Transform Your Museum with Agile

Andy Cummins, Cogapp, UK, Gavin Mallory, Cogapp, UK

Agile is transformational for digital projects in museums.

Working in an Agile way emphasizes inclusivity and digital responsiveness. It helps to deliver on this year’s conference theme by helping museum professionals realise projects that will create, facilitate, deliver or participate in culture, science and heritage through networked technologies – wherever the network may reach.

In this half-day workshop we will introduce participants to Agile, specifically SCRUM, and the benefits it provides in terms of delivering projects that meet user and stakeholder needs.

Participants can expect to learn the basics of Agile and be armed with the knowledge to make a meaningful change in their respective organizations.

In the session we will run through some practical exercises to demonstrate how Agile works. These hands-on sessions will illustrate the high level principles and benefits of Agile. After the practical session we’ll look at the intricacies of the process in more detail.

There are no pre-requisites to the workshop and we will provide materials for participants to use during the workshop. These materials will also be a reference for when participants want to start implementing Agile in their own projects.

This session is aimed at Agile beginners from any discipline, it would benefit project managers, digital developers and program managers among others.
