Presentation Focus: Agile Value Delivery Approach:
This presentation identifies a consistent approach to planning and measuring performance for team insight into projects using agile value delivery. Traditionally projects that have fixed requirements and estimate cost and schedule will not use this approach. Typically agile projects have set costs and schedules, however the features become defined through an iterative process of clarity and discover using an agile framework.
Agile value delivery approach consists of the following objectives:
- Provide a measured approach to investments that can vary over time by making continuous flow of value a focus
- Accelerate product delivery with reliable results by engaging customers in frequent interactions and shared ownership
- Enhance ability to manage changing priorities by expecting uncertainty and managing for it though sprints, anticipation, and adaptation
- Enhance product quality by unleashing the creativity and innovation of individuals and creating an environment where they can make a difference
- Increase productivity and boost performance through group accountability for results and shared responsibility for team effectiveness
- Enhance delivery predictability by improving effectiveness and reliability through situational specific strategies, processes, and practices
By meeting these objectives, the project values individuals and interactions over processes and tools, working software over comprehensive documentation, customer collaboration over contract negotiation, and responding to change over following a plan.
