About the Presentation

Lean & Agile Project Management: For Large-Scale Programs and Projects

Dr. David F. Rico will present a new model for managing high-risk, time sensitive research and development 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.  Included in this presentation will be a brief survey of poplar lean and agile project management approaches, a step-by-step methodology, and the mechanisms for scaling the lean and agile project management model to a large-scale, distributed project.  

Dr. Rico will illustrate basic, burn-up/burn-down, 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).  Late-breaking development in the use of Lean/Kanb and concept for scaling agile methods and enterprise-level transformation will be discussed.  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.
