Building Support for Moving From Projects to Products and Agile

Matthew Hotle, Distinguished VP Analyst, Gartner

Our inquiries over the past year have started to shift from asking "should I move from project to products" to "how do I get the organization to change."

Concerns include funding models, perceived lack of control and losing the iron triangle of scope, time and cost. This presentation will review the forces necessitating the change, the "what’s in it for me?" arguments for various stakeholders and tactics for helping the change occur.

Workshop: Defeat Economic Uncertainty With Agile Adaptive Budgeting

Stewart Buchanan, VP Analyst, Gartner

Some senior executives and their investors are becoming afraid of trade wars and other economic uncertainties. Meanwhile, CFOs are in love with the illusion of certainty that waterfall budgeting creates. To gain real control, they have to give up the illusion of control. Finance teams have often forgotten the primary reason for which they control spending — to maximize the value they report. Business value isn’t absolute, it needs to be developed and demonstrated through continuous iterations. Conditional budgeting overcomes uncertainty by setting the guardrails around what development products might be worth to the organization and how best to deliver that value.
