IEEE Computer Society Denver Chapter Will Host Distinguished Visitor in September

POSTED BY on 09.04.2018

On 15 September 2018, Distinguished Visitor Dr. Mark Paulk will present “Software Project Management” at the University of Denver, Ritchie School of Engineering (RM 410).

Dr. Paulk, professor of software engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas, consultant and author, will lead a seminar structured around project management, customer relations management, decision-making, earned value, critical path, critical chain and agile methodologies. The presentation will examine the ways that, although effective project management is a prerequisite for meeting commitments, many software projects fail to meet customer expectations for budget, schedule, functionality, and quality.

Dr. Paulk will also touch upon project management as a fundamental requirement to achieve Level 2 against the Capability Maturity Integration (CMMI) for development or to be certified against ISO 9001.
