Presentation title: Managing software development in a funky manner

Abstract:
Since 80% of IT projects fail, the IT sector is facing a serious issue. We need new “funky” methodologies to ensure the success and clients’ satisfaction. In this session we will point out the potential problems we are faced with during the project: project specification, deadline delays, exceeding the budget, not meeting the expectations, concept changes, new requests etc. and their consequences. There is an undeniable advantage of the new Agile development approach over the traditional ones in solving these issues. But how to implement new methodologies like SCRUM,  BDD, TDD, FDD and Extreme programming to make the client more involved and in the end more satisfied? Just implementing Agile methods within your organization won’t help. Based on best practices and our own experience we will  focus on the solution: bridging the gap between IT and business people.
