In this webinar, Barbara Roberts highlighted the basic differences between a traditional (linear) style project and an agile style. This webinar was held on 24 February 2022.

Barbara explained how agile drives different behaviours, and therefore poses a different set of risks. Barbara demonstrated an agile risk assessment, as well as sharing examples from her own experiences of some key agile project risks.


Barbara Roberts - Agile Transformation Coach

Barbara Roberts has been actively involved in Agile from its inception. Barbara is a signatory of the Agnostic Agile Oath, and believes strongly that choosing the right agile approach, or combination of agile approaches is a key factor for success. She has published a white paper “Agile Wars and How to Avoid Them” to support this viewpoint. She was an early adopter for one of the first agile methods, DSDM, which was developed based on the UK complex corporate environment. She was also a director of the Agile Business Consortium (previously known as the DSDM Consortium) for over 20 years.

Creation of Agile Project Management (AgilePM) was Barbara’s original idea, and since its launch this has surpassed 200,000 exams. Barbara is well-known for her pragmatic, common-sense approach to agile, and has led many successful agile transformations with organisations from all business sectors, often in highly regulated environments.

Barbara continues to drive the effective use of agile in the complex corporate arena, most recently leading the team creating Agile Portfolio Management (AgilePfM).

Barbara has very kindly allowed her presented material to be made available for viewing. The slides on Slideshare and the webinar recording on YouTube is now available in our APM resources area and also embedded below for reference.
