        Agile Project Management option: Commitment-Based Project Management (CBPM)



When:   Wed Jun 12, 2019 5:30pm-8:00pm
Where:  Sunnyvale Community Center Ballroom - 550 E. Remington Dr. Sunnyvale, CA 94085


Projects take too long. And if you are not doing software development, Agile methodologies may be hard to adapt. Or, you are doing software development and must use Waterfall. How can you be Agile?

CBPM is a methodology developed at Intel Corporation to manage their semiconductor projects. Since then, it has been applied in multiple domains, from Waterfall software development to construction, medical devices, defense projects, IT infrastructure, and many others. It is a domain-agnostic Agile process, which allows the project manager to be Agile in any effort.

In an Agile fashion, teams plan and monitor projects, ensuring that there are no surprises while being able to quickly adapt to changes. A very Agile approach.

This session will be an abbreviated version of the day-long workshop on June 15 that covers the material. As such, it will cover only the highlights of the approach.



  • Basic understanding of the concepts behind the CBPM approach including:
  • Map days
  • Monitoring and tracking
  • Knowledge of where to get more information
