Topic Teasers Vol. 115: Project QuickPlan

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: Maybe I’m a project manager, or maybe a ScrumMaster? All I know is that my organization is using a form of agile, and I think implementing the most important parts of it.

For the necessary communication, I do get to sit with them and ask questions, which is good. However, without my familiar processes and paperwork for traditional projects, I don’t quite know what to ask or how to get the proper sign-offs. How can I make sure I’m taking the proper information back to my team?
