One of the misconceptions a lot of new project managers have is the idea that teamwork is something that is only required some of the time. That’s not real teamwork. We must learn to create the environment and let the work happen.

A project leader of a functional team, in late 2020, may encounter external stakeholders that may negatively affect aspirational guidelines that all PMs must strive to achieve. By nature of this type of organization, a PM has little or no formal power. How does a PM maintain the position of being fair, being factual with stakeholder raising conflict, defending himself/herself in a responsible manner, and respecting those stakeholders bringing negative (perceived or real) risks? In the process groups of initiation and executing, I plan to share also two to three examples from projects in the ASIC supply chain business experienced in the past (good, bad, ugly) in the in the initiation and execution areas.

Most Agile frameworks, like Scrum, Crystal and XP, were conceived by developers for a small team of developers. With the inherent maturity of the agile concept, 'old' practices, such as Lean, were employed to scale Agile beyond a team of 5-9 software developers. SAFe and Disciplined Agile are good examples of augmenting Agile with Lean, at the cost of restricting agility to ensure scalability and financial viability. Some Lean practices, like Kanban, were re-discovered and are considered by some practitioners as the next agile step. Agile beyond software development is not necessarily as easy as you hear in conferences. In the trenches the famous 'mindset change' is both ways: Agile must also learn to accept other ways of doing things and adapt to the needs of non-technical teams.
