Successful agile projects are characterised by rapid, value-driven, iterative change cycles – and good project assurance, the latest guide from APM explains.
A Guide to Assurance of Agile Delivery shows how undertaking traditional assurance reviews can be adapted and adopted to ensure assurance activity of agile projects is both effective and valuable.
Written by the APM Assurance Specific Interest Group (SIG), the guide supports experienced assurance professionals who may be undertaking assurance of their first agile project.
The authors say: “This guide has been compiled in order to support those professionals in gaining an understanding of the ‘high level’ basics of agile, the differences in approach required to undertake effective assurance activity along with pointers to specific areas to look out for when conducting assurance reviews.”
