Share Lean and Agile: Large-Scale Programs and Projects

Event Details

Dr. David F. Rico will present on Lean & Agile Project Management: For Large-Scale Programs and Projects, a new model for managing high-risk, time-sensitive R&D oriented new product development (NPD) projects with demanding customers and fast-changing market conditions.

He'll establish the context, provide a definition, and describe the value-system for Lean and Agile project management. He'll also provide a brief survey of popular Lean and Agile project management approaches, describe a step-by-step methodology, and illustrate the mechanisms for scaling the Lean and Agile project management model up to large-scale, distributed projects.

Dr. Rico will illustrate basic, burnup / burndown, cost estimating, business value, earned value management, and advanced metrics for Agile methods including real options (as well as some intriguing, high-profile Lean and Agile project management case studies).

Late-breaking concepts in the use of Lean / Kanban for scaling Agile methods up to the enterprise-level will also be discussed. This briefing has been warmly received and set attendance records for multiple Baltimore-Washington, DC-area PMI, INCOSE, and SPIN chapters and was presented at the European conference on Lean and Agile systems development.
