    eXtreme Programming (XP) Basics

    One key XP assumption is that a unified client viewpoint exists. When correct XP is productive. Otherwise it is risky at best.

    “No Big Design Up Front” and “The simplest thing that could possibly work” philosophy. Critics claim this results in constant re-designing as requirements emerge.

    Extreme Programming Refactored: The Case Against XP by Matt Stephens and Doug Rosenberg argues that XP's practices are interdependent and because few organizations adopt all of them, XP fails entirely.

    LSD’s only other ceremony is Customer Feedback.It is an ad hoc, mostly informal, ceremony that can be

    held as often as hourly where the Developer and Customer meet and see, test and use the system changes to decide if they solve the problem or need additional fine-tuning.

    Kanban Basic Practices Overview

    • Kanban’s “core practices” are referred to as: • Visualize• Limit Work in Progress • Manage Flow• Make Process Policies Explicit• Implement Feedback Loops• Improve Collaboratively, Evolve Experimentally

    These core practices aren’t carved in stone as Marcus Hammarberg and Joakim Sunden state in their book Kanban in Action.

  • 8/2/2018

    33

    65

    • RolesUnlike other Agile Frameworks that prescribe roles Kanban makes existing roles and responsibilities explicit and visible so they can be improved.

    Kanban seeks to be minimally invasive using visualization tools to catalyze incremental changes to existing roles and responsibilities when the Team decides it is necessary.

    PMI-ACP® Exam Prep SeminarModule 7: Kanban Basic Practices Deep Dive

    Kanban Basic Practices Overview

    66

    Kanban Workflow

    • Visualize the Workflow• It is not important that work fit in predefined categories.• It is very important that it flows! • Arbitrarily fracturing work to fit a predefined time

    sequence has a negative impact on work completion.• Having proper process flow has a positive impact on defect

    reduction and total throughput.• The goal is to visualize the workflow as it actually takes

    place now, then incrementally improve it over time.• Best practice is “low-tech, high-touch.”

    Hybrid Project Management Basics

    • Hybrid projects are managed with a combination of Traditional and Agile practices or with a combination of practices from multiple Agile frameworks.

    • Hybrid Project Management is an Agile Framework where a selected combination of techniques and practices, including those from one or more Agile Frameworks, are used to manage projects in order to best meet the needs of the organization and customer.

    • Hybrid fills the absence of two key elements required for scalability in every Agile Framework. They are budgeting and sophisticated scheduling.

    37

    73

    Hybrid Roles

    • Hybrid applies any useful convention from other defined Agile Frameworks to structure roles and responsibilities.

    • Hybrid does not prescribe roles or describe a new or different set of them.

    • Hybrid tailors roles to the needs of the Team and the Organization. The Team decides the roles and responsibilities that are necessary.

    PMI-ACP® Exam Prep SeminarModule 8: Hybrid Project Management Deep Dive

    74

    Hybrid Workflow

    PMI-ACP® Exam Prep SeminarModule 8: Hybrid Project Management Deep Dive

    • Hybrid includes whatever enables delivery of desirable results while everything else gets excluded.

    • Tailoring the workflow practices can be at the team-level, which is within the focus of this class.

    • It can also be at a higher business level.

    Hybrid Ceremonies

    PMI-ACP® Exam Prep SeminarModule 8: Hybrid Project Management Deep Dive

    • Hybrid includes whatever enables the system to deliver optimized results while everything else gets excluded.

    • Hybrid’s only unique ceremonies focus on budgeting and sophisticated scheduling.

    • One highly recommended best practice is to use Earned Value Management (EVM).

    • EVM’s core assumption – only counting work that is completed (Done-Done) – aligns exactly with Agile Project Management.
