We start our project management journey as a search for tools to get organized and structured, to get things done, to organize and structure our work. It is a focus outward, looking for answers and solutions to questions and problems. At some point, we transition to a consuming of project management as defined and practiced. We learn structure and order, sequence and steps. There are boundaries, and within those boundaries there are espoused and recommended (dare we call them “best”?) practices. Eventually, we hit a point where we need to reconcile these perspectives. We recognize that the universal definition doesn’t suit all situations. We also come to appreciate the value of our own viewpoint and perspectives. We need to reconnect with where we started, and understand how all the pieces fit together for us.

Scaling Agile has been a hot topic in the last 3 to 5 years. Organizations that have successful software deliveries are trying to spread the success of the Scrum Team(s) beyond technology departments. On the other hand, laggards, teams and organizations that didn't embrace Agile when it became clear that it is the future, are cutting corners and launching mammoth programs to "do" Agile. Scrum, the core of the most recent "scaled" frameworks, was designed for teams of less than 10 people developing software products. Even at that size, it is "difficult to master", according to its authors. This webinar takes a look at Agile scaling from both perspectives: agile software development created for small homogenous teams AND agile manufacturing conceived in the last century for large companies as a replacement to Lean. The webinar is based on the author's 30+ years’ of experience as a practitioner. From manufacturing to software development and then to projects, this webinar is an analysis of the famous mindset change and the challenges and lessons learned while doing it and helping others to do it.

For some, Agile started in 2002 as a revolution against "waterfall" with both (Agile and "waterfall") wrongly considered Project Management methodologies. While the Manifesto for Agile Software Development (aka THE "Agile Manifesto") was an important step in agile adoption, the reality is that most concepts considered "Agile" were in use for decades. Incremental and iterative software development had more than 3 decades of documented use, and the dreaded "waterfall" was more Agile than many modern frameworks. This webinar is a retrospective of Agile and Lean practices that were rediscovered when teams wanted to scale Agile towards the Enterprise level with the aim of learning from mistakes already made by others.
