Organization structures in most companies today make resource management a daunting task. A lack of visibility into resource allocation and capacity, consistent prioritization and validation of actual work versus planned, contribute to this challenge.

Over 50% of IT organizations surveyed use their “best guess” when determining what capacity IT has to perform projects in a given period.

This webinar presents the fundamentals for creating and implementing a Resource Management Model using people, process and technology. A Resource Management Model is a set of processes that provide visibility, decision support and structure to effectively manage people in an organization.

Allocating resources based on availability and fit, supported by standard processes, will improve the success and predictability of projects across your organization.

COO’s, CIOs, Department VPs and Managers, PMs, Resource Managers

Come hear an actual account of agile techniques in practice! You can’t miss this!

The applications developed with agile techniques included systems organizing the production of flight critical Lithium Hydroxide air purification cartridges (used on both the Shuttle and Space Station), the Quick Disconnect hardware (used to transfer hypergolic propellants), and the Problem Reporting System (used to initiate repair on heat shield tiles after each mission).

The LiOH (Lithium Hydroxide) Laboratory produced the Environmental Control Life Support System (ECLSS) air-purification cartridges used in the Space Shuttle during flight and on the International Space Station.

These cartridges, commonly called LiOH cartridges, were a mission-critical flight element, and one of the few systems that had no backup.

There could be absolutely no exceptions in any of the processing and quality steps!

Without the LiOH air purification cartridges in active use during flight, the astronaut crew would quickly suffocate.

The LiOH software development team produced the LiOH cartridge production tracking software and created a variety of new reports using Agile Project Management techniques.

Using these techniques, a project that was originally estimated to take 18 months was finished in six months.

This effort helped maintain the LiOH Lab’s status as a facility that never once delivered a product that failed to meet specifications or put the safety of an astronaut at risk.
