Agile: Way Out of the Box

 

Synopsis: 

Peter Drucker wrote about “The futures that have already happened”. He was referring to trends in corporate economics and explained that he was not predicting the future but rather reporting results as observed within the trends.

Well it’s happened again; the future is here! Agile is out of the box and is no longer an arcane idea restricted to a radical cohort of software developers who claim to finally have the answer to on-time and on-budget project performance. The wide acceptance of Agile methodologies is evidenced by the Project Management Institute (PMI) offering an Agile-based certification and the inclusion of Agile methodologies as a valid alternative on Federal contracts.

The major principle in Agile is to be able to deal proactively with continuously evolving inputs and goals. As requirements are amended, added, and updated, so must the project baseline be amended and updated. This presentation is about agility within the entire project management process and is independent of the selected project development lifecycle. Is there an area of project management where we should not be agile? Can Agile principles be applied in your environment? Let’s discuss!
