BREAKING NEWS…blogging at NYC SPIN
February 13, 2007
Folks interested in Michael Mah’s NYC SPIN (Software Productivity Improvement Network) might want to know some important facts:
1) The renowned software research/analysist guru Ed Yourdon (“Death March,” “Byte Wars,” the recent “Outsourcing: Competing in the Global Productivity Race,” etc.) will be blogging about Michael’s presentation tonight. Those who can’t attend greatly anticipate Ed’s insights!
2) Tony Hutchings (Bank of America) tells us that more than 100 people have registered for Michael’s presentation, despite the apocalyptic weather predictions.
3) Tonight, Michael is announcing an upcoming “Agile Benchmarking” webinar; despite the apparent contradiction in terms (i.e., “Agile” = “light, little formal process,” “Benchmark” = “heavy, process-oriented”), these concepts mesh remarkably well; it’s important to note that having reliable benchmarks actually increase management agility in making reliable and informed decisions. An increasing share of SLIM’s database is devoted to measuring agile projects, so look here more information on the date and how to sign up for a thought-provoking, practical Webinar on an important topic.
