Chapter 17 - An introduction to agile project management. In this chapter the core principles of Agile PM are discussed and compared with traditional project management methods. A specific agile methodology called Scrum is used to describe these principles in action. The chapter concludes with a discussion of limitations and concerns.

If you were to analyze your team's performance on a typical project, you'd be surprised how much time is wasted on non-productive tasks. This hands-on guide shows you how to work more efficiently by organizing and managing projects with SharePoint 2010. You'll learn how to build a Project Management Information System (PMIS), customized to your project, that can effectively coordinate communication and collaboration among team members.
Pro Agile .NET Development with SCRUM guides you through a real-world ASP.NET project and shows how agile methodology is put into practice.
There is plenty of literature on the theory behind agile methodologies, but no book on the market takes the concepts of agile practices and applies these in a practical manner to an end-to-end ASP.NET project, especially the estimating, requirements and management aspects of a project. Pro Agile .
“Buddha” literally means awakened one, and this book is about
what it means to be awake in the way that a Buddha is awake. Of
course, it is also about project management and how to do it as well as
it can be done. But from the point of view of Zen, managing projects
is both a quest in and of itself and a vehicle for awakening. Essentially,
we are going to reveal how project management can be used as a Zen
art. In Zen there is a tradition of taking apparently mundane daily
activities and elevating them...
The traditional way to build software, used by companies big and small, is commonly known
as “The Waterfall”. There are many variants, but it typically begins with a detailed planning
phase, where the end product is carefully thought through, designed, and documented in great
detail. The tasks necessary to execute the design are determined, and the work is planned using
tools like Gantt charts and programs like Microsoft Project. The team arrives at an estimate of
how long the project will take by adding up detailed estimates of the individual steps involved.
Today’s Information Technology (IT) manager is under ever-increasing pressure to deliver results – in the form
of applications that drive improvements to the bottom line – even while IT budgets are being significantly
slashed. Meanwhile, despite the fall of the Internet economy business environments continue to change at a
rapid pace leaving many IT shops struggling to keep up with the pace of change. These changes have led to
an increased interest in agile software development methodologies with their promise of rapid delivery and
flexibility while maintaining...
This initial stage of the project also provides the project manager with opportunities to get to know the team and
help them get to know each other. The time-honored kick-off group lunch can be combined with techniques
often using in training sessions such as sharing personal and professional information with a colleague who then
makes the group introduction. In addition, the project manager should ensure that the physical workspace is
arranged in a way that facilitates collaborative activities such as pair programming and team problem solving.
It’s not surprising then that the planning-related books in the
corner of my office disagree heavily with each other. Some
focus on business strategy, others on engineering and
scheduling processes (the traditional focus of project planning),
and a few on understanding and designing for customers. But
more distressing than their disagreements is that these books
fail to acknowledge that other approaches even exist. This is
odd because none of these perspectives—business, technology,
customer—can ever exist without the others.
The best project managers aren’t just organizers – they combine business vision, communication skills, soft
management skills and technical savvy with the ability to plan, coordinate, and execute. In essence, they
are not just managers – they are leaders. While this has always been the case, agile project management
places a higher premium on the leadership skills than ever before.
For example, XP teams create and monitor their own iteration plans in collaboration with the customers. The
customer creates stories (features) and prioritizes them based on business value.
What then becomes critical is that project and programme managers and senior management make
efficient and effective use of the services and capabilities of the PMO. And finally it is important to
define the metrics by which the performance of the PMO will be assessed and evaluated, both
directly (the effectiveness of its services) and indirectly (the improvements it enables in project,
programme and portfolio decision making and outcomes).
But that is not the end of the story.
This book is for anyone who manages, works on, or is interested in
projects, whether they are certified project management professionals
(PMPs) or not. Most people who manage projects in the world are not
professional project managers. Many are untrained and have little or
no professional support. Some do not even know they manage proj-
ects; they just get things done. There are professionals who manage
large complex projects in global settings and incidental project manag-
ers who manage or take part in projects that are part of their normal
jobs in just about any field.
Chapter 3 – Agile software development. The objective of this chapter is to introduce you to agile software development methods. When you have read the chapter, you will: understand the rationale for agile software development methods, the agile manifesto, and the differences between agile and plan-driven development; know the key practices in extreme programming and how these relate to the general principles of agile methods; understand the Scrum approach to agile project management;...
In spite of some early success with agile methodologies, a number of factors are preventing their widespread
adoption. Agile methodology advocates often find it difficult to obtain management support for implementing
what seem like dramatic changes in application development. These methodologies require developers,
managers and users alike to change the way they work and think. For example, the XP practices of pair
programming, test-first design, continuous integration, and an on-site customer can seem like daunting
changes to implement.
The source of project ideas may come from a variety
of sources, most importantly from prospective
implementing partners (either partner governments,
non-state actors or multi-lateral or regional
development agencies). Local ownership of, and
commitment to, potential projects is a key quality
Furthermore, project ideas should be drawn from the
priorities and targets identified in the relevant
