High Performance Projects
Unsuccessful projects dominate the landscape of IT projects by a wide margin. Retrospectives are common occurrences and the advent of newer project delivery techniques hasn't proven to be the miracle cure. Some projects have lemon written all over them at the time of arrival and others just wither away for want of proper care and feeding.
This talk introduces you to a variety of project problems and how to address them. You will learn techniques that will get you off on the right foot and habits that will ensure smooth progress throughout the project's lifecycle. The net result will be a project that hits its target and a customer that is happy.
