Certain project assurance functions expect to see documentation, plans, review points and, in fact, so do some project sponsors. What happens when project teams adopt an Agile delivery framework? What happens when the expectations, tools and techniques used by traditional project assurance don’t fit the Agile model?
Project Assurance for Lean-Agile projects is radically different to the approach used for traditional Waterfall projects. It calls for greater emphasis on adding value to the Agile delivery. In undertaking Agile Project Assurance the auditor will need to make judgements and cannot simply rely on the existence of various artefacts for evaluation purposes.
