Joint Application Design Workshop

As a PEC, Inc. employee, I was asked to design, develop, and deliver a JAD workshop for the Administrative Office of the US Courts' Project Management Education Series. The JAD (Joint Application Development ) techniques was developed by IBM in the late 1970’s. Since then, it has been considered to be one of the “best practices” for:

  • Defining and planning a project
  • Identifying requirements
  • Getting buy-in on design
  • Planning the implementation process
  • Resolving issues in a timely manner

A goal of the workshop was to convey that the JAD technique is a management process. It isn’t a stand alone event someone says needs to happen. It is a technique used to make things happen. The workshop covered:

  • Basics:
    • What – What is the JAD technique?
    • Why – Why use it?
    • Who – Who should participate?
  • Application:
    • When – When should JAD be used?
    • How – How is a JAD session conducted?
    • Summary – How does it all come together?
