session is called "It's All About Style", a review of Cascading

session will be on "Using modules in RPG ILE". Many RPG
developers are still not using RPG ILE. Is it because they are
afraid of using sub-procedures? Learn to think in modules so
you can take full advantage of RPG ILE.
Ken's session is "Macro Baselines". Baselining a
project is easy. Rebaselining a project can be a challenge. The biggest
issue surrounding rebaselining involves how to handle schedule slips. The
conventional way to rebaseline typically results in a win-lose scenario.
Usually the vendor wins and the customer loses, but it is just as easy to
address rebaselining in such a way that the vendor loses and the customer
wins. In this mini-presentation you’ll learn why this is so, and how to
create a rebaselining policy that results in a consistent win-win outcome.
