Abstract

One of the biggest challenges in a modern construction project is efficiently managing the ever-increasing amount of changes while keeping the cost and timeline in check. Agile framework was developed to address this challenge and has been extensively used in the IT industry. However, these principles can be applied to non-IT projects as well. Agile methodologies like Scrum and Kanban are increasing being used in a wide range of areas, from construction projects and product design to marketing campaigns and wedding planning.

 

Session Abstract

Agile framework is based on iterative development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams. It’s a set of values and principles that help teams respond to unpredictability through incremental, iterative work cadences and continuous feedback.

Scrum is the most popular methodology under the Agile umbrella. Scrum emphasizes empirical feedback, team self-management, and striving to build shippable product increments within short iterations.

Kanban is another popular flavor of Agile that focuses on visualizing and managing the flow of work, in order to balance demand with available capacity and remove bottlenecks.

> Gain a broad understanding of the Agile framework
> Discover Scrum and Kanban, the two most widely used Agile methodologies, and see how they can be used in construction industry
