SNEAK PREVIEW: Putting Agile to the Test

Agile-Best-PracticeIf you have been keeping up with the PMINEO Event’s schedule, no doubt you have noticed that we are in for a real treat!  PMINEO’s very own Board Member, Todd Jones, PMP, PMI-ACP is to be our Featured Speaker at the upcoming 9/21/17 chapter meeting.  Additional information about Todd can be found on his LinkedIn profile. Todd has also been a speaker at the PMI Global Convention and STPCon.  As a frequent featured speaker at other PMI Chapter events, Todd is fast emerging as a powerful thought leader in the project management industry.

His topic at the upcoming 9/21/17 Chapter Meeting is Putting Agile to the Test, A Case Study for Test Agility in a Large IT Project




A downloadable copy of Todd’s recent article of the same name originally published at the PMI Global Congress – North America is found below.  We recommend it to you for your consideration as the article is definitely worth the read.

A summary of both the article and Todd’s presentation can be found in the abstract immediately below.


Agile best practices can be applied to a variety of situations. Most prevalent is IT projects, often for software development. But can you apply agile to a ‘portion’ of a software implementation project? This presentation will provide an overview of a successful example where agile techniques were applied to a multi-year, multi-million-dollar IT program – specifically to the testing phase. 

After examining this case study, you will have a greater appreciation for the testing complexity of a large-scale software implementation as well as techniques that can be applied quickly to your current project.

  • Scenario (what was the scope?)
  • Challenges (how did we get here?)
  • Approach (why was agile chosen? what was used to monitor progress?)
  • Benefits (what did we do right?)
  • Lessons learned (what could have been done differently?)
