Beyond Scope, Schedule, and Cost: Rethinking Performance

by Jim Highsmith

Agile teams are asked to be agile, flexible, and adaptive, but then are told to conform to planned scope, schedule, and cost goals. They are asked to adapt, but inside a very small box. If we are to scale agility to large projects and bring agile values to organizations, then we must change performance measures. To mirror the Agile Manifesto, it's not that scope, schedule, and cost are unimportant, but that value and quality are more important. This talk explores the necessity for and the rationale behind moving to this new set of agile performance measures

We often have questions about relating traditional PM practices to Agile practices. This is especially true in the area of risk. In this one hour webinar, Greg will cover traditional risk management techniques and contrast them to the Agile risk management practices. Areas covered include BURP (Big Upfront Risk Planning), daily risk management, and team involvement in risk identification. You will learn how to use traditional risk management in harmony with an Agile lifecycle and how to perform risk management at a level that minimizes waste and over-planning.

Starting with an explanation of what it means to be Agile, we'll then move through an overview of the specific Agile practice of Scrum, we will explore how working in a government contract environment is different from other forms of work and how, if at all, Agile practices can be applied. Some of these differences we'll discuss include documentation expectations, projects that are not restricted to software development, and Earned Value Management. We'll also review some of the developments in government agencies leaning towards agile practices, and reserve time for question.
