Project Management

The reality is that the project management
methodologies available to a project manager are
often decided on long before a project starts. In
many cases the decision is based on nothing more
than "this is what we've always done". At other
times, the decision is based on an enterprise-wide
initiative to adopt a particular process like the
Rational Unified Process. Regardless, it is important to know the various project management methodologies if for no other reason than to be aware of the where their strengths lie and where they fall short.

The list below describes project management and software development methodologies that I've used or have read about over the years. Some are fairly mature in that they've been around for quite some time. Others are relatively new and have been developed to recognize the challenges that are inherent with many modern software development initiatives.

My name is David Kent and I am a project manager with extensive experience (see my project manager resume) solving business problems through the use of effective design practices, on-time development cycles, and seamless deployment of custom-built web initiatives.
