Sharing the story on how the Pearson Global Product Lifecycle embraces iterative funding influenced by Beyond Budgeting, Agile and Lean Startup to develop leading products with the learner at the centre.
Projects are no longer optimal to deliver digital products. The customer relationship and environment has changed. Businesses need to adopt a whole new culture around projects if they are going to keep or grown their customer base and look beyond using projects to sustain value.
This is a recap on the 2 days behind the inaugural event of Agilecymru.uk 2015. This was the first of many Agile conferences we hope to see in South Wales, bringing in a wide range of internationally recognised leading speakers.
The global product development lifecycle is more than just a visualisation of a product at a life stage. We have created a framework which acts as a lens into the global organisation, allowing the organisation to fully use it’s capabilities to adopt agile beyond the development teams. Wrapped into this are Lean Startup practices, which fully embrace Build, Measure, Learn at the heart of product development.
Agile Cymru in association with Adaptagility, is a jam-packed 2 day conference with presentations from leading experts in the agile space. The conference will take place in the heart of Cardiff and the home of the Welsh Arts – the Millennium Centre on July 7 and 8, 2015.
As the first of its kind to grace the capital of Wales, Agile Cymru is all set to inspire and educate those of the Welsh community looking for a more collaborative, flexible and responsive way of working. The event format will consist of interactive and storytelling workshops, giving first-hand advice and techniques to attendees, from industry experts and practitioners.
Over a products lifecycle, different agile methodologies are more suited and evolve over time. We take a look into evolving practices and frameworks overtime in an agile context and see where Lean Startup, Scrum and Kanban appear and how this relates to Lean.

Using Lean Startup and Agile practices, the global product lifecycle aims to transform the entire organisation to become a true product culture with the learner at the centre.
