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. The secret of this style of boxing is maintaining a clear mind while giving a drunken appearance.” Yeah... just like that… but with network diagrams and burndown charts… and a wee bit less vodka.

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.

by Kevin Coleman

by Andy Jordan

Agile for Your Team's Well-Being? It's Not All Roses

by Gil Broza

Studies show that the key factor for job stress is not the job itself, but rather the fit between the person and the environment. And this begs the question: If you change your environment to a more agile one, will that improve people’s well-being?

Business Cases in an Agile World

by Andy Jordan

by Andy Jordan

Project Success Rates: Going Beyond OTOBOS

by Anthony Mersino, PMP, PMI-ACP, CSM, CSP, PSPO

We've measured project success or failure using the triple constraint for years. Reporting on whether the project is on time, on budget and on scope (OTOBOS) has strong appeal. But these measures are out of date and fail to report on what is really important.

Flavors of Hybrid Agile

by Mike Griffiths

Like baking, how we combine elements results in very different outcomes, each suited to different occasions (or just a useless mess). This article explores the reasons and results of a couple of popular hybrid project approaches.

Hybrid PM: The Organic Option

by Michael Wood

It's important to have a common language in project management. The rub comes when we get so preoccupied with labeling that our focus gets misdirected—we begin to concentrate on form rather than function.
