In Milestone One, you will select the scenario that you will use for your final project and review the various approaches to project management. You will submit an information paper targeted for the staff of the Program Management Office (PMO) of your scenario organization.
Choose one of the three case studies presented in Chapters 19, 20, and 21 in your textbook. Here is an overview of each case study:
Chapter 19: Case Study – Valpak
“Valpak’s ability to utilize technology to transform their business is a very significant factor in their business success, and Valpak’s IT group is an integral part of the business transformation and growth of the company. To compete with the quickly changing digital savings marketplace, Valpak transitioned the entire IT organization to agile Scrum/Kanban process with two-week sprint delivery cycles. They embraced this change and quickly adapted.”
Chapter 20: Case Study – Harvard Pilgrim Health Care
“HPHC developed an incremental and iterative approach – the Scrum framework for an agile transformation across the whole company. All projects associated with this major initiative, called the IT strategy, were, by default, to move to an agile development methodology. The new approach that was developed was a hybrid of Scrum at the team level and a more plan-driven approach at the enterprise level to provide program/project management of the overall effort.”
Chapter 21: Case Study – General Dynamics UK
“Due to the nature of the government contracting environment that General Dynamics, UK has to operate in, projects have to work within two key constraints, time and costs, where other agile methods don’t always have this. This case study illustrates how a company can successfully develop a hybrid agile approach that blends together elements of a plan-driven approach for managing time and cost constraints and still provide flexibility to their customers.”
