Sample text

As the features and functions needed to deliver the requirements are developed, the requirements may well change, but few additions or deletions to the original requirements are expected. The WBS for the current version is created along with duration, cost, and resource requirements. This model closely resembles the productionprototype approach that has been quite popular for many years. Unlike with the traditional models, it should be obvious that the meaningful involvement of the client is critical to the success of agile models.

Profile of the Client Team Just as the chosen approach must align with the team, it must also align with the client. For example, clients of the take-charge type that are quite comfortable with the lead position might resist an approach where they have little or no say in what happens. If they are capable of taking charge, choose an approach where they can take charge (Scrum, for example). You will always be there as backup if they tend to stray outside of scope. Supporting Technology I’ve always remembered what a friend and colleague used to say: Don’t kill mosquitoes with a sledge hammer.

The development team will have a single individual in charge with decision-making authority. This person serves as co-manager of the project along with the client-team manager. The two co-managers share equally in the success or failure of the project, and they both must have decision-making authority with respect to this project. Your APF project would be seriously handicapped if the client comanager had to get approval from company management all through the project. This project-manager model is unique to APF and is a critical success factor for such projects.
