Chaos: a new perspective on agile governance: can we turn unpredictability to our advantage?

Save for later


Over the past few years the APM Governance SIG has been at the forefront of developing new thinking on governance, for example we have published guides – Directing Change, Co-Directing Change, Sponsoring Change. In recent discussions around specific high profile projects, practitioners have explained how organisations have struggled to apply traditional approaches, methods and controls to the growing number of Agile projects. It is therefore the ambition of the GovSIG to develop guidance for the agile governance of agile projects / portfolios.

SIG members came together on 14th May in London to explore the governance lessons from Agile projects to date and to set the framework for developing guidance for the governance of Agile projects. There was a short presentation to set the scene and then a workshop session which was led by Brian Wernham and Martin Samphire. Brian Wernham is author of the book “Agile Project Management for Government”.
