Working in a Sustainable Pace | Ben Linders | AgilePM | Scoop.it

Agile and The Enterprise: Part 1

Agile and The Enterprise: Part 1 | AgilePM | Scoop.it

Making the move from traditional waterfall software planning, development and testing models to an Agile approach brings a set of process and culture challenges. The most obvious ones are on the development team that has to embrace Scrum, XP, or another variant of Agile development. But less talked about is the positive but possibly challenging impact that the wider organization should feel. A good Agile implementation can and should reveal challenges and shortcomings on other teams in the enterprise. Addressing these issues promises a stronger company and a better product.

What we've learnt about scaling agile

What we've learnt about scaling agile | AgilePM | Scoop.it

Well, we did it! We delivered GOV.UK. It was big and hairy and we did it by being agile.  The benefits are clear: Warning: This is a slightly geeky post about agile - the methodology we use to deliver our projects. It therefore features quite a lot of terminology. We hope this will be useful for those of you building projects like these

Integrating UX design into a DSDM project | DSDM CONSORTiUM

Integrating UX design into a DSDM project | DSDM CONSORTiUM | AgilePM | Scoop.it

Integrating user experience (UX) design into agile working is a challenge faced by many agile teams, not just those using DSDM. Although the work of UX designers and developers complements each other, the different goals, processes and working practices of developers and UX designers pose challenges in practice.


This white paper presents a chapter from the story of one organization’s journey to integrate UX design into the DSDM framework. It describes the difficulties they faced, working practices adopted and the lessons learned from their experiences of integrating UX designers into their DSDM agile process.

Using Process Improvement for Repeatable Results with Agile

Using Process Improvement for Repeatable Results with Agile | AgilePM | Scoop.it
The agile manifesto values individuals and interactions over processes and tools. The primary focus of the CMMI is process improvement. Doesn't that collide when an organization, who is used to doing process improvement, wants to adopt an agile mindset and culture?

Interesting article if you are interested in CMMI and Agile and if they embrace or collide with each other!

#Agile PMO - A new hope #PMOT | AgilePM | Scoop.it
On my most recent project, I have had the good fortune to be asked to help to lead the Project Management Office. (PMO) There had been multiple leads of the PMO before, but each one was not able to provide all the information that the senior stakeholders were asking for. Given my background in Agile, I was very interested in how I could create a PMO that was lean and focused on value as much as possible.

Thinking about interacting with the customer at the start of the project? Who would argue against that? Well, it depends on what you call it. It also depends on whether you then do it without the benefit of the rest of the project team.

Yes! This up-front thinking is often skipped in Agile shops. Understanding the problem is essential, and one reason why Business Analysts need to report through the Business, not through IT.
