project management

After working some 15 years with web projects I have been both service provider and customer for a large number of different projects. I've seen and tried number of different methods how to run web projects. After both success and failure I have come to realize that agile scrum can fail just as easily as traditional waterfall models do when dealing with Drupal projects.

Drupal in it's current versions can't really decide if it is a framework or a product and this creates some unique headaches for project managers and customers. To make things even more complicated most efficient project management models focus on having the team physically in one room and many companies are either virtual or at least geographically split in multiple locations.

In this session I will speak about our experiences on different ways of doing Drupal projects and present our current best practices for successful projects. There are no silver bullets, but many practical ideas both small and large. I will also challenge the audience to share their experiences, tips and ideas.
