Make everybody happy - managing client/developer relationships

by John Eckhardt | at Minnebar 17

Have you ever been on a project where it feels like nobody knows what to build? The client is expecting the impossible, the manager is stressed because they're over budget, and the developers have pressure to stay busy; and nothing productive gets done.

Let's talk about how to manage expectations between clients and developers so we can get on the same page and stay there. Starting with requirements gathering and moving through the software development lifecycle, we'll explore ways developers and clients know good progress is being made.

30 minute presentation, then you share your best practices.

John Eckhardt started programming before he could read. Ok, maybe he started at age 9, but that's still pretty early! His passion for programming, entrepreneurship and efficiency has led to the founding of Code Pros eight years ago to help people do more of what they love (because they're doing less administrative busywork). His current day to day is a mix of client relations and leading developers.

John's enjoying the intersection of technology, process, business and efficiency. And shredding organ solos on his keyboard.
