Scrum and other agile methods tell us how to efficiently execute highly-complex or high-change projects; however, most fail to give guidance on how to effectively steer a project through the various stages of pre-initiation reviews and funding approvals. This offering helps you estimate an agile project business case and plan your agile project at the right level of detail to get it through your project funding approval process, while still maintaining a quick, lightweight approach. Get help from an expert in making agile work in large enterprises.
Once your agile project’s business case is approved, you’ll need to get some form of agreement in place between the business sponsor and the delivery team. This might be a formal contract between two companies, or it may be a less formal document of understanding (DOU) between two departments in the same organization. This offering gets you expert help to build your agile contract — either time and materials or fixed price — to minimize your risk while still giving the sponsor the flexibility desired from an agile approach.
Agile projects use different metrics and reporting techniques than traditional project management approaches. As a result, PMOs and risk managers have a difficult time assessing whether an agile project is healthy or if there are early warning signs that it is getting into trouble. This offering brings in an expert assessor to review your agile project and let you know if your project is agile... or fragile.
