Governance is the formalization and exercise of repeatable decision-making practices. The term Agile governance emphasizes rapid decision-making, based on lightweight artifacts that are developed with minimum effort. Thus, Agile governance can be exercised for projects that are inherently non-Agile, or which contain a hybrid mixture of Agile and other processes.
The principles act as a guide for how to construct new governance recipes for the unique scenarios that cPrime encounters with clients. Often organizations that are growing rapidly, or whose methodologies are in flux, are the ones who seek help with refining their governance practices.
cPrime has written a comprehensive white paper, Recipes for Agile Governance in the Enterprise , which illustrates how Agile Governance can be accomplished by defining and using a set of standardized elements: Roles, Ceremonies, Metrics, and Governance Points at the different levels of an organization.
