    English

    This paper from the Agile Business Consortium takes the results of a comprehensive research into Agile Culture and sets out a vision of what it could mean for your
    organisation. To be truly Agile, an organisation needs to operate in a very different way, with leadership, values and norms all reinforcing the culture. Business agility is concerned with the adoption and evolution of values, behaviors and capabilities that enable businesses and individuals to be more adaptive, creative
    and resilient when dealing with complexity, uncertainty and change, leading to improved well-being and better outcomes.

    ITIL - DevOps - IT Management -
    English

    This white paper describes the synergies between ITIL best practices and DevOps (development and operations) practices. ITIL focuses on the lifecycle of services, from inception to retirement, and provides best-practice guidance for IT service management (ITSM). The ITIL service lifecycle includes the development and operation of services. DevOps is a movement, inspired by lean methodology and agile development practices, which aims to achieve seamless workflow for product synchronization between all possible organizational functions – especially development and operations groups. A DevOps approach tries to reconcile the different priorities and processes of these groups, all for the purpose of facilitating greater business agility and delivering more value to the end user. In some organizations, this work is performed by virtual teams from different groups.

    AgilePM - PRINCE2 Agile - PRINCE2 2017 - Project Management -
    English

    The goal of this white paper from Axelos is to introduce PRINCE2 and PRINCE2 Agile to people working in agile environments, by answering questions like “Can PRINCE2 work with an Agile delivery mechanism?” and “Even knowing that PRINCE2 can work with an agile delivery model, why should I want to know more about this? What are the benefits of the integration?”. One of the challenges that we face when we discuss PRINCE2 in any context is the number of myths and misconceptions that abound about the model. Many think they know what it is and how it works.  Yet the reality is often very different. Some of the myths about PRINCE2 are around PRINCE2 being “top-heavy”, waterfall based, focuses on command and control etc… While PRINCE2 in fact shows that is a tailored framework, it makes no mention to command and control, and no mention to waterfall, and it has many mentions of small and light management relative to the size job.

    PRINCE2 2017 - Project Management -
    English

    The 2017 version of PRINCE2, while keeping the essentials of the method unchanged, focuses on the principle of TAILORING, underlining how PRINCE2 should be tailored for a project’s particular circumstances. The renewed emphasis on this principle is proven by a completely new chapter focusing on “Tailoring and adopting PRINCE2”. In this chapter the authors show how PRINCE2 can and MUST be tailored to suit specific situations. To that end, they add a lot of useful tips on what can be tailored and how. We asked two of our Project Management expert as well as PRINCE2 trainer and consultants to answer the question “How to use PRINCE2 on a small-scale project?” by giving examples and concrete Best Practices to follow. This document includes 2 articles: “An example of PRINCE2 Tailoring: a Trainer’s Wedding!” By Fabio Savarino and “Understand Your Needs and Choose the Proper Approach” By Armel Quirino. ENJOY YOUR READING!

    Since its introduction in 2010, AgilePM has fast established itself as the leading framework and certification for agile project management. Key benefits often attributed to Agile include improved revenue and speed to market, developing the right product/solution (through iterative development and incremental delivery) and increased collaboration and customer satisfaction. So why should organizations and project professionals consider AgilePM to support their adoption or  improvement of agile project management practices? In this white paper, APMG International explains the Agile Business Consortium’s 8 principles for effective agile project delivery.
