Agile value management & the budgeting saga
Imagine your business stakeholder has an idea. In a classic approach, you help create a business case, with lots of information that is based on, honestly, assumptions. Because even with the best of intentions and a detailed up front analysis, we cannot exactly predict the future.
In an agile approach, we accept there’s a lot we don’t know up front. So how do we (help) estimate the project? What’s the agile alternative for following up on scope, time and cost? How can we stay in control without sacrificing flexibility and responsiveness to changes? And what is the BA’s role in all this?
Together with Damien, we will discover that agile is not in contradiction with scope management, budgeting and control. Rather, it can lead to more transparency and visibility, and help us get to better business decisions more easily.
