Manage Agile (Berlin): What’s the Value of Agile?
October 5, 2015 - October 8, 2015
Agile contributes positively towards the financial performance of the organisation through its ability to deliver value early and often. However, achieving these benefits and ensuring their recognition requires an adaptive and incremental approach to financial planning as well as a proper understanding of what constitutes profit. This talk clarifies the dynamics behind agile financial performance, explains how agile budgeting works, shows how to measure value and looks at practical measures to manage financial risk. This enables you as an agile practitioner to clearly articulate the benefits of Agile in language that even your CFO gets!
Relevance for management: The management of finances in projects belongs to the core competencies of managers. In the agile context, managers must learn how their management of projects affects the bottom line of the organisation and what matters they must attend to if they are to achieve superior financial results. Finally, finances are inherently linked to a wide range of other matters within the organisation that require the attention of the agile manager (e.g., risk management) if they are to avoid some of the common pitfalls of project performance management.
