ROME Cheap Jaylon Smith Jersey , March 20 (Xinhua) -- Italian Minister of Infrastructure Maurizio Lupi said he would resign from his post after multiple allegations of corruption and kickbacks connected to large-scale public works projects, in what is being cast as the first major scandal of the 13-month-old government of Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

Lupi's decision came after Italian police arrested four people and announced dozens more were under investigation of illegally manipulating public contracts worth more than 25 billion euros (26.9 billion U.S. dollars) for projects ranging from high-speed railway lines to the soon-to-launch Milan Expo 2015.

Lupi was not among those put under investigation, but his close ties to those named in the massive probe made it more difficult for him to do his job.

To further complicate Lupi's situation, police revealed that one of the four men arrested, a developer named Stefano Perotti, gave the minister's son, Luca, an architect, a Rolex watch valued at 10,000 euros in connection with one of the engineering contracts in question.

Lupi denied any wrongdoing, and he said his decision to step down was for the good of the government.

"I never obtained any favors or received anything inappropriate while serving in this job," Lupi said, adding that his exit would "help strengthen the government."

Leading up to the latest developments, Renzi warned Lupi that he could not continue under the current circumstances. After the resignation was announced, the Prime Minister called it a "wise decision."

Analysts said the developments, which broke late Thursday, had the potential to hurt Renzi's image.

"Italians won't be surprised to find allegations of corruption connected to a political figure, especially after the years of corruption and corruption charges with (former Prime Minister Silvio) Berlusconi," Gian Franco Gallo, a political affairs analyst with ABS Securities, told Xinhua. "But Renzi set himself up as the anti-Berlusconi. If he starts getting touched by scandal as well, that would change."

Maria Rossi, co-director of the polling firm Opinioni, agreed, up to a point. Rossi said if the Lupi situation remained an isolated case, the impacts would be minimal.

"This is a single incident and Lupi hasn't even been directly implicated, at least so far," Rossi said in an interview. "It is clear Lupi's resignation was managed correctly, and Renzi's track record when it comes to scandals has been good. I think if we don't have another unwelcome surprise in another month or two, he'll be fine."

One unwelcome aspect of the situation, according to Gallo, is that Renzi must now find a replacement for Lupi and get the candidate approved by parliament. Nobody expects problems, but it does siphon away some political capital Renzi would rather use moving his reform agenda forward.

"This is just another unexpected distraction," Gallo said, adding "the impacts add up."

In the world of project management and software development, a lot of new terms and methodologies can sprout up at any given moment. This can be quite overwhelming for anyone, and most especially for any newbie. With all these new-fangled processes and concepts swirling around, how would you know which ones will serve you and your company best?
Fortunately, some methods have already turned out to be far more effective than others. One of these methods is called scrum development. If there’s any methodology that you’ll need to be familiar with anytime soon, then this one should be it. This type of development has really given the world of project management a field day.

Let’s start with the actual term. Where did the word ‘scrum,’ come from, anyway? If you’re a sports fan, you would know that a scrum is the method in which a rugby team restarts the game right after a rule has been accidentally broken. When you learn more about this methodology, you would realize that this is exactly what scrum development entails: being flexible enough to restart a process over and over until one gets the desired result.

This methodology addresses the fact that software development is a highly malleable and unpredictable process, and therefore cannot be constrained by a strict, linear way of doing things. Instead of following the usual Analysis-Design-Implementation-Testing process, people who practice scrum don’t follow a particular sequence. Work can begin at any given stage of the process, and can move from one stage to the next with utmost flexibility.

It’s really quite revolutionary when you think about it. For the longest time, project management has always been a step-by-step, beginning-middle-end kind of process. With scrum development, such notions are thrown out the window. There’s no more excuse for slacking off because your phase of the process is set towards the end. There is no more ‘end.’ Your phase can be accomplished first since all the necessary tools and components are already present.

What’s also great about this methodology is that there is no one person lording over everyone else. It is quite an equal-opportunity kind of process in that everyone ideally works in teams of six to seven members, but with each member still working independently. In that sense, it is also still like a rugby team. In scrum development, every single person has a task, and it is up to him and only him to achieve this task. Responsibility, then, is more clearly delineated, and it is easier to get to the root of any problem.

In the end, scrum has really liberated the project management process, turning it from some stiff set of rules to a more organic, free-flowing, and altogether productive way of doing things. Hopefully, scrum will be applied to more and more situations apart from software development.
