What are the key benefits of integrated agile project delivery?
Here are the key benefits obtained for a USD 1.6 billion Oil and Gas project which followed Integrated Agile Project delivery;
Project completion ahead of 36 months schedule
90% on time delivery of deliverables
80% deliverables completed within budget
100% quality assurance across all team’s output
80% reduction in errors and rework
Integrated project planning
Multi layered planning (master, phase, look ahead, weekly)
Collaborative tool usage for planning, monitoring and control of distributed development
Availability of project information on time
Exception based management resulting in reduced meeting time
Collaborative team work
Weekly corrective / preventive action meetings
Basic building blocks of Agile
The master plan – The master plan of the project from the start to finish. Very often at the milestone level.
Phase plan – Subset of the master plan which culminates in a major deliverable / deliverable.
Make ready plans / Look ahead plans – Subset of the phase plan with six weeks window
Self-organizing teams – Teams are selected based on the skills required to deliver the output of the make ready plan. The team decides how they are going to perform the work. They collectively sequence the tasks, identify the constraints and dependencies upfront, eliminate them and sees the work progress together during the daily review meeting, and make the adjustments required to deliver on time. This results in smoother work flows, motivation and positive peer pressure to deliver.
Weekly plans – Subset of the look ahead plans
Frequent reviews – Weekly and monthly
Daily stand up meetings
Constant constraint removal
Frequent Forecasting of estimate to complete and estimated schedule date (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Phase, Master plan level)
