Achieving the Right Amount of Agility for Hybrid Projects
Is Every project an Agile project? The answer is very, very clear: NO.
However, there is real confusion when your project is a kind of hybrid. What are we supposed to do in this case? This is a real problem for project managers and others who must address the work. What is needed is a series of questions... key questions... questions whose answers reveal the requisite agility needed.
The exact right amount of Agility is all you need! No more, no less. Every hybrid project needs to be scored in this way.
Attend this session and discover a way to measure the right amount of Agility for your hybrid projects.
Key learning takeaways:
* Overview of a new Agility Gauge
* Learn to determine the right amount of Agility for your project, team and environment using this gauge
* Learn about tools and methods we can use today to address hybrid projects
"Agility is not an end unto itself. Therefore, Agility is not a capability that should be maximized. The capability to be agile (agility potential) and actual reactions to changes (manifest agility) both involve costs. These costs can be justified only by the nature of the challenge. The appropriate amount of agility to seek, requisite agility, is a level that balances the costs of attaining it with the consequences of not having it, given the situation. Thus, requisite agility, not unlimited Agility, should be the goal."
-David Alperts, Command and Control research project, USA Dept of Defense.
