Presentation Overview
Managing Knowledge Workers - Today's complex projects provide many challenges to the traditional plan-the-work, work-the-plan approaches to project management. Uncertainty, unproven technology, and compressed timelines characterize the Knowledge Worker projects that now dominate modern organizational work. This presentation examines a solution to these challenges that comes from an unlikely source - the software industry. It explains how agile methods use leadership techniques to form groups, steer teams, and solve complex problems that can stifle traditional project management approaches.
