APM has published its first ‘how to’ agile guide. 

Directing Agile Change, by APM’s Governance SIG, is the latest title in the successful Change series of publications.

This latest edition – written by SIG members Brian Wernham, Adrian Pyne, Roger Garrini and Martin Samphire – focuses on the governance of agile projects and other change initiatives in business.

 “There is a need for a different governance response to match agile approaches,” wrote Jennifer Stapleton, consultant, agile management evangelist and author of the guide’s foreword. “Some proponents suggest that agile avoids the need for discipline, documentation and governance. This guide strongly suggests the opposite.”

Like its predecessors –Co-Directing Change, Sponsoring Change and Directing Change – the guide is aimed at board members, sponsors and other senior executives.

It includes core principles, checklists and key questions to ask.

Chapter 3, When to adopt an agile approach, explores the different options, including a hybrid approach, which consists of both agile and more traditional project management components.

Chapter 5 includes a set of Governance guidance lists, which seek to remove the mystique surrounding agile and enable anyone involved in a key governance role to ask appropriate questions.

At 36 pages Directing Agile Change meets its early objective as a ‘slim’ guide for project professionals, making it easy to read and digest.

Directing Agile Change is available to buy for £15; APM members can claim a 10 per cent discount by calling Turpin Distribution on +44 (0)1767 604951.
