Managing Iterative and Incremental Development

Tuesday 25 March 2003


Jennifer Stapleton FBCS, Director of Consulting at Empower Dynamics Ltd

Southampton Institute, Herbert Collins Building, HC024

Organised by the BCS PROMS-G (South) with the BCS Quality SIG and the Hampshire Branch.

Projects that use an incremental and iterative lifecycle need a different focus of planning, monitoring and reporting from those using a traditional, waterfall approach. This talk will show how the Framework for Business-Centred Development (DSDM) tackles the management issues of delivering a solution exactly on the date agreed at the start of the project and minimal budget variation. The major focus of management moves away from time and people (which are taken as a given!) to what is actually going to be delivered.

Jennifer Stapleton FBCS is Director of Consulting at Empower Dynamics Limited. Her personal consultancy is primarily focused on assisting clients in developing and maintaining effective approaches to project and programme management. From 1996 to 2002, she was Vice-President, Technical of BCS.

The functions are open to all, CPD assessed, free of charge and require no prior booking.
