Slides from my talk to Unicom "Agile in the Public Sector" on 7 March, 2013. Governance is about decision making. If you don't address it head on, then people will waste a lot of time on demarcation disputes & etc.
Agile changes several aspects of decision making -- the locus of authority, the timing of decisions, notions of "best practice" -- but it doesn't change the need to make decisions about priorities, resources, tools, etc. So you need to think about governance.
This talk discusses some work I've been doing to help organisations and teams explore differing views of decision rights and processes. If you can't talk about governance, then you sure as hell can't manage it.
