APM National Conference for Women in Project Management 2018, Susan Clarke

  1. INTRODUCTION Agile is gaining in popularity because:  Business operational drivers mean projects must adapt as often changes can’t wait until the end of the project, and there is a need to avoid rework and wasted effort  An Agile approach of frequent small deliveries coupled with a more continuous conversation with the customer allows much greater flexibility and delivers results, and therefore benefits, much more quickly.  The whole point of Agile is that customers can decide what they want to have delivered  Teams achieve by ‘learning by doing,’ allowing teams to reflect on their experiences as they go along and adapt accordingly.
  2. PRESTO MANIFESTO PUBLISHED BY DON MCGREAL ON JUNE 25TH, 2009 Timing: 30 mins Aim: Take it back to basics - show how thinking agile can help crate successful projects Activity: Define what success on a project means, e.g. is it only about being on time and on budget? What about customer satisfaction?
  3. THE AGILE MANIFESTO Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage. Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale. Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project. Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done. The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to- face conversation. Working software is the primary measure of progress. Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility. Simplicity — the art of maximizing the amount of work not done — is essential. The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams. At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.
  4. ACTIVITY: HOW COULD YOU MAKE YOUR PROJECT MORE AGILE? Consider the following as a starter:  Environment  Team  Ceremonies  Tools  Techniques
  5. SOME PROJECT MANAGEMENT CONSIDERATIONS Culture – Customer need to really understand their requirements – JFDI, finish what you start – Personal not e-mail – Knowledge not position Clear Vision – Focus on the why, not the how Getting better at estimating is vital – Constant feedback – Real, not over, commitments : keep promises Go iterative for everyone, not just the delivery team Get a great Key user Sell outcomes, not outputs PM is a rolling process, in short bursts Think about who is in the team and who supports outside it Full time team is best! 6
  6. SUMMARY I hope we have understood alignment to the agile manifesto and explored some elements for project success: Self-Organizing Teams  By moving away from silo working, team members are encouraged to use their overlapping skills and work together, which in turn gives them much greater empowerment and satisfaction.  This is much more motivational than the classic 'command and control' approaches Time-Boxing and Requirements Management  Emphasis is on fixing the time and cost but also allowing the plan to evolve  Requirements can be prioritized, with frequent input from a customer representative  Scope creep is controlled easier as the product owner defines the deliverables in a sprint  Estimating gets better… People Engagement  All the different stakeholders within a team work closer together and are empowered to have more say in both what they do and the order of the work..  Have fun!
  7. AND FINALLY…….. Don’t assume that Agile is only relevant to software development, hopefully we have shown that it’s a way of thinking that can be used on any project There is no one right way of organizing and managing an Agile project – take the concept and do what works for your circumstances Just give it a try!
