Agile Development & Project Management training courses from CourseMonster | Coursemonster – CMI – United Kingdom | Project Management Insights | Scoop.it

Over recent years the use of Agile for managing projects and development has increased dramatically, with Gartner predicting that by the end of 2012 Agile will be used in 80% of software development projects.

 

Scrum, DSDM Atern, (eXtreme Programming (XP) and Lean have been used by development teams for years with great success. Agile Project Management goes beyond these techniques and naturally aligns with both PINCE2 and ITIL, as well as complementing quality processes such as ISO90001 and CMMI.

What The Hell Is Project Management, Anyway?

What The Hell Is Project Management, Anyway? | Project Management Insights | Scoop.it

Project management seems like a classic chicken-and-egg career conundrum: How do you prove you’re adept at managing projects if you haven’t worked as a project manager? Beyond that, what does project management really entail, and how is it different from, you know, being a manager? And what tools do the pros actually use, since there seem to be a new one released every week?


To better understand some of the managerial speak around project management, I spoke with a 20-year veteran of the field, Frank Ryle. He’s worked as an international project manager for Arup International, managed construction and operation of the first Cadbury Schweppes factory in Russia, and now trains and teaches project management. Ryle analogizes project management to a nine-hole golf metaphor in his book, Keeping Score: Project Management for the Pros, available now as an ebook and due out soon in paperback.

 

In a phone interview, Ryle was, well, frank, honest, and eager to clear the clouds of vagary away from a field he’s worked in for most of his adult life.
