Presentation: Norene Kelly and Jack Polifka

  1. Since you have used Agile and Scrum, do you think it is as sophisticated for big projects software development life cycle? Do you think it’s as good as the software development life cycle? They don’t keep up with buzz words. Said it’s to make sure things don’t be removed from the road map.

My response: I don’t think the presenters answered this question very well and it’s a little disconcerting that they don’t seem to know the difference in pretty basic and well know project management methodologies. Here is a link to the term software development life cycle (it’s not a new term) http://ift.tt/1dcWZ9Q or – They are both fairly ‘sophisticated’ but the intention of using Agile/Scrum vs. say waterfall may be different. I’ve worked on multiple extremely large projects that have used one, both, or a mixture of these methodologies. If the student who asked this question would like to learn more, I recommend checking out books online 24×7 as a free resource or doing some PMP/Agile training. Many designers are often overlooked for lead roles because of lack of training in risk management and program management. If, we as designers would like to advocate more for our roles, taking the lead in the project or program management fronts is a great way to do this. It adds credibility to the role and means the a UX designer will have to be in all IT meetings for a project.
