Agile Project Management Planning and Budgetting

Summary

Agile methods are empirical: plan, do, evaluate how it went, plan the next thing. When these cycles are very short, learning happens quickly and teams can move into high-performance mode. But discipline is necessary - planning must happen continuously to feed the fast-moving team. For 80 minutes David Hussman looks at the Agile practices around planning a project, a release, and an iteration.

David Hussman has mentored and coached agile teams all over the world for the past five years. Software developer in a variety of domains from digital biometrics to education, leader at workshops and speaker at conferences, he has contributed to several books ("Managing Agile Projects" and "Agile in the Large") and is the co-owner of SGF Software which helps companies transition to Agile.

    This is a fantastic presentation - on a topic that I think people tend to be the most confused. Thanks David!

    Starts up nicely, and quite interesting, but at the end of it becomes a little boring, but still a nice presentation.

    ps: that white dot scared me :)

    I agree, it kinda gets boring towards end. Or may be I was just too tired (which I was) when I watched it, or they were too many metrics involved ;-)

  • great overview

    Loved the pos example as I work on a pos system ;-) really great examples of the practical day to day benefits of using the disciplines promoted by Scrum and XP. I have been using Scrum/XP in the same way and find the most difficult concept to get over to people is to let go of having a plan for the whole project and to get their heads around adaptive or continous planning, will use this video to try and get some of the concepts through to these guys...greatttt
