PREMIUM webinar

Meetings are a necessary part of every project manager’s (and agilists’) day. However, as important as these events are (yes, meetings are events!), they are frequently poorly run and leave both meeting leaders and attendees dissatisfied. This can be detrimental to the project because of inherent miscommunication or non-communication, to say nothing of the reputation of the project leader. In this session, attendees will learn the fundamentals of good meeting management starting with having a good agenda to being “large and in charge” to dealing with meeting goblins – those nasty personalities that sometimes emerge during meetings.

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.
