Critical Success Factors for Projects Using Scrum


Speaker: Lorena Stanberry

Topic Description:  This study expands upon research previously conducted on critical success factors for the implementation of agile software development methodologies.  The purpose was to examine the relationships between 12 independent variables, representing possible critical success factors for agile software development projects (Management Commitment, Organization Environment, Team Environment, Team Capability, Customer Involvement, Project Management Process, Project Definition Process, Agile Software Engineering Techniques, Delivery Strategy, Project Nature, Project Type, and Project Schedule); and the dependent variable of project success, consisting of four dimensions (Quality, Scope, Time, and Cost).  Participants in the study included 132 practitioners in U.S.-based global companies that have served as a product owner, Scrum master, software developer, business analyst, and/or tester, for a completed large and distributed agile software development project using Scrum methodology.  Graphical and quantitative data analysis techniques served to examine the study research model and test the hypotheses.  Findings from data analysis support that all 12 critical success factors have an impact on the successful resolution of agile software development projects using Scrum methodology in U.S.-based global companies; however, with differing levels of significance.  The results reflect all 12 factors are not significant for one or more of four dimensions of project success.  Also, results support that five of the 12 critical success factors are significant; however, of these, three ranked higher than the others and showed a significant effect on more than one of the dimensions of project success.  These three factors are Delivery Strategy, Team Capability, and Project Definition Process. 

Speaker Bio: Lorena Stanberry has been working in the financial industry for 30+ years, with 20 of those in project management.  She currently holds a Doctorate in Project Management, a Master’s in Business Administration, and a Master’s in Accounting.  Lorena’s certifications consist of PMP in 2011, Scrum Master and SAFe Agilist along with my Six Sigma DFSS and Greenbelt.  Lorena is passionate about educating on project management to empower others to achieve their goals.  She believes that change is a constant and we can determine how to embrace it.

Community Chapter Meeting 

As a means of helping chapter and local community members who are certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP®) satisfy the continuing education requirements for re-certification, PMI Metrolina Chapter arranges its monthly meeting schedule to allow a 1 hour PDU training session to be incorporated into its normal meeting.

Topics presented during these sessions are designed to not only satisfy the PDU requirement for re-certifying as a PMP, but to also provide wide appeal to people involved in project management regardless of whether or not they are certified PMPs. The 1-hour sessions meet the educational requirements to qualify for 1 PDU credits for maintaining PMP® certification or to meet the requirement for attending 35 hours of formal project management education prior to applying to sit for the PMP® exam.

The sessions are open to all.
