Agile software management methods have helped teams become faster, but until now these methods don’t work well within the traditional phased development environments (waterfall). We demonstrate with case studies and a recent Silicon Valley study how select agile components (sprints, retrospectives, and burn down charts) can be tailored into a new project management model for complex product development. We also show the relevance of cadence, standup meetings and other foundations of the agile methodology in waterfall environments to give you a fresh approach to managing projects.
You will learn:
• How to create the Boundary Conditions to clarify and quantify project risks
• How to break a phased project into Sprints that balance overhead with agility
• How to apply Predictive Metrics to accurately gage progress
