Abstract

This paper seeks to explore the way in which agility across the product development process may be measured using a previously defined measure of agility: the Key Agility Index. It is a fact that very few companies keep accurate records of project timings and the delays caused by unpredictable events. The classification of unexpected events for two case studies is explored here, based on a previously defined classification system of trivial, minor, major and fatal events. The case studies show how empirical qualitative data regarding project timings and unexpected events can be gathered through expert interview and can be used with the Key Agility Index to provide a realistic and practical measure of agility. © 2006 ISAM.
