PMI Corvallis Lunch: Methodology’s Role in Project Success

Date: Friday, February 21, 2014 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Duration: 1 Hour 30 Minutes

Presentation Description:

Most organizations have only one methodology that they apply to all projects. However, they perform a multitude of different types of projects—deploying hardware, developing new products, implementing off-the-shelf software, and upgrading existing tools. Methodologies are much like tools in a toolbox and cannot be applied to any situation. Therefore, any organization with a portfolio of projects needs a portfolio of processes. Phasing, Critical Chain, and Agile methodologies all have valuable attributes to apply to different areas of a project.
This presentation covers:
• Key concepts of Critical Chain and Agile methodologies.
• Specific areas of each methodology that help projects.
• Benefits of phasing.
• The value of using multiple methodologies in an organization.
Multiple case studies are used to underscore how they have been used in the past.
By the end of the presentation, attendees will understand how methodology affects a project and the steps they, or their organization, can take to use various methodologies to improve project success.
