PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND AGILE
Why Project Management
◦ Complex and different class types
◦ Very different demands and needs
◦ Manage inputs and outputs
◦ Projects are defined by
◦ Start time
◦ End time
◦ Defined work product
6
About Agile
◦ Iterative and incremental
◦ Complete small portions in each delivery cycle
◦ Agile is an ideology for delivering projects, not a framework
◦ Used heavily in software development and IT environments
7
Some Agile Methodologies
◦ Timeboxing – a fixed amount of time to work in
◦ Refactoring – changing internals without changing externals
◦ Backlogs – an ordered list of requirements
8
KANBAN
What is Kanban?
◦ Developed by Toyota to manage just-in-time production
◦ Uses cards on physical supplies to manage the supply chain
◦ Next order card is sent when current supply set is opened
Image by Jean-Baptiste Waldner
10
Kanban in Software Development
◦ Methods were adopted for abstract work
◦ Think software development
◦ Kanban can combine with other agile methods
11
The Kanban Board
◦ Basic board has 3 columns: to do, doing, done
◦ Backlog items move forward as they progress
◦ Backlog items can move backwards, if necessary
Image by Jeff.lasovski
12
Kanban in the Classroom
◦ Courses look like projects
◦ There are some dependencies, but not a lot
◦ Weekly- or module-oriented course framework is implicitly timeboxing
So let’s kanban this!

15
ALTERNATIVE METHODS
Scrum
◦ No manager, but rather a facilitator
◦ Stand-up meetings
◦ Burndown charts showing work left to do
◦ Might be applicable in group-work oriented classes, such as capstones
17
DISCUSSION
Obvious Questions
◦ Isn’t this just putting your todo list on the web?
◦ How do students react to this?
◦ Can this work in a team teaching environment?
19
Conclusions
◦ This can help manage a classroom
◦ It should be completely transparent to the student
◦ It should not interfere with classroom methods
