Agile Survey Results (131 Companies) an EPSRC funded centre an EPSRC funded centre Did Agile Processes Result In: Positive Neutral Negative Reduction or significant reduction in cost 49% 46% 5% Better or significantly better productivity 93% 5% 2% Better or significantly better quality 88% 11% 1% Better or significantly better business satisfaction 83% 16% 1% Workshop r.l.owen@pgr.salford.ac.uk Online Survey of 131 Companies (Source: (Shine, 2003)) R Owen Mar 06 R Owen Mar 06 Workshop Background 1. Please Describe Your Workshop Team an EPSRC funded centre an EPSRC funded centre  APM offers real improvements in management and value realisation  APM offers long-term benefits through reliable delivery and consequent trust networks  Proposition: APM can be beneficially applied to the pre-design and design stages of construction but probably not to the construction phase itself due to established practice & cultural inertia R Owen Mar 06 R Owen May 06 3. Review The Characteristics 2. Review The Methods Considered Considered an EPSRC funded centre an EPSRC funded centre Add more methods, if you think they may Most Agile Trait Least Agile Trait be appropriate R Owen May 06 R Owen May 06 3

Assign Best Fit of Characteristic to Considered (continued) Method – An Example an EPSRC funded centre an EPSRC funded centre How you gain consensus is up to each team! R Owen May 06 R Owen May 06 Please Start an EPSRC funded centre an EPSRC funded centre  You have 30 (?) minutes  Results will be merged (possibly after further contact) and then published on the EGLC website  The merged result will be used to increment the first iteration and then The End! be presented at IGLC  Please don’t draw blood! r.l.owen@pgr.salford.ac.uk R Owen Mar 06 R Owen May 06 4
