ASQ Seattle: Methodology in Recovering Projects

Date: Thursday, November 12, 2009 5:45 pm - 8:45 pm
Duration: 3 Hours
Most organizations have only one methodology that they use for running projects. However, most organizations perform many different types of projects—deploying hardware, developing new products, deploying off-the-shelf software and upgrading existing tools. Some methodologies are much better for specific styles of projects. Therefore, the organization needs a portfolio of processes. Phasing, Critical Chain and Agile methodologies all have valuable attributes that can be applied in specific areas. This presentation covers: An overview of the value of Critical Chain and Agile methodologies; Benefits of phasing; Situations where one methodology gets in trouble; The way a Guidance Team helps avoid problems; Setting customer expectations early. At the end of the presentation the attendee will understand how the methodology effects a project and steps they, or their organization, can take to use various methodologies to avert project failure. This is a one-hour presentation.
