I had the chance to visit with Essential Scrum author Ken Rubin at Agile 2014. One of Ken’s primary focuses right now is Agile Risk Management. His presentation “Agile is Risk Management” addresses the fact that if it is applied well, agile will inherently help reduce the risk you would normally see on projects. His approach involves a lightweight way of addressing risk that let’s you reduce your exposure without having to cope with a lot of the heavy machinery that traditional risk management typically involves.
Essential Scrum author Kenny Rubin is at Agile 2013 to give presentations on Strategies for Agile Portfolio Management and the question of Component vs. Feature Teams. Kenny provides some great insights on how organizations can use economic metrics to help companies make better informed choices about how to practice Agile. He also gives an update on the Visual Agile Lexicon.
