Agile Project Management for Business Transformation SuccesseBook - 2016
This book is intended to provide project management office (PMO) executives practical information to promote enterprise Agile for business value compatibility within their organization. The primary benefit of this book is to promote a sense of common purpose and collaboration between the project delivery and the organization. Agile project delivery methods are adaptable to the emergence of unknown requirements identified in the later part of the project delivery lifecycle. Transparency is improved through the Agile characteristics of continuous feedback loops, daily stand-up meetings, demonstrations, retrospectives, prototypes, and project management tools such as Kanban boards, burn-down charts, and pie chart dashboards. The key success factor is direct business participation and collaboration to ensure that a business focus determines the output. Agile project management delivers business value rather than following a plan by using prioritized backlogs to ensure early and consistent delivery of features and products from the customer perspective without the overhead of low-value artifacts and bureaucracy. The Agile Advantage encourages technology deployment as a paradigm shift rather than a planned incremental improvement to existing systems and processes. Agile promotes innovation and creates synergies through a business focus viewing technology deployments as a catalyst for change rather than the final objective. Technology investments implemented through Agile processes result in improved market leadership, organizational alignment, and resource efficiency delivering competitive advantage.
