Video Highlights: Risk Modulated Project Management Project Management / Product Development framework creator Jeffrey Anthony presents a brief executive overview of RMPM's philosophy and use.

He concisely explores:
  • When Agile-like techniques are right for a project -- and when they're not
  • When Plan-Driven techniques are right for a project -- and when they're not
  • Why almost every project needs Agile for some of its parts (sub projects) and Plan-Driven techniques for other
  • How RMPM
    • Uses risk assessment to "modulate" the degree of flexibility (Agile-like) and Rigor (Plan-Driven) by each of a Project's sub projects
    • Seamlessly coordinates all sub projects
    • Builds-in Quality at every step -- not just through periodic and end-of-project testing
  • Risk Modulated Project Management client successes that
    • Build a culture of delivery across the enterprise
    • Break down “silos” to put all players from all business functions truly “on the same team”
    • Bring client business in closer collaboration with customers than ever before
