Management. Adrian is RPP certified and an RPP Assessor.
The presentation will be followed by a short additional presentation on Allstate’s agile transformation journey.
This event is suitable for professionals with any level of experience.
