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