Deliver Projects On Time, Every Time

Ken Whitaker shares pragmatic techniques to help project managers and software development leaders put into practice innovative scheduling techniques, make consistent customer-centric decisions, reduce project risk, quickly negotiate with product owners the most important project scope, and transition teams to become more agile. Ken shares revealing statistical data on how waterfall is simply not suited for modern-day adaptive software development projects. With fellow participants, you’ll spend time performing a “Scrum walkabout” to get the idea of just how an agile project really works. These best practices are presented to motivate your team to deliver projects on time, every time. Although this tutorial doesn’t incorporate intensive role-play, we’ll have lively interaction that will incorporate lessons learned from actual case studies and attendees’ project experiences. Take away powerful, yet simple, ways to bridge the gap between PMI’s PMBOK® Guide and agile.
