Agile 2017 Conference: Discovering New techniques to Add to your Repertoire

This week I am at the Agile 2017 Conference in Orlando, FL. Each year around 2,500 agile practitioners, speakers, vendors and people just curious about agile gather to share ideas, acquire skills, and see what’s new in the agile world. An element of the conference I love is the sheer diversity of the sessions.

PMI’s Agile Future: A Presentation by Mike Griffiths

2017 marks an important year for embracing agile approaches by the Project Management Institute. What is in store for PMI’s Agile Future?

I will be presenting about “PMI’s Agile Future,” in Rome, May 1-3 at the 2017 PMI® EMEA Congress. 2017 marks an important year for embracing agile approaches by the Project Management Institute. A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) — Sixth Edition, is set to be released in Q3 will have agile accommodation guidance for each of its Knowledge Areas and an Agile Appendix. I wrote these sections with Jesse Fewell and hope they enable practitioners to see how techniques can be tailored for agile environments.

Agile Suitability Filters are tools to help assess if an agile approach could fit your organization and project. As with any subjective diagnostic tool, these methods are not hard-and-fast predictors of suitability or project success.

Use them to have more objective discussions about the use of agile methods and where risks may be present.

Agile approaches, were designed for small, co-located teams who can easily validate product increments via demos and discussions.

Agile Approaches in agile projects

This post is a follow-up to my Agile DNA webinar I hosted a little over a month ago. This was my first webinar for RMC and we had a great interest with over 2,000 people registering for the event interested in Agile approaches in agile projects. The recording is now available, see below for details on how to access it. The webinar was entitled “Agile DNA, the People and Process Elements of Successful Agile Projects” and the DNA theme came from the twin strands of People and Process guidance that run through all agile approaches in agile projects and make agile uniquely what it is.
