Abstract/Description

One of the many reasons the project model is a bad fit for software development is the emphasis placed meeting time and cost criteria. This approach destroys values but without it, how can work to be guided? controlled? and governed?

The alternative is to aim for business benefit and value.

Unfortunately, benefit can be hard to define and sometimes doing the obvious thing does't maximising value, sometimes it makes sense to delay the highest value work.

In this presentation Allan Kelly will look how software development can be planning and guided development using value and how this approach fits with the #NoProjects agenda.Placeholder
