The Agile Enterprise: Hybrid Projects - What Does it Mean? A Review of Hybrid Frameworks

Jan 24, 2020 9:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Although many practitioners believe that Agile started in software development, Agility started long before the publication of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development (aka Agile Manifesto) at the Enterprise level. Started as an alternative to planned frameworks, in particular as an alternative to the process standardization imposed by Lean Six Sigma, Agile is seen by the Project Management community as 'the future.’ However, none of the Agile frameworks was developed as a generic Project Management approach. Most, if not all, of them originated as software delivery framework with the 'developer' role as the core of an Agile Team.

Perceived by many teams as useless red tape and one of the major impediments for Agile adoption, correct governance can have a very positive impact on in the Agile Enterprise. Rather than being a micromanagement tool, governance can provide visibility on the benefits of Agile adoption as well as creating an environment of trust and collaboration.

The Agile Enterprise: Managing Financial Aspects in Agile Projects

January 10, 2020 | 59:56 | Views: 2,057 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.48 / 5

Agile is sometimes introduced as a cheaper way of delivering projects, products, and services. Unlike the traditional approach of measuring the value delivered based on the planned deliverables, the budget spent, and meeting the critical milestones, Agile doesn't and shouldn't track the delivery in the same way. Agile is a new approach, and traditional project finance management may not be relevant or can become an impediment to agility. Agile is or should be based on trust, and in an Agile organization, most of the financial planning and reporting should not be necessary. However, very few organizations have the necessary conditions to abolish tight financial management. This webinar will propose a few financial management approaches for Agile projects, highlighting the necessity as well as the challenges of each of the proposed models.

Requirements in Agile

white paper
by Joy Beatty Candase Hokanson

When companies move to an agile Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), they often remove the processes and analysis of their waterfall SDLC because, as the Agile Manifesto puts it, “They value individual and interactions over processes and tools.” Some of the rigor should be removed – waterfall processes can get bogged down with gates and sign-offs. However, caution must be exercised to not go too far against processes and analysis and rely just upon backlogs and user stories. Requirements and the analysis that leads to those requirements are just as essential in an agile project as they are in a waterfall project. The difference lies in how much requirements analysis is completed and the timing of it.
