What did project management look like in 1998, and how has it evolved since? And what will it look like 20 years into the future? What do you see? What are the processes? How are we thinking about projects?
What went wrong? If you got everything right along the way and the change effort still faces problems, chances are you are not communicating effectively. In this session, we'll explore how communication influences change projects.

Launch Trajectory – Why Integrating Definition and Execution Is Critical to Development Project, Program and Portfolio Success
It isn't easy to make exact copies of even a simple product, but at least you begin that effort knowing what "done" looks like. Development introduces a special kind of challenge – you only learn what "done" looks like at the end. The critical path for execution becomes dependent upon the critical path for definition and vice versa. The development path can be thought of as a part "altitude" you wish to attain and part "distance" you must travel to get there. We'll use this powerful analogy to explore why development outcomes vary so widely, why Agile methods are essential, and to help you plot the optimum launch trajectory for any given effort.
