Project Management for Software Development Projects

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Sadhana Deshpande is an experienced Project Manager and Researcher in Software Engineering. Her current research focus is on Global Software Development, Outsourcing and Offshoring of software projects, Management of Offshore-Outsource software projects, Software Quality and Business Process Modeling. She is Co-founder of Vision Computer Consultants, a software company based in India specializing in project management, software development, training and consulting. She is associated with Indian software industry over last 20 years. Dr. Deshpande has developed an expert validated process model ‘GSD-COORD’ for management of software projects. This model has extended the PMBOK® Guide framework to propose a better management of global software development projects. She was awarded PhD by University of Limerick, Ireland in January 2013. She holds Master of Business administration (MBA) and Master in Computer Management (MCM) degrees from University of Pune, India along with Bachelor of Science (BSc) from Marathwada University, India. Prior to moving to Sweden Dr. Deshpande was associated with Lero-Irish Software Engineering Research Centre, University of Limerick, Ireland where she was working on European Union (EU) and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) funded software engineering research projects.

Summary

Today, outsourcing and offshoring of software development projects and functioning with globally distributed teams has become increasingly common in software industry. However, the major issue that subsists is the management of Global Software Development (GSD) projects because the software development teams need to align and coordinate over temporal differences to work competently with each other. A practical approach that needs to be followed is to incorporate appropriate techniques and strategies to overcome various issues that impede management of software projects. In this talk, Dr. Deshpande will discuss how PMBOK® Guide supports management of global software development projects besides collocated projects. Also, how various tools and techniques from the PMBOK® Guide in particular are best suitable for global software development environment. Dr. Deshpande will further discuss how in comparison to other standards such as ISO and CMMI the tools and techniques from PMBOK® Guide have helped to develop an expert validated process model ‘GSD-COORD’ for global software project management. This model has extended the PMBOK® Guide framework to propose a better approach for management of software projects. She will present few processes from the GSD-COORD model that are derived from PMBOK® Guide to demonstrate how the model can be tailored to suit global and collocated organizational settings. She will also demonstrate how project managers can take a holistic approach to implement different strategies and best practices from these processes to contemplate both the client and vendor perspective for software project management.
