By significantly reducing your number of parallel projects--focusing on fewer, and then trying to get them done--you might get better results. Why? Because multi-tasking is the enemy, and agile is a capacity equalization play.
An Agile BA goes far beyond simply eliciting requirements. They are constantly on the hunt for new and better ways of delivering business value. They apply systems thinking to the big picture, rather than trying to document aspects of a single approach. They are, in fact, drivers of innovation.
Sneak Peek into PMI® Global Congress 2015 –North America Organizational Agility Sessions Description:
An Inside Look at Global Congress 2015-North America Organizational Agility Sessions Join us for a panel discussion on Organizational Agility and get a glimpse into some of the key themes to be presented in this content area at PMI Global Congress 2015 – North America.
Through this webinar we'll take a deeper dive into the hard metrics (quantitative) that should be tracked at the Team, Program and Portfolio levels.
Everyone wants metrics, but which ones really matter? Which metrics can help you "actually" get better and give you visibility into the health of your teams?
Do you often find that when something fails in production, the response of a development team member is, “It works on my machine or at our end, you must be having the wrong version“? Vice Versa on the other side of the table – do you find that the operations team always feels that the developers are not sensitive to the operational requirements and constraints? If so, does that mean we are just developing software not a working system ? Are we just working in Silos ? DevOps aims at breaking the Silos and bringing in a culture of everyone “getting along”. Presenter Priya Patra disucsses how and why DevOps is the force behind the evolution where the development team and operations works together with business sponsors and quality assurance (QA) to deliver software that can be released to production at any point of time.

There are great opportunities for growth and deviation outside the standard agile models for stable teams who want to evolve further. This article tells the story of one team that did just that--and what other people can learn from it.
Information radiator is the generic term for any of a number of handwritten, drawn, printed or electronic displays that a team places in a highly visible location. It conveys the latest information at a glance. Learn how your team can foster collaboration through visible project management and implementing radiators.
Project delivery organizations need more than just a bimodal approach. While waterfall and agile are very different delivery approaches, if you put them on a spectrum with one at each end, you will find that many projects would ideally be situated somewhere along the spectrum between those two extremes. Instead, optimal delivery would be achieved with a tetramodal delivery approach.
Adopting and maintaining an appropriate project methodology is vital for organizational success. The purpose of this article is to explore and analyze project methodologies that find common application in effective project management.

Agile projects may look like untethered pinwheel rockets spinning away on unpredictable paths. How do we align them to IT strategies so they don’t adopt all kinds of crazy technologies the organization has to support or replace?
There’s a lot of talk about strategic or enterprise scale agile, but what do organizations have to do to prepare for such a change? The right approach will depend on the needs of the organization and its willingness to absorb change.
Development organizations are often attracted to agile development practices with the promise of increased test automation to help their teams deliver higher quality faster. It’s not just any tests though: We look to automate the kinds of tests that provide rapid feedback to tell us if we have built the product right. But which tests do we automate, and when?
Our webinar Scaling Agile Metrics and Measuring what Matters with Sally Elatta was a hit. Here she offers advice based on your questions that she was unable to address during the session.
