This course is designed for the Earned Value Management (EVM) professional who wants to learn how to apply Agile development techniques on large complex projects that have EVM requirements. Integrating EVM with Scrum, allows for a lean and adaptive development approach while maintaining EIA-748 compliance and satisfying the need to effectively measure, forecast, and ultimately improve project performance. This approach is especially helpful for large complex programs, like Department of Defense (DoD) contracts, because its focus is iterative, highly interactive incremental releases of measurable working product.
The workshop focuses on agile teams and provides real world application of the roles, artifacts and events that are used in Scrum. Attendees are encouraged to use a product from their own portfolio or use the provided drone product example. Students will walk through the project lifecycle from developing a product vision, product roadmap, product backlog, IMP, IMS, and time-phased budget, to measuring performance, reporting and analyzing Agile metrics.
The three-day workshop encourages participants to discuss real-world application of the learned concepts and provides dedicated time to answer questions and provide in depth examples drawn from real experiences. Complex topics are covered such as tailoring Agile to EVMS hierarchy, and the implication of story, feature and epic changes on the performance measurement baseline and forecast.
Topics covered include:
Learn Agile/Scrum basics and explore Agile-EVM touch points. Discuss approaches to integrating Agile performance data with the EVM system and discover how Agile/Scrum methodologies can bring increased value and visibility to your program in an upcoming Agile for EVM Professionals course!
