Product Overview

Project managers are under increasing pressure to deliver more with less time and fewer resources. The pace of change is relentless, with technological opportunities far beyond what we imagined a decade ago.

Adopting the Agile methodology helps organisations develop the flexibility and adaptability necessary in such fast-paced environments.

Agile can be frightening, as it represents a completely different approach from other project management methodologies that an organisation may be used to, and also changes the project audit and review processes. Using Agile for non-IT projects – such as the introduction of new products, refurbishing retail outlets, and even planning and running audits – means that general auditors and other reviewers, as well as IT specialist auditors are now having to understand Agile practices.

This guide provides an overview of Agile for auditors, reviewers and project teams

This guide discusses the following:

  • What are the Agile project management audit objectives?
  • What risks are covered by each objective?
  • What controls can we expect and how can these be audited?
  • Case studies illustrating Agile project initiation and high-level requirements.
  • Hints and tips for performing an audit review.

For experienced auditors and project management teams, this guide demonstrates how they can adapt and reuse audit skills that they may have gained during traditional waterfall, CCTA Risk Analysis and Management Method (CRAMM) or PRINCE2® implementation/audits. For those less experienced, it will encourage them to consider some of these good practices and their application to Agile audits.

An ideal introduction to Agile project management for auditors, project managers, Agile teams and students.
