3 1. Agile: some false friends! Agile doesn t mean: 1. No rules 2. No planning 3. No monitoring & controlling 4. Creativity, an end in itself 5. Cheap by definition Spend your money in a different way, hoping to spend less for more! L aggettivo "Agile" nel vocabolario della lingua italiana, presenta diverse definizioni: che si muove con scioltezza e disinvoltura; svelto, elastico; snello, flessuoso e, per estensione, lieve, leggero; (fig.) vivace, pronto; acuto, duttile.

4 1. What is agility? Agility is the capability to balance: Stability with Flexibility, Order with Caos ( Chaordic by Dee Hock 1999), Planning with Execution, Control with speed, to deliver customer value reliably in the face of uncertainty and change (Sanjiv Augustine, 2005).

5 1. What is a project? TPM - Traditional Project Management APM - Agile Project Management A temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service or result (PMBOK, 2008). A special kind of localized energy (comprising thoughts, emotions and interactions). A complex, high speed, self-correcting venture during which people interact in search of a desirable result under conditions of high uncertainty, high change and high stress (Doug DeCarlo, 2004). Content - Result Context - Process

6 1. What is project management? TPM - Traditional Project Management The application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements (PMBOK, 2008). APM - Agile Project Management The art and science of facilitating and managing the flow of thoughts, emotions and interactions, in a way that produces value outcomes under turbolent and complex conditions (Doug DeCarlo 2004). The work of energizing, empowering and enabling project teams to rapidly and reliably deliver business value by engaging customers and continuously learning and adapting to their changing needs and environments (Sanjiv Augustine, 2005).

7 1. Which kind of music? TPM Symphony Orchestra APM Jazz band

8 1. Which kind of race? TPM 10 Km Race APM Timed Race You know exactly how far away the finish line is, and your goal is to reach it as quickly as possible (focus on scope) Reference: Mike Cohn Agile estimating and planning 2006 Run as far as possible in sixty minutes. You know when you will finish but not what you will deliver (focus on time)

9 1. Which kind of mind-set (*)? TPM Newtonian Mind-set (cause-and-effect principle) 1. Stability is the norm 2. The world is linear and predictable 3. It s controllable 4. We can minimize change 5. Add rigor to the process to increase the feeling of security APM Quantum Mind-set (uncertainty principle) 1. Chaos is the norm 2. Uncertainty reigns 3. Murphy s law rules 4. We should welcome change 5. Relax controls to increase the feeling of security Adaptability over Predictability (*) Mind-set: a set of beliefs and assumptions about how the world works Reference: Doug DeCarlo Extreme Project Management 2004

10 1. Which management style? TPM Newtonian style Element APM Quantum style Deliver on the planned result Use the plan to drive results Aim, aim, fire Keep tight control on the process Establish stronger procedures and policies I correct the original baseline Taskmaster My job, as a PM, is to: The best way to do this is: My prefered approach is to: I always try to: When things start to slip out of control: When the project goes off course: I see me role as a: Discover the desired result Use result to drive planning Fire, than redirect the bullet Keep the process loose About leading I correct what is possible Relationship manager Gets it right the first time A successful project: Gets it right the last time Reference: Doug DeCarlo Extreme Project Management 2004

11 1. Are you agile? 50 points = agile maven; 40-49= agilist all the way; 30-39= agilist in training; 20-29=closet agile; 10-19= thanks for taking the test! Reference:

12 1. When to apply APM? Stress (customer value through personal engagement) Uncertainty (known unknowns); Unpredictability (unknown unknowns) Messiness (chaos) to projects with high levels of Change (environmental conditions, business needs, project requirements) Innovation (process and/or product) Speed (quickness, rapidity)

13 1. CSFs to apply APM 1. Shared Vision 2. Co-located team 3. Customer representative on-site (daily interaction) 4. Self disciplinated Team Players (Generalizing Specialist is jack-of-all-trades and master of a few) 5. Real-time communications 6. Flexible organization (CAS Complex Adaptive System; many small groups, strongly related) 7. Product Modularity (joining together standardized units to form larger compositions) 8. Product Scalability (minimal set < > full set)

15 2. MANIFESTO of Agile Software Development Alliance, Core Values: We are uncovering better ways of developing software [products] by doing it and helping others do it. We value: 1. Individuals and interactions over processes and tools. 2. Working software [products] over comprehensive documentation. 3. Customer collaboration over contract negotiation. 4. Responding to change over following a plan. That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.

16 2. MANIFESTO of Agile Software Development Alliance, Principles: 1. Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software [product]. 2. Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage. 3. Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter time scale. 4. Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project. 5. Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done. 6. The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.

17 2. MANIFESTO of Agile Software Development Alliance, Principles: 7. Working software is the primary measure of progress. 8. Agile processes promote sustainable development. 9. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely. 10. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility. 11. Simplicity the art of maximizing the amount of work not done is essential. 12. The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from selforganizing teams. At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.

18 2. DOI - Declaration of Inter-Dipendence for Agile and Adaptive Management, Core Values: 1. We increase return on investment by making continuous flow of value our focus. 2. We deliver reliable results by engaging customers in frequent interactions and shared ownership. 3. We expect uncertainty and manage for it through iterations, anticipation and adaptation. 4. We unleash creativity and innovation by recognizing that individuals are the ultimate source of value, and creating an environment where they can make a difference. 5. We boost performance through group accountability for results and shared responsibility for team effectiveness. 6. We improve effectiveness and reliability through situationally specific strategies, processes and practices."

19 2. DOI as a 12-step process 1/2 12 DOI Steps: 1. Focus on the value that is being created and watch the flow of increase in value. 2. Make the unit of value in the flow small, in some ideal world a single unit, what the manufacturing people call continuous flow. 3. Engage the customers in frequent interaction. 4. Strive to get shared ownership. 5. Recognize that individuals are the ultimate source of value. 6. Create an environment where they can make a difference. Reference: Alistair Cockburn

20 2. DOI as a 12-step process 2/2 12 DOI Steps: 7. Build / design / work incrementally (our industry now calls these time periods iterations). 8. Anticipate what you can, meaning use the information you have. 9. Use feedback close-in and across levels, reflect after each iteration, and adapt to what you discover. 10. Use situationally specific strategies (or whatevery you call them) and follow-up actions. 11. Give the group single accountability for results (meaning that there is no value in passing blame; everyone is in it together). 12. Help everyone to feel shared responsibility for team effectiveness. Reference: Alistair Cockburn

26 4. APM today: some topics APM is less and less focused on IT industry. emerging trend: from general principles to specific processes, tools and techniques increasing number of APM educational programs, offered by recognized organizations, PMI included (i.e. eseminarworld Agile Project Management ) no de-facto cross-industry standards (regardless agile IT methods such as SCRUM, DSDM Dynamic Systems Development Method) qualifications (certifications) issued by private business companies and not-for-profit management institutions (i.e. SA, OGC, IPMA,PMI)

27 4. APM organizations 1/5 US 2003 US 2004 The Agile Alliance is a nonprofit organization with global membership, committed to advancing Agile development principles and practices (Manifesto of Agile Software Development, 2001). We believe that Agile approaches deliver higher value faster, and make the software industry more productive, humane, and sustainable. The Agile Alliance is a nonprofit organization that wants to see Agile projects start and help Agile teams perform. It is funded by individual memberships, corporate memberships, and by the proceeds from the Agile 200X series of conferences (2011 conference: attendees Salt Lake City Utah, US). We are not a certification body and do not endorse any certification programs. The Agile Project Leadership Network (APLN) is a non profit organization that is focused on making people great project leaders by focusing on the following: Value, Customers, Context, Teams, Individuals, Uncertainty. These ideas are described further in the DOI - Declaration of Interdependence (2005), which was written by the founding members of APLN and expresses the values that the group holds with respect to leading projects in today's chaotic world. The APLN has decided (april 2007) to start with two levels of certification which it has called Foundation and Practitioner levels. The Foundation level will focus on basic skills while the Practitioner level will have a higher level of expertise. None of these ideas have been flushed out yet. The APLN realized that this will be an extremely difficult and error-prone initiative, but they believed certification is a true need.

28 4. APM organizations 2/5 The Scrum Alliance is a notfor-profit professional membership organization created to share the Scrum framework and transform the world of work US 2002 Six certification programs Beginner level (through CST Certified Scrum Trainer): 1) CSM - Certified ScrumMaster, 2) CSPO - Certified Product Owner. Mid-level (through REP Registered Education Provider): 3) CSD - Certified Scrum Developer. Upper-level (directly by SA): 4) CSP - Certified Scrum Professional (before Practitioner). Professional level (directly by SA): 5) CST - Certified Scrum Trainer, 6) CSC - Certified Scrum Coach. UK 1994 The mission of the not-for-profit DSDM Consortium is to be the leading enabler of knowledge and learning for successful Agile project delivery. DSDM V4.2 is a framework that provides a flexible yet controlled process that can be used to deliver new systems, which combines the most effective use of people's knowledge, tools and techniques such as prototyping to achieve tight project delivery timescales. Typically, a DSDM project will deliver an operational system within six months. Different qualifications DSDM: 1) Foundation; 2) Practitioner; 3) Trainer; 4) Coach; 5) Consultant; 6) Examiner. Agile Certification Programme: 1) Agile Foundation; 2) Agile Project Leader Practitioner Agile Project Management: The new Agile Project Management qualification accredited by the APM Group was launched on 5th October 2010 with the aim of encouraging professional development in the field of Agile Project Management. Agile Project Management is based on DSDM the Agile Project Framework that provides a flexible yet controlled process that can be used to deliver IT solutions or business change projects and programmes. This new qualification focuses on the Project and Project Management aspects of DSDM.

30 4. APM organizations 4/5 Two levels of qualification (2009) Project Management Association of Canada - Association de Management de Projet du Canada The Project Management Association of Canada is the Canadian national member organization of the International Project Management Association. 1) Entry-level in agile project management called the PMAC Certificate in Agile Project Management. Those who are awarded this certificate have the right to use the postnomial Cert.APM. The exam will consist of 40 multiple-choice questions, which applicants will have up to two hours to complete. 2) PMAC Advanced Certificate in Agile Project Management This unique specialty project management certification is aimed at primarily IT project managers who are looking for additional credentials beyond basic project management credentials such as the PMP designation from PMI and basic agile certifications such as PMAC s Cert.APM and the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) designation. To be eligible, candidates must have the PMAC Certificate in Agile Project Management or a Certified Scrum Master (CSM) certificate, additional advanced agile training from an accredited provider, a minimum of one year of experience managing agile projects, a minimum of three years of overall project management experience, a completed project profile detailing how common agile challenges were overcome on the project, and candidates must pass an additional twohour exam.

Agile CoP moves from PMI Agile Specific Interest Group (2007). The PMI Agile Community of Practice focuses on delivering knowledge and providing a forum for virtual networking for stakeholders interested in, working in, or impacted by developments in the collection of good practices, principles, and techniques in Agile approaches to project management. Specifically, we plan to explore the relationship of Agile principles and practices to those of PMI, and how they may differ from or complement the teachings within the PMBOK Guide. Up to march 2012 Agile CoP consists of members. On april 2011, PMI launched a specific agile certification, ACP SM Agile Certified Practitioner
