Monthly Program Meeting – 2 Talks

Ending the Death March

Alan Cooper, Cooper

Software construction experts agree: Your software project has a 50 percent chance of failure. The other 50 percent suffer what is commonly known as a "Death March," where the project can only be completed on schedule by jettisoning half of the functionality, most of the flexibility, and all of the user friendliness. What's more, the programmers are exhausted, the managers are frustrated, and the users are reduced to quiet weeping. In Alan Cooper's talk, he will show how executives can take control of their technical efforts and vanquish the Death March. As usual, his comments will provide you with insights and techniques that are as effective as they are unexpected.
