7:00 to 8:30 Main Presentation by Don Wilson
8:30 onwards Q and A
The main topic for the evening Agile Requirements Management is about mitigating risk and the trade-offs we can make early in the process while we are planning.
While Agile improves many components of software delivery, one constant struggle for development is being able to accurately discern what the customer wants. This discussion will address common pitfalls in the requirements management cycle.
During this time we will define risks and several strategies to mitigate these risks to improve the ability to deliver the desired results and the value an agile team brings to the organization.
Our speaker will be Don Wilson PMP, CSM, CSPO, Managing Director Revolutionary Performance Management, Inc. As the Managing Director of Revolutionary Performance Management, Inc., Don Wilson has analyzed, planned, and implemented technology strategies for top tier companies such as Sprint, Marriott, AARP, and most recently the American Chemical Society for 16 years. He is a Certified Project Management Professional, a Certified Scrum Product Owner and a Certified Scrum Master. He has a reputation for reviving “troubled” projects, achieving successful outcomes, and exceeding expectations. He is known as the “project-whisperer” for his ability to navigate effortlessly between business and technical groups to identify unspoken requirements.
Don earned his BS in Computer Science from North Carolina State University and immediately jumped into solving business problems using technology. He spent the early part of his career with Ernst and Young, and later with Deloitte, planning and implementing multimillion dollar software packages for Fortune 500 companies.
While making progress possible with software is a passion for Don, his spare time is spent on the sidelines of his sons’ soccer games, on the aisle of his daughter’s ballet and violin recitals, or at a blogging event for his wife. He spends his remaining time, if there is any, golfing fishing or watching football.
This is a popular topic for everyone involved in IT projects, and we are making it a joint meeting with BDPAphilly
