A Business Case for Agile - Why Agile makes good business sense

Published: 2012-05-10

System Development has been around for the best part of 50 years, yet, after all this time, successful Development Projects; projects that deliver what the business required, on time and in budget are still in the minority. Depending on the statistics, successful projects are out numbered by the challenged, failed or aborted projects by anything from 2:1 to 6:1.

Most business executives have a love hate relationship with IT. They can’t survive without IT but IT continually don’t deliver on promises, deliver systems that are buggy, systems that often doesn’t provide the functionality that the business requires, systems that are late and over budget.

A number of independent but similar initiatives aimed at addressing these problems have come into the market over the last 10 to 15 years. These initiatives have a number of common characteristics which have become known in the industry as ‘Agile’. Simplistically the Agile approach recognizes and addresses the shortcomings found in Traditional, Waterfall based development methods.

Agile is now a proven set of principles and techniques that consistently allow businesses, big and small, complex and simple, old and new, to build better quality systems at lower cost and higher ROI and user satisfaction.

Attend this seminar to understand how agile works and whether it can make a difference in your organisation.

This event has happened.
