About the Program
Recent studies suggest 80% of a project's success is determined by how it starts. While project chartering is not foreign to the PM community, Agile Project Chartering requires a unique skill set.
Agile Charting relies on collaboration and results; it garners on more stakeholder buy-in and fosters better alignment amoung team members. It is a tool that can ensure a project starts with a solid foundation built on common understanding and designed for success.
In this session, Dr. Ahmed Sidky, EVP of Santeon Group, will explore a variety of tools and techniques for conducting effective Agile projects and team charters. He will exhibit why effective agile chartering answers basic questions like; What is the project's goal? What are its most important aspects? Whose problem are we solving? With an aligned team and increased buy-in, a project will be more successful.
