    Agile ERP?  You've got to be kidding!

    The University of Arizona recently completed its 5-year effort to replace all of its key administrative systems, in a set of integrated projects collectively known as the Mosaic Project.  In two of the projects, a conscious attempt was made to bring certain aspects of the "agile" methodology to bear in order to achieve a better outcome.  It didn't turn the effort fully into an agile project, but it also didn't proceed as the standard Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) effort either.  This presentation will discuss what we did and why, and how it turned out.


    Speaker

    Hank Childers was the Project Director for the University of Arizona’s Mosaic project, a 5-year $80 million project to replace all of the university’s key administrative systems.  That project was successfully completed and officially closed in July 2013.  Currently he is the Executive Director for a newly created unit called University Analytics & Institutional Research.  He also teaches Business Intelligence in the Graduate MIS program at the Eller College of Management.  He has been with the UA for 12 years.

    Prior to that, he was a Director with PriceWaterhouseCoopers, working in the Financial Services industry, primarily in a project management role.  He has a BA in Philosophy from Purdue University, and is active as a songwriter and performing musician.
