BIA has committed to being a 100% Agile function in 2018.

In H1 2018, we expect our audits to have the following attributes:

1. Maintain full team involvement for the duration of the audit. Clarity on roles

and responsibilities.

2. Audit work is ordered, visualised and updated on Scrum Boards.

3. Audit work is delivered in Sprints. These are consistent time boxes that

break down the duration of an audit.

4. During the audit, each sprint is structured with the key Scrum events (Sprint

Planning, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review and Sprint Retrospective).

5. Internal and External stakeholders with a vested interest in the audit are

invited to the Sprint Review events.
