Project Management White Papers

Project Management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources in such a way that these resources deliver all the work required to complete a project within defined scope, time, and cost constraints. A project is a temporary and one-time endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service. This property of being a temporary and a one-time undertaking contrasts with processes, or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent ongoing functional work to create the same product or service over-and-over again.

A Google Trends search for “BYOD” reveals it is a fairly new term, appearing in news publications for the first time in late 2011. BYOD is one part of a much larger, deeper-rooted trend: The consumerization of IT, which can be traced back to the early 2000s. Around that time, most everyone had a personal computer, which enabled them to work from home after hours – and to realize the benefits of using the devices that they had carefully chosen and were comfortable using, rather than the corporate devices their IT departments had issued them. BYOD and the consumerization of IT continued to grow as devices became cheaper and more connected. Where IT leaders were once solely concerned with reining in all the unapproved devices accessing the corporate network, a recent Intel and readwrite report that shows 49 percent of U.S. IT managers “strongly agree that BYOD improves worker productivity.” The next era of BYOD has arrived, and IT departments are thinking about it as a strategic value-ad

Agile methods have proven effective for software development and have grown in popularity across a number of software disciplines. Agile methods build capabilities using an iterative approach, as opposed to traditional approaches where requirements are defined early and designs are completed in full before a single line of code is written. Agile incrementally defines requirements with priorities, partial component designs and working systems that evolve through iterations called sprints. The question remains, however: Do the 12 agile principles apply to more than just software? Agile principles are in line with lean management’s approach. Given that, it seems as though agile principles should directly apply beyond software development. However, the answer is not straightforward, because differences between software and physical components affect how agile is applied. Let’s explore how agile can be applied in light of these differences.
