RE: [scrumdevelopment] Re: FW: [object-technology] [Jeff Sutherland's Object Technology Web Site] Agile Development: Reforming Project Management
- Agreed--I don't come anywhere close to using a Gantt chart to drive
daily activities. I do use it to try to find the critical chain in a
project and then I use that as part of the macro-planning process. Even
on agile projects there can be dependencies between tasks that can delay
a project. These types of things are not hard to find with just the
tiniest bit of upfront consideration.
I also checked. My most recent Gantt chart was January 25 and outlined 6
sprints for a project predicted to end on 7/19 (which actually shipped
to its beta sites on 7/17). So--I hope no one thinks I'm Gantt-happy; I
just don't write them off entirely.

I read Hal's Blog on Reforming Project Management, and I also find
it excellent, as Jeff says. I think in the construction industry,
where Hal comes from, the real problem is that too many people try
to drive daily work from a Gantt Chart. We don't drive daily word
from such a chart with Scrum either.
