Agile for Actuaries

2022 Webinar - Agile for Actuaries- August 30

Agile approaches grew from the software development domain but are increasingly being used in other industries. Agile works well for any kind of knowledge work, where people with subject matter experts collaborate and take part in analysis and/or development. Today 80% of the workforce is engaged in knowledge work and the application of agile techniques is expanding.
This presentation outlines how agile approaches work and discusses their application for actuaries. Starting with a non-software explanation of how agile projects operate, we will discuss each of the agile components and if/how they would work for actuaries. We will also briefly discuss how agile overlaps with design thinking, lean start-up, and Kanban.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the basics of agile approaches.
  • Know when to apply an agile approach.
  • List the pros and cons of using agile ways of working.
