Project Management Should be Boring!

A session at Open Source Bridge 2009

Thursday 18th June, 2009

3:50pm to 4:35pm (PST)

Many software projects suffer from long release schedules, feature freezes, painful QA processes, awkward merges, version number debates, backwards compatibility paralysis -- oh, and customers who aren't completely delighted.

Project management doesn't have to be this way.

Several real-world projects have solved these problems with a combination of iteration, refactoring, continual improvement, reflection, and low-ceremony processes. The solutions aren't all simple or easy, but they're easy to understand, and they're within your grasp. This talk will tell you what's possible and recommend concrete steps to improve your project management.
