What is the Kanban Method?

Do you know what the kanban method is? I think everyone has seen some form of kanban (even the assembly line in fast food chains), but didn’t know there was an actual name for it or that the tech industry uses it too!

If you’re interested in tech, you must know what it is and how it is applied. Sometimes this can be used as a project management tool in consulting, features to develop in software engineering teams, and user stories on product teams. This honestly can be applied to many other aspects of life as well like pipelines!

What is a RAID log?

This is a project management tool a lot of my projects used and this was actually something I have never used prior to coming to Accenture. A lot of consulting projects (but not all) use RAID logs to keep all of the outstanding items left to do and mitigate. They actually come into play in a lot of steering committees as well when making decisions on what to do and how!

Have you used a RAID log before? How do you think this would help your future projects?

WHAT makes up a TECHNOLOGY CONSULTING Project Team

Did you know you can wear many hats as a technology consultant? What roles would you be doing on a project and what kind of responsibilities can you expect for each role?

In this video, I go over WHO and WHAT makes up your team (HINT: may not even be from your firm!), the hierarchy and roles of the project team, and the various project team structures across the industry!

My channel focuses on professional development but I also highlight my experience, lifestyle, and insights into a career in technology consulting in hopes to encourage more women to consider this amazing career – especially in STEM!

Any questions at all about the information I provided or about Accenture or technology consulting, please let me know!
