    • Introduction to Agile PM A new type of project management Allows IT teams to work more efficiently and flexibly. Allow them to catch up with the change of information technology (CCPaceSystems, 2011). 5
    • Research on Agile PM (VersionOne, 2011, p.1) 6
    • Scrum Process(Deemer, Benefield, Larman, & Vodde, 2010, p.5). 7
    • Main Roles of Scrum PM1. Product Owner2. ScrumMaster3. The Team(Schwaber & Cohn, 2003). 8
    • Main Roles of Scrum PM(Cont’d)1. Product Owner ◦ Create the organization’s vision; ◦ Create and release a Product Backlog list; ◦ Prioritize and update Product Backlogs items; ◦ Maximize return on investment (ROI) by giving the most valuable feature a priority (Schwaber & Cohn, 2003). 9
    • Main Roles of Scrum PM(Cont’d)2. ScrumMaster ◦ Clarify the product vision and goals; ◦ Facilitate the team to turn the Product Backlog items into functionality; ◦ Hold Sprint meetings in the beginning of each iteration; ◦ Hold daily scrum meetings everyday; ◦ Remove potential barriers of the project; (Schwaber & Cohn, 2003). 10
    • Main Roles of Scrum PM(Cont’d)3. The Team ◦ Divide Sprint Backlog items into small tasks; ◦ Decide how to manage their tasks; ◦ Decide how maximize productivity; ◦ Make a commitment to their tasks (Schwaber & Cohn, 2003). 11
    • Main Roles of Scrum PM(Cont’d)How My Client Applies This Theory?1. Product Owner – Alvin Sheng, the owner.2. ScrumMaster – Han Yang, the IT leader.3. The Team – Eric Lin & Venus Fung, IT employees.(A. Sheng, personal communication,September 19, 2011). 12
    • Product Backlog List It contains all requirements from a customer, an IT development division, a marketing division, etc.  The Product Owner needs to prioritize all items in the list and estimate time and budget for the project.(Abrahamsson, Salo, Ronkainen, &Warsta, 2002). 13
    • Agile Prioritization1. Kano Analysis: Conduct survey and ask expert opinions to prioritise Product Backlog items (Cohn, 2008).2. Theme Screening: Create 5 to 9 selection criteria, select a benchmark, and rank other themes/items (Cohn, 2008). 14
    • Agile Prioritization (Cont’d)3. Theme Scoring: Create 5 to 9 selection criteria, but use criteria to rate themes/ items (Cohn, 2008).4. Relative Weighting: Compare all themes and calculate their value and cost. The formula of Relative Value/ Relative Cost (Cohn, 2008). 15
    • Agile Prioritization (Cont’d)Adding a New Item(Griffiths, 2011) 16
    • Agile Prioritization (Cont’d)How My Client Applies This Theory? Alvin Sheng, the Product Owner, can: ◦ Fix time (Softhouse Consulting. n.d.). ◦ Prioritize all Product Backlog items based on ROI (Schwaber & Cohn, 2003).  ROI = (Revenues – Costs)/ Costs (Saks & Haccoun, 2008).  I personally suggest using Theme Scoring to prioritize items (Cohn, 2008). 17
    • Sprint Backlog It is about 2 to 4 weeks each and is fixed (Stevens, 2008). Pieces of Product Backlog (Softhouse Consulting, n.d.). The highest prioritized Sprint Backlog will be complete first, and so on (Softhouse Consulting, n.d.). 18
    • Project Scheduling ScrumMaster can estimate both backlog size and the team’s velocity (Cottmeyer, 2010). The team should discuss and share opinions with one another (Cohn, 2005). 19
    • Project Scheduling (Cont’d)How My Client Applies This Theory? IT employees have to: ◦ Thoroughly understand what the Product Backlog list is. ◦ Divide the Product Backlog into pieces of Sprint Backlog.  The timeline of each Sprint Backlog is 2 to 4 weeks long. ◦ Divide Sprint Backlog into Backlog tasks. ◦ Make a commitment to those tasks (Stevens, 2008). However, all IT employees are new to the organization, they need time to learn more about one another (A. Sheng, personal communication, September 19, 2011). 20
    • Daily Scrum Meetings Usually 15 minutes long each The purpose is to share information, synchronize work and develop a short- term plan. Three basic questions : 1. What task have you completed yesterday?; 2. What task will you complete today?; and 3. Are there any obstacles? 21
    • Scrum Daily Meetings(Cont’d)How My Client Applies This Theory? The owner and IT employees can meet in the organization for 15 minutes everyday in order to keep track of the team’s performance and remove barriers (Schwaber & Sutherland, 2011). 22
    • Retrospective Meetings Usually 3 hours long each  Meet at the end of each iteration/ sprint  Briefing(Softhouse Consulting, n.d.). 23
    • Retrospective Meetings(Cont’d)How My Client Applies This Theory? The owner and IT employees can meet for 3 hours at the end of each iteration/ sprint in order to review the team’s performance and improve future performance (Softhouse Consulting, n.d). 24
    • Tool 1 – Task BoardsSample of Task Boards(Mountain Goat Software, n.d.). 25
    • Tool 1 – Task Boards (Cont’d) Terms of Task Boards Above ◦ Story: Product Backlog item; ◦ To Do: Tasks needed to accomplish; ◦ In Process: Tasks has been started already; ◦ To Verify: Tasks needed to be tested; ◦ Done: Tasks completed (Mountain Goat Software, n.d.). 26
    • Tool 1 – Task Boards (Cont’d)How My Client Applies This Tool? I will teach you how to draw it in the lecture. The IT leader can: ◦ draw a task board on the wall of the organization ◦ Update the team’s progress ◦ Monitor the whole project (Mountain Goat Software, n.d.). 27
    • Tool 2 – Sprint BacklogSample of Sprint Backlog (Deemer et al., 2010, p.11). 28
    • Tool 2 – Sprint Backlog (Cont’d)How My Client Applies This Tool? (Deemer et al., 2010, p.11). 29
    • Tool 3 – Burn-down ChartExample of Burn-down Chart (Wenzel, 2010). 30
    • Tool 3 – Burn-down Chart(Cont’d)Explanation for Burn-down Chart  Y-axis is the total amounts of remaining tasks needed to complete.  X-axis is the iteration timeline on a daily basis.  The blue line is the ideal progress  The red line is the actual progress(Wenzel, 2010). 31
    • Tool 3 – Burn-down Chart(Cont’d)Analysis of Burn-down Chart  Keep track of the actual progress.  Compare the actual progress with the desired progress.  The actual progress is on schedule if the red line is below the blue line.  The actual progress is behind schedule if the red line is above the blue line.(Wenzel, 2010). 32
    • Tool 3 – Burn-down Chart(Cont’d)Reaction to Forecast Delay 1. Reduce Scope 2. Increase Velocity (Stevens, 2008, p.15) (Stevens, 2008, p.15) 33
    • Tool 3 – Burn-down Chart(Cont’d)How My Client Applies This Tool? I will teach you how to draw it in the lecture. E.g. The owner and IT leader can compare both actual and desired progress to keep track of the team’s performance (Wenzel, 2010) and react to it if needed (Stevens, 2008). 34
    • Tool 4 – Burn-up ChartExample of a Burn-up Chart (Richardson, 2008) 35
    • Tool 4 – Burn-up Chart(Cont’d)Explanation for Burn-up Chart  Y-axis is the total amounts of actual tasks needed to complete.  X-axis is the iteration timeline on a daily basis.  The blue line is the total amount of tasks/ scope  The red line is the actual progress(Richardson, 2008). 36
    • Tool 4 – Burn-up Chart(Cont’d)Analysis of Burn-up Chart  Keep track of the actual progress.  Show every change of scope during iteration. *The burn-down chart cannot showit. (Richardson, 2008). 37
    • Tool 4 – Burn-up Chart(Cont’d)How My Client Applies This Tool? I will teach you how to draw it in the lecture. E.g. The owner and the IT leader can use a burn-up chart to keep track of changes of the project scope, such as adding or removing some codes (Richardson, 2008; A. Sheng, personal communication, October 19, 2011). 38
    • Testing1. Unit Testing: ◦ Test a new code and determine whether it works or not (Sousa, n.d.).2. Integration Testing: ◦ Combine all new codes with the system at the end of each sprint (Sousa, n.d.).3. Regression Testing: ◦ Make sure that all new codes and previous codes do not contradict to one another (Hartman, 2010). 39
    • Testing (Contd) Test Driven Development Methodology (Yenduri & Perkins, n.d. , p.2) 40
    • Testing (Contd)How My Client Applies This Theory? The IT leader can: ◦ Follow TDD methodology ◦ Write a simple test just enough for a new code to pass or fail at the beginning. ◦ Test the code gradually.  If the code fails the test, rework the code.  If the code passes the test, renew the test. ◦ Continue to test the code until it meets the specification/ requirement.(Yenduri & Perkins, n.d.). 41
    • Principles of Scrum PM ROI Maximization (Schwaber & Cohn, 2003). Fixed time (Schwaber & Sutherland, 2011). Cost control (Loeser, 2006). High product quality (Holler & Culling, 2010). Risk management & scope management (Karlesky & Voord, 2008). 42
    • Principles of Scrum PM(Cont’d) Simplicity (Holler & Culling, 2010). Adaptability (Holler & Culling, 2010). Flexibility (Griffiths, 2011). Transparency (CCPaceSystems, 2011). Collaboration and Commitment (Schwaber & Cohn, 2003; Holler, 2010). 43
    • Causes of Project Failure Inaccurate project estimates (Brown, 2011). Artificial project estimates (Brown, 2011). Lack of ongoing agile PM training (Holler & Culling, 2010). Different thoughts on project management (Holler & Culling, 2010). 44
    • Causes of Project Failure(Cont’d) Neglect of other aspects of the organization (Holler & Culling, 2010). Complexity (Holler & Culling, 2010). Neglect of capability (Holler & Culling, 2010). Lack of regression testing (Hartman, 2010). 45
