Drunken PM

by Dave Prior

Drunken Boxing for Project Managers “The main feature of the drunkard boxing is to hide combative hits in drunkard-like, unsteady movements and actions so as to confuse the opponent.

Requirements in Agile

white paper
by Joy Beatty Candase Hokanson

When companies move to an agile Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), they often remove the processes and analysis of their waterfall SDLC because, as the Agile Manifesto puts it, “They value individual and interactions over processes and tools.” Some of the rigor should be removed – waterfall processes can get bogged down with gates and sign-offs. However, caution must be exercised to not go too far against processes and analysis and rely just upon backlogs and user stories. Requirements and the analysis that leads to those requirements are just as essential in an agile project as they are in a waterfall project. The difference lies in how much requirements analysis is completed and the timing of it.
