Agile Project Management is arguably the leading IT project development methodology in use today. It is also becoming increasingly accepted that an Agile approach has potential applicability across all business units in a diverse range of industries.
The traditional view is that the benefits of a project or change initiative are realised after a project is complete. However Agile’s incremental capability / outcome delivery approach encourages benefit owners to continuously focus on the value created with each deliverable / iteration, relative to the business case which supported the project investment.
The ongoing feedback from benefits focused stakeholders when combined with project delivery teams provide a range of insightful performance-based Lead Indicators.
The audience will learn techniques for visualising the link between project execution and strategic contribution that can be applied to both existing and emerging programs.
There will also be a specific focus on incremental benefits realisation techniques, with a focus on the identification of Value Drivers for benefits and outcomes across a program of work. This allows the work with the greatest value contribution to be identified and executed first.
Matt Williams is one of Australia’s thought leaders in the field of realising benefits and value from transformational change programs.
He equips organisations with the tools and techniques to increase the value realised while reducing the time and costs of delivery through a new business-driven, strategy-based approach to value delivery.
Matt is also a regular speaker at PMI, AIPM (Australia) and APM (UK) events on the topics of Benefits Management, Program Delivery and Cost Optimisation.
Matt holds a Business degree majoring in Management Information Systems from the University of South Australia, and received his Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from the Project Management Institute in 2003.
