WebnLearn: Project Talk – The Live Web-Radio Talk Show from MPUG – “Who Say’s You Can’t Do Agile?” Agile Project Management Using Microsoft Project

Agile project management methodologies (such as Scrum, Extreme Programming and others) are based on process-centric and iterative development rather than a traditional waterfall approach.  Some of the key characteristics of an agile project include a living backlog, burn-down charts, frequent communication, and short-cycle delivery of project outputs that don’t typically lend themselves to traditional MS Project scheduling techniques.  But in this edition of Project Talk, we’ll show you the techniques and tips on how to use MS Project to effectively manage projects in the new frontier of Agile Project Management!

Project Talk is an interactive ‘radio show’ and web-session with real-time demonstrations of common project management and scheduling issues and how to address them using Microsoft Project and other tools.

Project Talk is sponsored by PM Providers.
