Topic Teasers Vol. 132: Will I Always Work From Home?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: To hear the news, I’m concerned about my job. Will most of us be working from home in the future? While it has its perks, I’m not sure it is the optimum work environment for the types of projects I do. Many of my friends love it. I’m just confused about what I should do to prepare myself to do my best right now—and at the same time get ready for a potential repositioning of what a normal workday will look like.

COVID-19 has disrupted business continuity and project priorities with long-term impacts on our ways of working. Many organizations have quickly assembled a current state of operations that is ad-hoc and temporary. And yet we’re only halfway through our change journey with a return to a “new normal” at some point. How can we proactively prepare our teams to transition to a future state when there are so many unknowns?

During the execution of large-scale construction projects, the occurrence of conflicts is probable due to variations to the project.

The Need for a (Project) History Lesson

by Andy Jordan

We all need to learn from the past, but what do you do if you weren’t part of that history? Virtually no project exists in isolation. It is always building on something that was done before, preparing for something to be done in the future, or both. New and younger project managers may not know that context.

The Agile Enterprise: SAFe and the PMBOK® Guide - Using Scaled Agile in Non Software Projects

by Stelian Roman
May 22, 2020 | 56:24 | Views: 67 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.60 / 5

Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is considered by some as the most suitable option to scale Agile from a software development team to a large program of work. Although presented as an Agile framework, SAFe includes many practices from Lean and ITIL, and it is considered by some agilists as too formal to be Agile: a re-branded 'waterfall'. This webinar is an analysis of SAFe from a project, program, and portfolio delivery point of view. The webinar looks at the SAFe practices used before the publication of the Manifesto for Agile software development (Agile Manifesto), especially the Lean ones. The presenter will provide recommendations on how SAFe can be used in projects that are not software development related, in combination with the PMBOK® Guide, to provide Agility for 'near perfect' product development processes.

The PMBOK® Guide lays out the importance of communication as a vital part of the project management process. The common adage that project management is 90% communication is well known and accepted. So, how can we help project professionals to practice it? After all, since it is a soft skill, one can develop competency in this area not by reading, acquiring knowledge, or talking about it but by practicing it in the real world.

Disciplined Agile Delivery is the 'new' Agile framework adopted by PMI. Although currently not as popular as Scaled Scrum, Disciplined Agile can be seen a competitor to Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), another framework presenting itself as an evolution of Agile/Scrum to the Enterprise Level. This webinar is an analysis of Disciplined Agile from a Project Manager's point of view - how Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) can be used to deliver projects, not necessarily software development projects. The framework is analyzed from the Agile Enterprise perspective looking at how DAD combines 'old' practices, like Lean, with Agile Manifesto values and principles. The webinar also explores how the PMBOK® Guide can augment DAD to become an Enterprise level, industry agnostic Agile delivery option.
