SYNOPSIS

Most project managers are familiar with the life cycle and delivery approach in particular the difference between a predictive project management and an agile project management approach. If you work on construction-type projects then a traditional project management approach is the best to adopt. Similarly, if you work on software development or IT projects then an agile project management approach is the best choice. As a researcher at the university working on product development projects, the choice between these two is a grey area: a situation that is not clear or where the rules are not known. The goals and solutions of many complex product development projects are not clear. Scopes or specifications are not written in stones or should be completely followed. Working on complex product development project such as developing a 3D printing system for medical application from scratch is challenging with tons of uncertainties and unknowns. The borderline between agile and predictive is a challenge. Failures are common but project managers must be able to adapt and solve issues one at a time until the project is completed. In this talk, topics on complex projects, product development and lessons learned gained through the years of developing this product will be briefly discussed.
