Agile is an established methodology used to cope with change and uncertainty. It has proved popular in product development and project management across a wide range of sectors. Understanding the impact of Agile on the bottom line and how this affects the financial management and appraisal of projects is therefore of central importance to executives, project sponsors and managers, risk managers, PMO staff and anyone else who shares an interest in the viability and profitability of new products and services. By focusing on the essential elements of Agile that are of relevance to financial management, this title offers a simple, direct and practical guide on topics of such as requirements gathering and estimation, Agile contracting, cost accounting and the handling of operational and capital expenditure, the impact of Agile on ROI, the practicalities of financial decision-making, reporting of value and benefits realisation, the impact of budgetary practices on Agile and the management of financial uncertainty in Agile projects.
