APM Governance SIG to work on Agile Governance at annual meeting on 11 June


22 May 2014 – London, UK – The APM Governance SIG will hold their annual business meeting on 11 June at Holiday Inn Regents Park, Carburton Street, London, W1W 5EE.  During the meeting, participants will continue work on the proposed ‘Agile Governance’ guidance.  For information about the meeting, click here.


In recent discussions around specific high profile projects, practitioners in UK have explained how organisations have struggled to apply traditional approaches, methods and controls to the growing number of Agile projects and how to adopt agile ideas into portfolio management and the management of Hybrid Agile/Waterfall Programmes.

In May the Governance SIG held an event to kick-off the development of guidance for ‘Agile Governance’ and in an agile fashion, a page of the new ‘product’ was re-drafted. The June meeting will continue that work – evolving the new guidance materials page-by-page in an incremental fashion until there is a deliverable product.

Over the past few years the APM Governance SIG has been at the forefront of developing new thinking on governance, for example we have published guides – Directing Change, Co-Directing Change, Sponsoring Change.
The agenda for the AGM portion of the June 11 meeting will include

• Welcome/apologies
• Previous AGM minutes
• Chairman’s report
• Election of committee (the officer posts of Chair and Secretary will be elected at the first meeting of the new committee)
