Many auditors are now encountering Agile management methodologies for the first time. This can cause problems for the audit process because the methodology is very different from traditional project approaches. Aside from the difficulties faced by the auditor, an ineffective audit can have a negative effect on an Agile project and might even harm the final outcome.
An ideal introduction for auditors and risk managers
Written for auditors and Agile managers, Agile Governance and Audit bridges the gap between auditing requirements and Agile methodologies. It provides an overview of Agile for auditors and other risk professionals who have not encountered the approach before. The book also tells Agile teams what auditors and risk professionals need, and the questions they are likely to ask.
Each chapter includes hints and tips for auditors, and a selection of case studies illustrates the practical issues involved in auditing Agile projects. Providing helpful and practical guidance for agile teams preparing for forthcoming project audits, the book is written in an engaging and entertaining style that helps bring life to a potentially dry topic.
