Business case for Scrum

Agile has become a common area of discussion regarding our choices for how work gets done.  Some of the skeptical questions about using agile approaches have been replaced with assumptions that we should all be moving towards greater agility.  Some very good reasons for moving to agile include things like increased visibility, early learning, frequent deliver of product features, etc.  But what's the cost of such a change?  What are the financial arguments that would drive us towards changing the organization?

 

 

During this presentation we will not give you a formula to answer these questions, but we will explore the business case that should be considered in your particular organization when moving to agile.  We'll start with the expectation of having teams deliver completed pieces of product functionality with each iteration and the cost to get us there.  Then, we'll discuss the early delivery financial opportunities we hope to create.

Peter is an IT professional with 26 years of experience in application development and IT leadership.  He is also a Project Management Professional(Certified by PMI) and a Certified ScrumMaster Trainer.  His ability to contribute across a wide range of environments environments has taken him to companies such as Hilton, Cisco, and AOL, and to various countries such as India, Israel, and China.  An active and contributing member to both the PMI and the Scrum Alliance, Peter’s speaking engagements focus on bridging the gap between traditional Project Management and Agile Project Management. His goal is to help others understand how to get the best return from any project by achieving higher levels of software quality, increased customer satisfaction, and cohesive teams that enjoy increased productivity.
