NISO Spring Project Management Training Series, Session Five, Planning & Budgeting, 6.11.20

There is no bottomless well of resources available. Every project, every product is created within the confines of a budget. This session addresses the critical question of how one builds a business case that draws support from those controlling available resources. If you’re working in the context of an agile process, how do you plan? How do you get the resources needed to succeed when you operate under cost constraints? Perhaps even more critical to know is what to do when a ‘pivot’ in development threatens to break the budget.
