PM Community Of Practice (PMCOP) Meeting: Managing Agile Projects

Session Overview

The next Project Manager Community of Practice Meeting will be held on June 17th at the Huxley Theater. The session will be the third in a series of meetings that will provide an overview of major New York State projects and will focus on managing Agile Projects.

The New York State Roadway Inventory System (RIS) continues to be a high-priority project for the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). The RIS web application is the primary tool for data management for the Highway Data Services Bureau (HDSB) within NYSDOT. In order to accomplish the RIS business goals the DOT needed to employ an agile development approach to the project. Pat Guariglia from COMSYS will review how DOT varied their standard PM approach to manage the RIS project and will share lessons that were learned along the way. The RIS project won the NYS Forum's 2007-2008 Best Practices Award for Management.

The New York Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) was charged with developing an Agile methodology in order to more quickly address business needs and provide value to the organization's stakeholders. To accomplish this goal the OTDA developed a new System Development Lifecycle (SDLC) with a focus on agile projects and iterative development which is currently being applied to a pilot project. Michele von Linden, Rick Ryan and Brian Duncan from OTDA will review how the organization has developed and applied the new SDLC, along with tips for organizations that are facing similar challenges.

This is a great opportunity to learn about current New York State efforts in applying Project Management techniques to agile projects!
