Abstract

Companies in the IT industry today often use agile project management methods to govern their projects. Agilemethods value high transparency, self-organizing teams and a process to inspect and adapt. Some of the tools and disciplines from these agile methods are purely aimed at software development. The hypothesis of this paper is that the agile project management methods are suitable in other areas as well. This paper presents preliminary findings and conclusions about using agile project management methods in public event projects.



The case study, carried out with an action research methodology, investigates the Swedish company Galaxen

who have organized public music and culture events since 1992. This research indicates that several techniques and principles, originally developed for software programmers, can be adopted also in the area of public events. Time-boxed iterations and visual tools for planning, collaboration and follow up are being used with great success
