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

by Stelian Roman
May 22, 2020 | 56:24 | Views: 2,810 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.37 / 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 Agile Enterprise: Combining Disciplined Agile Delivery with the PMBOK® Guide

by Stelian Roman

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.
