Process on my mind as of late including the structure and methodology of successful endevors. So many companies have so many names for roles that serve as the basics to rolling out web development projects. The challenge of driving the business analysis, functional requirements, design prototypes, use cases, testing, rollout, and metrics for web projects is challenging. But what about the project manager role? This role takes time and effort as well. Managment of big groups takes real effort dedicated to planning, regular daily touchbase, meeting organization, documenation, status reports, timeline progress, communications, issues lists, process and connections.
So the question is, Can there be a role that effectively play the full role of business analyst and project manager role for projects? Maybe not effectively… but adoption of Agile techniques might help. I was searching for some Agile Project Manager role info and ran across this collection of papers at Dr. Dobbs with some good things to think about. “8 must read papers for Project Managers”
