What’s Up With Standards? – What They’re For, and Your Opportunity To Participate In Developing Them
In this webinar you will learn the purpose and use of standards, and how they form the basis of the profession and practice of project, program, and portfolio management. Standards are used to codify professional knowledge, to normalize practices in the field, and to provide practitioners with a toolbox of processes and approaches that can be applied to the project. Standards are developed by credible, recognized bodies, in particular by ISO and by PMI. This presentation will discuss the process by which standards are developed in an open, consensus-based manner, and you will learn how you can get involved in the development of standards at PMI and at the national and international level.

Agile is a continuous improvement process in itself, but at the enterprise level, most of the Agile frameworks can’t be used for process improvement because the business area has very limited room for agility due to strong governance requirements or because of the culture and strong resistance to change. Process Improvement is a very well defined discipline that has tools and metrics that can easily be used to measure the benefits delivered by transition to Agile. This webinar presents some options for improving processes that have an Agile component but are not entirely Agile.

Virtually everyone agrees that projects benefit significantly when team members and key stakeholders speak up to ask questions, voice concerns (early!), and provide honest feedback. It’s that candid feedback that helps teams arrive at better decisions and sometimes avoid all-out calamity, but the truth is that oftentimes team members (even PMs) don’t feel free to speak up.
