the Steering Committee 1 will take place in the next week. As all of you may already have noticed in our calendar the details of this event are:
Time: 9:50h AM
The attendance is mandatory for all SEP participants. If you cannot attend you need to announce this before and state the cause.
General Information about Steering Committees
One(!) representative of every team presents the current state of the project. The goal is that all attendees of the SC know your current progress and get to know your approaches. It is very important for us that you use this meeting to get in contact with other teams. Please address your current issues in your presentation or show creative solutions that might be helpful for others. Please note that SCs are not relevant for grading, they should help you and give you helpful suggestions and feedback.
The presentations should not last longer than 15 minutes (+ discussion afterwards). This is necessary, because we have a lot of teams this year and every team should get the chance to get feedback.
Every SC has two mandatory topics:
- A short(!) introduction of your team and your project at the beginning of your presentation. This helps the others to remember your project.
- Present a diagram that shows your current overall progress (i.e., Project Burndown Chart), as well as an overview of the (estimated) remaining work in your project. In later presentations you are supposed to show the changes to the last estimation. Please add the remaining (time) budget to this slide. These slides are typically shown at the end of the presentation.
Important: The language for all SCs is english!
Focus of Steering Committee 1
The goal of the first SC is to present a first sketch of your project and of your approaches. Therefore, you should cover the following areas:
- Give a deeper insight to your project proposal (the customers vision of the result)
- Special requirements of your customer
- Introduce your approach for the analysis phase and your requirements management, esp.:
- How do you identify tasks?
- How do you manage them?
- How do you estimate them?
- How do you keep the estimations up to date?
- Roles in your team
- Introduce the greatest risk of your project and your counter measures
- What tools are you using for project management (e.g., time tracking, requirements management, issue tracking, etc.)
- What is(are) your biggest issue(s) at the moment? (this is the end of the presentation and should be discussed with all groups)
