Location: University Club - 10th Floor of the Fifth / Third Building - 111 Lyon St NW # 1025, Grand Rapids

Speaker:  Jeff Totten, Ph. D., PMP

Topic:  Critical Success Factors for Agile Project Management in Non Software-Related Product Development Teams

Description: 
The use of agile project management methods in the software development industry is well established and revealed. The purpose of this research study was to understand whether agile project management methods (Scrum in particular) used successfully in the software industry are also being used in full, or in part, in non-software development industries when managing product development projects. Using an online survey instrument, data was collected from 329 non-software/IT global practitioners to identify in what industries and work functions agile project management methods are used, to find the independent variables that have a significant relationship with project success, and to determine reasons why agile project management methods may not be used in non-software development industries.

PDU Info: 1 PDU (0.5 Strategic and Business Management/0.5 Techinical)
