*This webinar is presented in Romanian* Trăim într-o lume interconectată, unde echipele dispersate geografic sunt mai degrabă o normă decât o excepție, cum era acum 30 de ani. Internetul este un mediu de colaborare fantastic, dar una din lecțiile învățate din boomul outsourcingului și una dintre recomandările Agile este pozitionarea echipelor într-o singură locație. Rolul liderului în Agile, indiferent dacă se numește Scrum Master sau Manager de Proiect, este esențial, iar din motive practice este mai ușor să aducem liderul la echipă decât să aducem întreaga echipă unde este liderul. Managerii de proiect angajați pe durată determinata aduc experiență și cunoștințe care protejează interesul clientului, totodată având beneficii financiare și profesionale atât pentru individ, cât și pentru organizatie. In viata este bine ca "la pomul lăudat să nu te duci cu sacul", beneficiile vin întodeauna cu provocări și lucrul în medii culturale diverse este una dintre ele.

Digital transformation is a phenomenon occurring across sectors and nations, affecting not only technical processes, but also organizational forms and managerial practices. Among them are: (1) project-based organizations (PBOs), common in traditional sectors like the construction industry, and (2) project networks (PNWs), the most favorable form of project organizing in modern service and creative industries. Project management, which is often used as an agent for change, plays a significant role in initiating and implementing digital transformation. To analyze the digital transformation of traditional PBOs and modern PNWs, comparative case studies in the context of commercial construction have been conducted in Sweden and in Germany.


The Agile Enterprise: Using Risk Management Standards - A Look at the Role of PMI and ISO Standards in Agile

by Stelian Roman
September 20, 2019 | 56:15 | Views: 1,921 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.37 / 5

Most Agile frameworks developed for small software teams (relative to the size of an organisation) believe that adopting Agile is a Risk Mitigation approach and/or that in Agile risk is reduced compared with the traditional planned approach, wrongly limited to "waterfall" software development. Apart from the fact that there is no empirical or scientific evidence of that, most Agile practitioners can't or won't look at the dual aspect of risk (positive and negative), missing one of the significant benefits of Agile – opportunities management, or in other words, positive risks. Considering Risk Management from the Agile perspective, this webinar is a review of how Risk Management practices and standards can be scaled down and adopted by Agile Teams.
