This article takes a look at the sustainable pace concept from agile approaches. Given the time-to-market emphasis and use of terms like “sprints,” the idea of a sustainable pace seems odd to some people. However, it's really about taking a smart, long-term view to optimize overall value delivered.
We often think of sustainably externally - on what we need to do to save the planet from the increasing impacts of climate change. There is also the question of our own personal sustainability. How do we sustain ourselves? How do we manage in the face of increased pressure, growing demands and shrinking capacity to respond? This webinar explores how to manage and sustain our own capacity and ability to thrive.

Scaling Agile practices beyond software development teams and IT departments is a growing trend, and the Agile Enterprise is a reality rather than a goal. However, the transition from planned approach to Agile is a painful change, and PMO can provide support for Agile rather than be perceived as an archaic team supporting “waterfall”.

This webinar is a summary of the presenter’s experience in organisations transitioning to Agile.
The importance of governance in Portfolios, Programs, and Projects (3P) is reflected in part by the development of standards for governance (PMI, 2016) as well as by the increasing attention being paid to governance in management/academic literature, and in practice. At the same time, organizations increasingly aim to improve their innovation capabilities, enabling them to survive in today’s dynamic, competitive environment. However, there is little guidance in research literature on whether and how 3P governance can be designed to support and promote innovation. The escalating importance of project delivery in organizations, especially for innovation, further highlights the need for better understanding of the relationship between governance, innovation, and success in 3P.
