We all struggle with the concept of uncertainty, but it does not deter us from trying from planning the unplannable. This webinar will focus on developing project teams with the ability to share and collaborate turning ambiguity from a deficit to a vehicle that allows your assignee's to produce added-value deliverables. We start this webinar by describing the current situation in how disjointed teams directly contribute to project failure. The effectiveness of a games model, through use of project-based simulation, is then characterized. The basis of this webinar is then illustrated through a number of situational real-life exercises performed. Lastly, we discuss the expectations of this approach, listing some of the lurking pitfalls of this method.

Drunken PM

by Dave Prior

Drunken Boxing for Project Managers “The main feature of the drunkard boxing is to hide combative hits in drunkard-like, unsteady movements and actions so as to confuse the opponent. The secret of this style of boxing is maintaining a clear mind while giving a drunken appearance.” Yeah... just like that… but with network diagrams and burndown charts… and a wee bit less vodka.

Requirements in Agile

white paper
by Joy Beatty Candase Hokanson

When companies move to an agile Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), they often remove the processes and analysis of their waterfall SDLC because, as the Agile Manifesto puts it, “They value individual and interactions over processes and tools.” Some of the rigor should be removed – waterfall processes can get bogged down with gates and sign-offs. However, caution must be exercised to not go too far against processes and analysis and rely just upon backlogs and user stories. Requirements and the analysis that leads to those requirements are just as essential in an agile project as they are in a waterfall project. The difference lies in how much requirements analysis is completed and the timing of it.
