Healthy Governance of Agile Delivery – Steve Parks, Agile on the Beach 2019

Watch Steve Parks from Convivio deliver his Agile On The Beach 2019 talk on the healthy governance of Agile delivery at Agile On The Beach 2019. Steve looks at the interface to the rest of the organisation where friction often occurs for delivery teams and with it brings particular frustration at the overhead of governance.

Steve conducted a discovery to explore the needs of stakeholders from governance processes in government digital projects, to understand how their needs might be met in other ways that are more compatible with agile ways of working. As a result he’s begun prototyping lightweight tools with the Cabinet Office to enable governance to be something that happens naturally, close to delivery, rather than in meetings and reports.

In this presentation he shares the research, and some of the tools – including an update on the risk management approach he presented at Agile On The Beach in 2018.

Steve has lead digital projects since 2004 for organisations ranging from MTV to the Cabinet Office. He now leads the team at Convivio, a digital services agency that helps government work better for people
