Hey Paris, did we work together at S&W in the shielding group, or do I have the wrong Paris?
I did work for S&W (SWEC) for a few years right out of college, so most probably you have the right Paris :-) The group was called Radiation Protection.

I also had a chance to both study with and later work with George for a while. Not only a great scientist, but a also a good person. I saw that he was honored by HPS. It could not have happened to a better person!

Re: Which PM Certification?

I think it's like getting a college degree. Getting a degree from *any* college is considered better than having no degree at all. However, getting a degree form a reputable, well known accredited college is usually considered better.

Re: Typical Scrum Sprint Length?

I believe that 4 week sprints is what scrum (Ken Schwaber) prescribes as a good sprint. However, we have used 1,2,3 and 4 week sprints and our experience has been a that: 1 week sprint is sometimes too short to complete the team commitments, 2 weeks appears to be the sweet spot for most projects.

All requirements have to be accounted for in the requirement phase and then the project is planned around the expected features to be delivered when the pr...
