Are your Agile teams struggling to meet their sprint goals? Sprint planning is a critical activity to set the foundation for a successful sprint. In sprint planning, the product increment is defined and estimated so the team can get ready to work on the sprint goal from day one. In RefineM's webinar, learn how to put together an effective Sprint Planning Meeting and carry out the activities necessary to get your team ready for the sprint.
“Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion” – Cyril Northcote Parkinson - A brilliant satirical essay published on November 19, 1955 in The Economist magazine begins with this quote that is so often seriously called law. That is not a law, and no work is required to occupy all the time allotted to it. In this webinar we are going to discuss some ways to beat the so called law and deliver products faster.
As project managers, we strive to learn from our past experiences, and we guide and teach others to do the same. We leverage approaches such as lessons learned to fine-tune the methodology, all to make each project better than the last, and sometimes we succeed. However, when navigating the domain of the unpredictable, these traditional lessons learned often “come up short” for advice, hence the need for a different type of lesson that I call “strategic lessons learned.”
We have witnessed the dawn of a new era of advancing technology. In the mid-1990s, fundamental research exploded and placed the foundation for advancement as well as the commercialization of products. That was history and now the creation of another technology race, somewhat like what we experienced during the Internet era, but moving faster and larger in terms of potential $$$ dollars.

This transition plan provides the resources supporting production the required information they will need to support the solution when deployed into the production environment. This documentation will provide the operational support resources the detail to facilitate the following: monitor and support in production and minimize outages and their negative affect on the business; obtain role-specific education; triage, troubleshoot and resolve an incident.
This data model represents a simple approach to creating a project management database. It was designed in a very popular open source database, but it can be incorporated into any database.
El código es la firma de un desarrollador en un proyecto de software, y no todos los desarrolladores cumplen las reglas de los buenos estándares de codificación. Asegúrese de que su equipo de desarrollo deje un legado de codificación que no solo implemente la aplicación en cuestión, sino que pueda ser entendido por otros y mantenido durante futuros ciclos de desarrollo.

In the quest of software excellence, IT organizations try various approaches across different phases of an application's lifecycle. However, two areas that are often neglected are requirements management and testing.
What are some of the fundamental building blocks required in software projects? Things that can help position teams to adapt to changes quickly (including implementing the latest tech trends) and ultimately add value to business?
Security foundations for a project should be strongly laid in the initiation phase, preferably when the project charter is created and signed to document all possible risks, threat vectors and security loopholes, and should include conceivable remediation measures. Internal, external and technology-related risk are examined in alignment with project management processes.
Even when engineering teams follow best practices and work on incorporating security requirements into software products, companies still see an influx of reported issues. Keep these tips in mind.
Project bugs and the forecasting of progress can be complex. An Excel spreadsheet can be employed to gauge the progress of the testing and resolution teams. Using this simplistic method in conjunction with test-estimation techniques can help the project manager determine the completion date for testing efforts.
There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into defining and completing an end-of-life cycle for every software product. It also requires a skilled program/project manager. Here are some recommendations to help facilitate this process.
Business analysis that precedes system implementation is one of the key factors influencing overall project success. The goal of the analysis is to elicit requirements on the solution and provide inputs for their prioritization.
A program map is a diagramming technique used for showing the relationship between various components (usually operations and project-type activities) of a program and program events plotted against time. Program maps, when properly constructed, can convey a lot of information that stakeholders can easily absorb.
Disruptive technology is more than just one of the latest buzzword terms, it’s something that will change project management. Are we returning to project managers who have to be IT experts?
In school, this practitioner was taught to think about the “5Ws and H” when writing. He applied the same principle to developing and executing beta programs—which improved efficiency. Keep these basics in mind for your next testing endeavor.
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.
