It Always Takes Longer Than You Think (Even If You Think It Will Take Longer Than You Think) [B1]


This workshop will provide hints and tips on project management and how to prevent time scale slippage in software development projects.
The session will not focus of major development methodologies (SSADM, UML, DSDM, Extreme Programming, etc.) but on a collection of practical, real-world techniques and lessons from 15 years of software development in Local Government, private industry and higher education.
The primary audience will be those who may be new to leading project developments (suppliers) or people commissioning software development (customers).

Learning Outcomes:

At the end of the session participants will be aware of techniques to identify and/or prevent development schedule slippage.
