Event description

Digital Jersey and the BCS Jersey International Section have got together and invite you to an event, Waterfall vs. Agile Project Management: When should you choose Agile Project Management?’ with our guest speakers Karen Gray and Simon Brown.

Traditional waterfall projects are planned, managed and delivered in a predicative way, whereas using Agile project management follows a different approach. Successfully applying Agile requires a paradigm shift in how projects are managed, delivered and measured. Karens presentation will highlight the differences between the waterfall and agile project management approaches and suggest when each should be applied. She will also provide an overview of Agile project management, based on DSDM Atern.


Karen Gray is a trained Agile Project Manager (Practitioner), who has successfully delivered high quality project outcomes in the private and public sectors, both in Jersey and internationally. She is also Prince 2 certified. Karen has over 15 years experience in the IT industry, with a strong focus on Skills Development and Project delivery. She currently contracts to the States of Jersey, as the Online Services Programme Manager where an Agile approach is being implemented.

Simon Brown is an independent consultant based in Jersey, the founder of Coding the Architecture and either a software architect who codes or a software developer who understands architecture. Having successfully delivered a variety of projects on the .NET and Java platforms, Simon now uses his experience to train and coach teams in delivering better software.
