Why the Agile Approach to Project Management?
The ISO 9000 view of quality, which is ‘achieving customer satisfaction and meeting product requirements’, fits perfectly with the Agile approach to project management. The Agile processes and techniques help to ensure that what is produced meets the users need. Agile has been recognised as an appropriate project management approach for ISO nine thousand and one accreditation. Delta Digital is a registered member of the Agile Business Consortium.
We can help engage users and stakeholder with:
- Facilitated Workshops
- collaborative planning
- regular reviews
The Foundation phase, the use of MoSCoW prioritisation and having business roles as part of the Solution Development Team can help to ensure proper consideration of requirements from the outset. Facilitated workshops, stand-ups, ongoing and focussed user involvement, modelling and Timeboxing helps to ensure the right people are involved at the right time. Timeboxing, MoSCoW prioritisation, regular review sessions and the involvement of the business roles as part of the solution development team, all contribute to evolving the solution according to the business need.Ongoing and independent testing, regular review sessions and defined product quality and acceptance criteria all contribute to validating the solution against the requirements. Compared to standard “audit” style quality management processes in more traditional projects, Agile presents a simple but pragmatic approach.
