New projects, big or small are massive change events potentially affecting people with diverse perspectives, needs, wants and organizational policy/process that cost tens of millions of dollars. Every enterprise will recognize common elements from this theme. Enterprises begin change events both big and small and always with good intentions. No project ever starts to prove some activity can fail or that people are not competent. Too often there is much activity with little effect on the key areas that must be addressed. People, process, systems and technology (in that order) are the poles around which all Planning and execution occur. By addressing these five areas and defining key measures you will have a more impactful and lasting project/change management program.
How can you structure your large, in-house software developers to make agility flourish? Traditionally, software development is organized into short-term project teams that draw from a pool of specialized talent. Developers often work on multiple projects simultaneously. The problem?

Moreover, jumping from project to project forces our brains to switch gears, meaning we work harder to function at a lower level.
In this talk, award-winning author Steve McConnell uses the "Four Core Influences" framework from his upcoming book, Software Engineering Essentials, to dissect published reports of software project outcomes. He demonstrates how to use sound software engineering judgment to vastly improve understanding of software project dynamics, which in turn leads to correct diagnosis of failure, more effective corrective actions for projects already underway, and a significantly improved chance of success on every project.

Because of this we need to think ahead of possible ethical dilemmas, to develop action plans and scripts.
