I have been engaged in development since the 2000s. I participated in about fifty IT projects wearing many hats, from developer to project manager. We had to solve complex technical and managerial issues. From many years of experience, I drew the conclusion that development is the most interesting and fascinating process in the modern world that connects people, technology, creativity, and progress. Also that a project’s success (or failure) depends on the team of specialists.

“Manager crash test: What is the main mistake that a PM can make when taking on too much?".
To avoid a train wreck, it's not enough to know how to design a train. It is very useful to analyze the causes of past accidents, take them into account and try to avoid them in the future. In my own example, I will tell you about the crashes and near-crashes of several projects and what conclusions I drew from them.

“Fighting with chaos, or how to get a good product when dealing with the human factor”.
Does the client want to create a new great application but has no idea what the app will be about? b Has a group of stakeholders with completely different ideas replaced those with the project from the very beginning? Has the client hired their own designer? Is the CEO’s best friend constantly giving advice on how the application should look? Will the design studio be able to create a great product under such circumstances, or will the CEO’s best friend, that designer and the new stakeholders have to be terminated for the greater good?
15.00 – 15.40
“How did we end up in here?” How managers complicate projects
We will talk about how using rules without understanding them (i.e. where they came from) can complicate a project. Not every project looks hard in the beginning, but almost all of them look that way in the end. How so? We all know that the project’s environment is unpredictable, but it’s immature to blame everything on the fact that “the world is complicated”. What decisions were made by managers can turn a normal project into a hardcore one that includes overtime, running over budget, and stress and conflics inside the team? What immutable rules, which are applied without understanding them, can lead to such results? If you think you know exactly why one must not add developers to a late project, then come visit us, we have something to talk about.
16.00 – 16.40
“High season as an IT project ”
High season is a sore point in relations between IT and business. The season is like snow in St. Petersburg, it always comes unexpectedly. Companies can increase revenues by 3-5 times while maintaining the level of fixed costs. Often the results of high season determine the next year for the company and its position on the market. High season is a perfect time to test the strength of the IT platform. How can we fix the roof before it starts to rain while not spending too much on it? Can IT increase the positive effect of high season and not just sit it out in terror?
