Building results-oriented web projects: The method that ends the madness

Drupal gives you a huge tool box to deliver features. As Drupal accelerates the development cycle, the question changes from “How do we build sites?” to “What should we build?” This session presents the strategies and methodologies LevelTen has learned and used over the last 12 years to build results driven websites.

For decades the gold standard for measuring project success has been the project management iron triangle: on time, on budget, on scope. Despite increasingly more rigorous planning strategies, the average project is still 45% over budget, delayed by 63% and missing 1/3 of the promised functionality.

Worse yet, this obsession with certainty is reducing quality, innovation and value while burning out web development teams - and things are only getting more difficult.

A new way of thinking is needed to build truly successful projects. This session presents modern strategies and methodologies that have continually proven to beat the averages. We will review the latest research and advice from the world’s foremost software engineers. The session will conclude with a breakdown of the innovative methodologies that drive the majority of the world’s leading websites.

This session is for anyone looking to build more successful projects. Project owners will learn how to drive innovation, faster and with less cost. Your development team will learn how to continually deliver better work with less stress and long weekends.

What you will learn:

  • How to embrace uncertainty to do things faster and better
  • Why humans suck at estimating (and what to do about it)
  • Why site owners suck at requirements (and what to do about it)
  • Why projects fail (and what to do about it)
