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 organizations develop the flexibility and adaptability necessary in such fast-paced environments.

Agile takes a completely different approach to other project management methodologies that an organization may be used to, and changes the project audit and review processes. The use of Agile for non-IT projects – such as introducing new products, refurbishing retail outlets, and even planning and running audits – means that general auditors and other reviewers, as well as IT specialist auditors, need to understand Agile practices.

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

This guide covers:

  • Agile project management audit objectives
  • The risks covered by each objective
  • What controls to expect and how these can 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, CRAMM (CCTA Risk Analysis and Management Method), or PRINCE2® implementation/audits. For those less experienced, it will encourage them to consider these good practices and their application to Agile audits.

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