ACTEX eLearning Webinar: Agile Development for Actuaries and Insurance Professionals
Event Date: April 24, 2019 1:00 - 2:15 PM EST
Presenter: Laura McKiernan Boylan, FSA, CERA

Help save your company time and money and advance your career by learning how to apply Agile methodologies to scoping new projects and managing their flow.


Building upon decades of emerging lightweight software development frameworks, the Agile Manifesto was penned in 2001, outlining the values and principles most central to good software product development. Agile principles spread across industries, and most recently, the actuarial world has picked up its jargon and ceremonies. Buzzwords aside, a well-implemented Agile framework provides the foundation for implementing a disciplined project management approach, with a focus on flexibility, collaboration, and accountability.

In this ACTEX eLearning webinar, we will demystify the basic principles of Agile and discuss how they might be employed in actuarial work. Even small-scale changes can impact culture and work products. For example, the concept of a Minimum Viable Product informs prioritization and project scoping, leading to streamlined processes and a clear vision. Estimation can lead to more manageable planning exercises and more realistic project plans and execution. An Agile approach that supports continuous iteration lends flexibility to design and quality to final products. If you are looking to deepen your understanding of Agile or learn about how you might implement some ideas and practices within your team, this webinar is for you.
