Abstract

This presentation takes a close look at Agile projects from the Project Manager's point of view. It builds on many of the techniques introduced in Hudson’s 2013 presentation, “Agile in Financial Services - A Framework in Focus,” and offers an in-depth look at the required activities and resource needs for a PM to be successful in an Agile world. Importantly, it is based on recent real world experience following the successful completion of a large scaleweb development project using the SCRUM framework comprised of 18 2-week Sprints over 9 months, 3000+ code components delivered, over 3200 widely disbursed users, and $1.8 Million spent to date. This  presentation is an up-close retrospective on what factors make an Agile Development effort successful and highlights some important considerations for anyone who is thinking of making the transition to Agile.

 Presentation topics:

  • Retrospective - a look back on “A Framework  in Focus”
  • People - the Agile Team
  • Project Planning
  • Execution and Monitoring

Topic: From a drop to the river – the evolution of some Scrummy Stuff!

Is it SCRUM or Scrum? A Methodology or a Framework? Is the Scrum Master needed at the Daily Scrum? What happened to velocity?

 This talk will shed some light into the evolution and history of some of these. Whether this is a trip down memory lane, or some tidbits on Scrum, you don’t want to miss this one!
