In today’s world of fast paced technology and continually changing requirements and project scope, the need for Agile Project Management has greatly increased. Responding to this demand, the PMI® (Project Management Institute) launched a new certification, the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)SM. The result of this fast growing certification is the creation of a new space where Project Management and Agile Practices for Software Development meet. This calls us to ask where do standard critical project management methodologies like Risk Management fit into Agile Practices.
This presentation details the methodology of Risk Management as it applies to Agile Project Management. It engages in the steps of Risk Management including: identifying, assessing and managing risks, while mapping these to Agile Practices. Most Project Managers are familiar with Risk Management and Agile, but how do these methodologies relate, and how can we use them to manage resources and do more with less on our projects?
What is Agile Project Management and when does it make sense to use it? How Risk Management relates to Agile and how it is incorporated into Agile Practices will be evaluated. Recommendations for implementing Agile Risk Management will be provided along with best practices and how organizations are putting this into practice.
Risk Management is not only a practice and discipline, it is an Art. Knowing the tools of techniques is not sufficient for success. The nuances of how Risk management is incorporated into agile practices are what generate project success. When requirements and environmental conditions are in flux, our ability to anticipate Risk and plan for it is critical to managing projects with agility.
