Plan Now to Attend February Events !!!!!
PMOLIG Meeting 02/02/10:
Often management familiar with the waterfall approach to software development does not understand the differences in reporting and executing an agile project. They allow agile practices, but expect waterfall deadlines and progress reports. This "iterfall" approach is confusing and counterproductive to many project managers, taking the focus away from building software and putting it into what seems like irrelevant documenting. Al Cline will share a simple technique for mapping the waterfall approach to agile practices. A simple project work plan, although not typically waterfall, can be done once (even in Excel) and satisfy waterfall managers while clarifying the roles of the agile team. Reporting can be done as and when waterfall managers expect it, and yet not get in the way of agile execution speed.
Date: 02/02/10
Topic : A PMO question - Waterfall or Agile Methodology?:  How to use both for winning project performance
Speaker: TBD
Location : TBD
