Gantt Charts are a fine mechanism for planning projects that have well bounded activities with a clean start and end point, and with understood dependencies and sequences. But in the non-linear, sometimes chaotic world of Product Development, Gantt Charts can be inadequate, cumbersome, or even misleadingly inaccurate. In the session, we will explore an alternative using mechanism of Agile product development - a Backlog of value to deliver with estimations of size (effort) and a reality-based Burndown that shows a plan with visible assumptions. Together these mechanism provide an effective way to plan, track, and replan a complex Product Development effort.

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.

Project management is not an exact science as much as we want it to be. People are dynamic. They change hour to hour while projects last months or years. As a leader, project managers have to deal with these dynamic individuals on a daily basis. There is not a science that has come up with an equation to solve the mental mysteries of team members.

Project implementation is required to reach the desired outcomes in business. You develop a WBS, apply project management systems, particularly EVM and then settle down with project monitoring and control processes to reach the end result - but is that enough?
