Group Project General Description
project assignment that will be completed over several weeks according to the course schedule using an agile approach (Scrum) with one two-week sprint.
A multitude of methodologies and tools for project management have emerged from foundational practices. Some are comprehensive and refer to whole systems for conducting projects, while others are tied more closely to particular rituals and tools to be used in a larger system for project management.
In this assignment, you will develop a one-page brief about one of the following project management topics –Kanban, Scrumban, Extreme programming (XP), PRINCE2, Lean, Agile Unified Process (AUP), DSDM(formally known as Dynamic System Development Method), Crystal and Six Sigma. You will be able to sign up to a group on Canvas on a first-come first-served basis. Topics may be limited or expanded depending on class size to ensure group sizes of 4-5 members.
Based on your one-page brief, you will walk your classmates through the key points in a recorded, audio-visual presentation. Your recorded presentation will be shared on Canvas and everyone will be expected to view all other groups’ presentations and post comments and questions, which the presenting group will be expected to answer.
The brief should cover the following:
- What are the origins?
- What are the key terms and vocabulary associated with it?
- Is it a system, a methodology, or something else?
- Who uses it? Where or in what industries is it common?
- What rituals, artifacts, or tools do we need to use it?
- Where can we find high-quality resources about what this is and how to implement it?
Your verbal presentation should last about three minutes and give your classmates the most essential information to describe the assigned topic.
I will grade your written brief, looking for completeness with respect to the bulleted questions above. Since you have to limit yourself to one page, being concise and clear in what you write is essential. Omitting content because you ran out of space is not acceptable. You may need to consider using diagrams, tables, etc. to save space. Landscape or portrait orientation is accepted.
