Agile Transformation—It’s About the People

The Agile Manifesto declared independence from constraining, process-centric software development methodologies.  The Manifesto advocated for a product-focused, team-centric approach.  As Agile has moved mainstream, it has spawned its own industry of methodologies and tools.  Organizations embracing Agile must remember that people are the key to its success.

Abstract:

Do Private Sector Small To Medium Sized, Entrepreneurial General Contractors Comply With ANSI 748? If yes, how, if not, why not?

 ABSTRACT

Purpose of this paper:

This paper was written based on the occasionally heated debate debating the differences between the way the US Government uses earned value management compared against the way earned value management is used by small to medium sized entrepreneurial contractors.

Design/methodology/approach:

Behavioral Profiling of "Successful" Project Managers

 ABSTRACT

Purpose of this paper:

Practical Look at How Private Sector Entrepreneurial Contractors Use Earned Value

ABSTRACT

Purpose of this paper:

Much of the focus on Earned Value revolves around how governments use it, more specifically, how the US Government uses it. Given that the US Government at the Federal and State levels are technical bankrupt, should we be benchmarking what they are doing as if it were a “best practice” or would we be better off to see how the entrepreneurial private sector uses Earned Value to find out if there are any differences which might help other governments?
