A session description:
The talk will discuss the challenges of the increasing number of delivery approaches for organisation initiatives. This goes wider than just basic waterfall and agile methodologies, and includes change management, commissioning and any combination of the above. Each method has specific certification, terminology and evangelists/best practice ‘experts’. As a professional project manager, do I need to know them all? How do I choose what method is most appropriate? Is it my choice? What else do I need to be in place?
