X : f you have no changes because of fixed scope, is there a need for Agile?
Me : As in XP, not whatever "agile" has become? Ok, pretty straightforward ... start by mapping out your landscape i.e. focus on user needs, understand the chain of components, map over evolution.
... one thing you learn from mapping is there are no one size fits all methods i.e. each has its context. So use it. Agile here is lightweight XP (see @KentBeck) and not whatever horror people have come up with. Lean is more Scrum / MVP etc.
... so apply it. In other words, use appropriate methods. Ditto outsourcing etc i.e. don't outsource the whole lot or try to build it all in-house. Both are usually problematic.
... now, of course, your map is a living document. Surprise, surprise things evolve. So, expect your methods to change as the thing evolves. Ask @GoAgileGov to talk about his work on HS2 circa 2012-2016(?). He is a good speaker btw.
... it's also not just project methods but purchasing methods that have context ... in fact oodles of stuff has.
... when you get good at this then you can organise by it, apply strategy to manipulate the market, use multiple cultures, use appropriate finance methods, remove duplication and bias ... oh, the list goes on. Looking at the landscape before making a choice always seems to help.
... anyway, here endeth the lesson circa 2007. I keep telling myself not to repeat this, despite all the blogposts etc since then. Gosh, it's 2019. I am boring myself silly. Time to get back to culture.
If you want to twist anyone's arm over mapping, go follow @jamesaduncan ... he was not only there but instrumental in its creation back in '05. If anyone on the planet knows mapping as well as me, it's James. PS. He is also a good speaker ... or try @kda (aka @wardleymaps) or ...
... well, it's a long list. @BenMosior, @jhngrant. @mrchrisadams, @cacorriere and many others do a fabulous job keeping the community in touch. Then, there's always ... #MapCamp - eventbrite.com/e/map-camp-201…
