The Myths and Facts About Faster Software Delivery Using Agile Webinar by EITAGlobal
Overview: Join noted author and agile project management expert Kevin Aguanno as he explains the misconceptions and the underlying truths about faster software delivery using agile methods and uncovers the preconditions to achieving speed. Along the way he will discuss the more easily achievable benefits of agile and how speed comes with higher levels of agile maturity.
Why Should You Attend: When asking people why they want to use agile delivery methods, one of the most common reasons I hear is that they want to "deliver faster." It seems that there is a widespread frustration with the way administrative bureaucracy, inefficient development processes, and overburdening governance processes impede project performance. In many cases, an apparently simple, short development project cannot be delivered quickly because of the process and governance overheads that stretch the project out across the calendar and act as a multiplier on the estimated project budget.
Of course, project sponsors are frustrated with this situation - I'd be frustrated too. Needless red tape slowing down a project is a liability that should be rooted out and eradicated within our organizations. The problem, however, is that agile methods are not about delivering faster; rather, their benefits are in other areas.
