Project Design Master Class

Project Design Master Class will push you to new levels as project managers and architects. Attendees will learn IDesign's original battle proven techniques and methodologies and leave with the knowledge and skills required to excel at modern software project design. By providing real life, repeatable and workable solutions, Juval Löwy will teach you how to find the optimal solution for any project while eliminating gambling, death marches, wishful thinking, and expensive trial and error.

All of the above challenges stem from the system design. Addressing it properly is a hard core engineering task: designing the project itself. Overcoming it requires both the project manager and the architect to work closely together to determine the best overall plan.

This five day course incorporates hands–on labs to practice the techniques and cement the concepts learned. The class ends with a comprehensive case study, walking through its various permutations in determining the best plan that will keep the project on schedule at the best risk level and cost available. The case study not only demonstrates end–to–end flow of project design across iterations but also demonstrates the thought process and rationale behind the decisions. The class will demonstrate IDesign's own techniques and templates for closing the loop allowing you to constantly stay on schedule and budget.

What you will learn: 
• How to accurately calculate the planned duration and cost of projects 
• How to devise several good execution options 
• How to schedule resources to ensure the project is both sensible and feasible 
• The inner dependencies between services and activities 
• The critical path of integration, the staff distribution and the risks involved in all projects 
• How to track both progress and effort across developers and services and containing the impact of changes 
• How to adapt the design to respond to changing priorities, resources, deadlines, estimations and features

See Juval in action in a free 75 minute webcast titled Software Project Design. The webcast is available here.

This course is aimed at project managers, architects, development managers or even aspiring senior developers who want to grow their skill set. The class's specific objective is to train the project manager and the architect of the same solution to work together synergistically, so we would recommend that both attend the course together.

This course will grant you membership to IDesign’s prestigious alumni group. Participants will also receive the IDesign documents and diagram templates, tools, samples, and reference projects.

The IDesign serviceware downloads (a set of original techniques, tools, utilities and even breakthroughs developed by the IDesign architects) will also be provided. The utilities are largely productivity-enhancing tools, or they compensate for some oversight in the design of .NET or WCF.
