Have You Ever Worked on a Project Like This?

If you haven't managed such an unwieldy, unpredictable effort yet, odds are extremely high that you will face one at some point in your career. When you do, "I don't know yet" will only get you so far. Eventually, you'll need an appropriate way to plan and manage the work despite all the uncertainties—a flexible way to manage an uncertain project and still keep management happy.

You can still have a plan with meaningful dates and deadlines, even if your project doesn't conform to neat, predictable waterfall models. Spiral development, time-boxing, and other iterative methods can help your team close in on the project's end point even when it's lost in the fog of risk and uncertainty. This session explores these iterative methods, so you and your team can face uncertainty with confidence.
