  34. 34. agile
  35. 35. Manifesto for Agile Software Development We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value: Individuals and interactions over processes and tools Working software over comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration over contract negotiation Responding to change over following a plan That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more. www.agilemanifesto.org
  36. 36. short development cycles, iteration, end user involvement, multi-disciplinary teams
  37. 37. compare & contrast with ‘project management 1.0’
  38. 38. large scale projects
  39. 39. top down

  47. 47. horizon & beyond timelines
  48. 48. expected failure.
  49. 49. why do these types of project fail?
  50. 50. firstly. do they fail?
  51. 51. Oracle, PeopleSoft, SAP, Accenture, IBM Global Services
  52. 52. the 1.0 ‘large scale’, top down project approach fails spectacularly. All the time.
  53. 53. except, they don’t *officially* fail. Because we update the Gantt chart as we go. We move the goal posts
  54. 54. but why?
  55. 55. traditional project management doesn’t match the way we work.
  56. 56. war story
  57. 57. project management 2.0 projects *also* fail all the time.
  58. 58. for different reasons...
  59. 59. usually because it just wasn’t such a great idea.
  60. 60. or the implementation was completely wrong
  61. 61. or the audience doesn’t exist yet.
  62. 62. but it doesn’t matter.
  63. 63. because they’re smaller and faster. there’s less invested.
  64. 64. dust off. take the learning. move on.
  65. 65. ok. so what’s all this social stuff got to do with it?
  66. 66. new toys
  67. 67. but, will it scale?
  68. 68. creating a composite
  69. 69. a recent war story
  70. 70. old principles new principles
  71. 71. the take home lesson
