Event Details

Does your organisation do Agile projects? Are you required to assure/audit them, or as a deliverer meet the needs of assurers/auditors? Can you?

Assurance in projects generally involves some measure of independent and intrusive reviews, usually timed to fit the projects’ lifecycles. How does this work in Agile environments? How can the right assurance be provided at the right time?

This conference will provide delegates with real-life examples of public and private sector organisations and projects for which this challenge is very real and current, and learn how they are addressing it.

Not only will you hear from others, you will also have an opportunity to give the benefits of your experience to others.

The conference is being run as a joint event between the APM Assurance SIG, the BCS and the NAO, so you can be sure of the pedigree of the speakers; they know what they’re talking about!

Confirmed speakers so far are:

  • Alison Terry, NAO - Keynote Speaker
  • Jose Casal-Gimenez, BCS Agile Methods SG
  • Brian Wernham, author of ‘Agile Project Management for Government’: Gateway reviews: waterfall biased or Agile ready?
  • Stuart Mitchell, Global Programme Manager, HSBC: Tiptoeing Elephants
  • Henry Loo, NIU: Quality Assurance in Japanese Construction
  • John Underhill, Babcock: Agile Project Management in Heavy Engineering Design


Agile projects may no longer be new but there is little literature around about how organisations can get the assurance they need that they are under control. This conference will help to fill the gap for you.
