Agile as a Tool for Managing Software Risk

  • October 19, 2017

Agile development methodologies, among other benefits, provide an excellent mechanism for managing risk on software projects. This presentation will describe how Scrum can be used to mitigate three great project risks - shipping the wrong thing, shipping late, and shipping a low quality product.

Scrum is the most popular of the agile methodologies, and is used widely for software projects, as well as for many non-software projects. Instead of depending on detailed up front planning, the team provides the stakeholder with multiple opportunities to examine the product as construction progresses. The team then adjusts course based on stakeholder feedback, to give the stakeholder exactly what he or she wants.

This presentation discusses how this process works in practice, why it works, and how the various parts of the agile process come together to keep the project on track.

4 Ways to STEP UP Your Career

  • April 4, 2017

Take a deep breath. Now imagine yourself in your dream job in five years. What type of work are you doing? What are you achieving? By what metrics do you know you are successful? Can you see it? Good. Now, how do you get there? Luck? Wishing? No.

Be prepared! This is hard work. If it were easy, you would already have your dream job. During our time together, we will go through a fast paced 5-4-3 journey.

We will:

  • Detail what job you want in five years. We must clearly define what the target is in order to hit it.
  • Explore the four pillars in the house of our career to help develop a path toward our dream job. We will each work on examples to include on our resumes; accomplishments and skills we already have and those we plan to add.
  • List three action steps you will complete in the next 30 days to move you toward your five-year goal.
Bring your dreams, think big, and be ready to do the work. No one "falls" into a promotion. We make it happen.

It isn't sufficient just to want - you've got to ask yourself what are you going to do to get what you want? - Franklin D. Roosevelt
