RP#1 Guide to the application of Agile best practices in Engineering projects

Participate in our research projects. See the list of currently active research projects. Based on your professional experience and interest volunteer to work in those projects where you can contribute maximum. Research projects are done as self organizing teams where the team members can decide how best they can work together. The expected outcomes of research projects are;

  • Collaboorative research experience
  • Contributing to the overall benefit of the project management community
  • Recognition for the contributions
  • Opportunities to gain professional development credits which can be used for maintaining credentials like PMP, PRINCE2, CSM etc.

RP#1 Guide to Application of Agile best practices in Engineering Projects

Engineering projects are challeged by the sheer volume and complexity of engineering work packages, which demands good degree of inter-diciplinary collaboration to get things done on time. Early trials of agile in engineering projects have reported very positive results.

We are seeking volunteers from engineering projects to work along with our agile experts for further piloting of agile best practices before documenting and publishing the lessons learned.

Ideal volunteer profile

  • Graduate engineer with minimum 4 years experience in engineering projects (preferable)
  • Knowledge of agile project management is not mandatory. Our agile experts will provide you with the required agile orientation
  • Must be willing to spend atleast 1 hour per week in research related discussions
  • Must have a flair to learn and experiment emerging concepts and techniques

Key Benefits

Benefits to Volunteers
  • Will gain hands on exposure to the application of agile in real life projects
  • Will receive free training / guidance on improving agility
  • PDUs (Credit) for the hours spent in the project
  • Your name in the contributers list
Benefits to PMRI & Project Management Community
  • Documented research outcomes
  • Recommended best practice document
