What's Next....

I am currently working on my next article comparing the different methodologies available for IT projects.   Bascially taking PRINCE2, RUP, Agile/Scrum and the PMBOK outlining their differences as well as their similarities.

Over my 20 year carrier I have been fortunate to work and gain considerable experience with all of these methodologies. 

My biggest concern is the miss-application or miss-interpretation of these methodologies which I had seen quite a few times.  Usually when I am called in to “rescue” a project that has spiralled out of control.

For example, many organizations that try to adapt to Agile will take the iterative approach while still holding on to the old principles.  Concentrating more on the timelines & task lists rather than focusing on scope and quality of the deliverable.  While others take the “let’s just do it” attitude with no preparation at all.

My hope is to allow the readers to compare and choose the methodology that will work for them the best.  For those who are thinking of switching, are the beginning stages or are having trouble adapting, my objective is to provide a guide through the transition.

While the information is readily available the goal is to provide a clear visual guide that will be simple to understand.  This is already proving to be a laborious task.  For this reason it will be a few weeks before you see it posted.  So please check back from time to time and check to see when it’s completed.

If there is anything you that would be of interest to you regarding this subject please send me your comments.
