Join us for the March chapter meeting
When the business wants waterfall: Implementing Agile in a Phase based environment
ABSTRACT: Corporations often put processes in place that assume a waterfall approach to projects. This can put software teams in a bind. Learn how Halliburton implemented an agile-based process for software development while still allowing software projects to comply with the corporate standard waterfall process framework. It covers the specifics of how agile was mapped into the existing waterfall process, the adjustments to the framework required in order to allow agility, the challenges encountered and how they were resolved, and the value received by the corporation by adopting this approach.
Marjorie Farmer is an experienced project and program manager who has held multiple software roles in the oil industry, including developer, trainer, and software team manager, as well as program and project manager. She most recently led the design and implementation of a standard software process, based on Scrum, to be used across all Halliburton business lines. She has presented at the Agile 2004 conference, as well as VistaCon 2013 in Ho Chi Minh City
