The Rise of Value Streams and AI in Agile Approaches

Agile is moving further into the mainstream, and much like its name suggests, these approaches are evolving. We discuss this with: 

Tammy Ashraf, PMI-ACP, Earth science systems integration manager, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, USA: Ashraf discusses the benefits of agile approaches, how traditionally risk-averse organizations are embracing agile techniques, and the skills project professionals need—such as servant leadership and a greater understanding of digital collaboration tools—as agile approaches evolve. 

Adeyinka Adeniran, PMI-ACP, PMP, PgMP, technical program manager, Quantiphi, London: Adeniran discusses how his use of agile approaches has evolved, starting with scrum and moving to a DevOps environment; how he’s seen greater use of design thinking and artificial intelligence in agile; and why he believes these two trends are growing.
