Abstract: Are you looking to deliver your projects with high quality, higher customer satisfaction, increased project control, reduced risk and faster ROI and are unable to decide whether Agile or Waterfall methodologies are right for you? In this talk we will discuss how to align your initiatives with your organization’s strategy by defining a problem using the Diamond E framework, and how to execute an initiative by choosing the right methodology for execution (Agile, Waterfall or Hybrid). We will also discuss how organizations can achieve their objective of having complete visibility from defining strategic initiatives to execution of those strategic initiative; from top level in the organization all the way to bottom.
The theory will be followed by an actual case study for one of the largest telecom operators in the Middle East and how it was able to launch a world class marketplace within a record time of 9 months.
