About the Program

Lean Agile Project Management

Dr. David F. Rico will give a presentation on "Lean & Agile Project Management: For Large-Scale Programs and Projects," which is a new model for managing high-risk, time-sensitive R&D-oriented new product development (NPD) projects with demanding customers and fast-changing market conditions. Dr. Rico will establish the context, provide a definition, and describe the value-system for lean and agile project management. He’ll provide a brief survey of popular lean and agile project management approaches, describe a step-by-step methodology, and illustrate the mechanisms for scaling the lean and agile project management model up to large-scale, distributed projects. Dr. Rico will illustrate basic, burnup/burndown, cost estimating, business value, earned value management, and advanced metrics for agile methods including real options (as well as some intriguing, high-profile lean and agile project management case studies). This briefing has been warmly received and set attendance records for multiple Baltimore-Washington, DC-area PMI chapters and will be presented at the European conference on lean and agile systems development.
