The new Governance SIG (slim) guide to ‘Agile Governance’ will be launched in 2015. It will be a guide independent of methodology, for the main board, CxOs, portfolio managers, programme managers and auditors.

At a joint event with the APM Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire Branch and the West Yorkshire Branch of the BCS, Brian Wernham will give a brief overview of the context of the guide and its target audience.

Adrian Pyne will outline the contents of the guide including:

  • Agile governance behaviours
  • Directing Agile change at board level
  • Agile risk management
  • The Agile CEO and other board members
  • The Agile portfolio
  • The Agile programme
  • Spotting ‘Agile snake oil’ salesmen
