Show Notes

We were very fortunate today to have Barb Mastrianni, AVP and Senior Program Manager for the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies, Inc.  Barb shares the lessons that Chubb has learned about what it takes to do Agile "right" and how they've gone from a somewhat shaky start to an exponential growth in successful project outcomes. The secret is all about determining where you want to go before you try to go there, and putting governance guardrails in place to be sure that everyone (the business, IT, PMO, analysts, etc) understands the route and the destination before you set off. The idea of doing a pre-charter assessment to understand the project and rigor Chubb wraps around that process is particularly worthwhile. This is a must listen for any organization looking for ways to improve their Agile  practices.
