Key benefits of Integrated Agile Project delivery from a 1.6 billion Oil and Gas project

Introduction

Key benefits of Integrated Agile Project delivery from a 1.6 billion Oil and Gas project;

  • Project completion ahead of 36 months schedule
  • 90% on time delivery of deliverables
  • 80% deliverables completed within budget
  • 100% quality assurance across all team’s output
  • 80% reduction in errors and rework

Key enablers

  • Integrated planning
  • Multiple levels of planning
    • Master plan
    • Phase wise plan
    • Look ahead plan
    • Weekly plan
  • Availability of project information on time
    • Exception based management resulting in reduced meetings
  • Collaborative team work supported by collaboration system
    • Weekly corrective / preventive action meetings

Basic Building blocks of Agile  

  • The master plan – The master plan of the project from the start to finish. Very often at the milestone level.  
  • Phase plan – Subset of the master plan which culminates in a major deliverable / deliverable.
  • Make ready plans / Look ahead plans – Subset of the phase plan with six weeks window
  • Formation of self-organizing teams – Teams are selected based on the skills required to deliver the output of the make ready plan. The team decides how they are going to perform the work. They collectively sequence the tasks, identify the constraints and dependencies upfront, eliminate them and sees the work progress together during the daily review meeting, and make the adjustments required to deliver on time.  This results in smoother work flows, motivation and positive peer pressure to deliver.
  • Weekly plan
  • Weekly and monthly reviews  
  • Daily stand up meetings
  • Retrospective meetings
  • Information radiators
  • Constant constraint removal
  • Forecasting (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Phase, Master plan level)
  • Key metrics
