On 7 July 2017, we held an Agile Summit with our corporate partners, government bodies and key stakeholders to start the process of shaping our position on agile project management in the wider context of professional project delivery.
Stimulated by input from practitioners and interested parties from the wide range of sectors who attended the event, this report aims to lay out key themes that drew a consensus. The event sought to focus on agile project management applied other than to ‘pure’ software development, and this discussion paper deliberately avoids the use of agile taxonomy. As the event was carried out under terms of full confidentiality, the specific detail of contributions is not being disclosed.
All the examples shared at the event were of cases where agile project teams were assembled from inside the organisation concerned with internal clients. We encourage all those interested in how agile might impact their work and business to use this document to help inform debate within their organisations and networks.
