Is Agile Really Going Mainstream?

by Andy Jordan

Agile has been “going mainstream” for more than a decade, but supporting evidence was more in the eye of the beholder. Maybe now it’s really happening. A new State of Agile report found growing adoption rates outside of software development and documented success in areas such as visibility and alignment.

Sell Problems, Then Solutions

by Rich Mironov

Managing conflict is a critical competency for every leader and employee. Unfortunately, many people choose simply to ignore conflict and hope it goes away by itself, thinking that it’s not my call to resolve it. However, conflict is an essential part of growth, especially when there is a need to be innovative and creative, when deadlines are tight, and when the directions are unclear.

Project HEADWAY: Can Waterfall And Agile Co-Exist?

The domains of waterfall and agile often appear as two solitudes, not overlapping at all. More often they appear to be warring camps, decrying the other and advocating for their preferred way of working. This gets reinforced by the adherents of one practice or the other (often most influenced by which perspective they learned first). One is considered good, the other bad, and there is very little middle space to explore common ground, let along find a potential way of working together. And yet, work together they can. Both strategies have a place, both have a role, and both deliver value. They key is in understanding what each provides, how they are similar and in what important ways they are different, and how commonalities can be found. If you’re stuck in the middle—or you are wondering what all the fuss is about—you won’t want to miss this webinar.

As powerful as humility is, a common misconception is that it's a sign of weakness. Some think that people who are humble behave as if they are inferior to others. As a result, humility is not regarded as a critical skill. But the fact is that there is an incredible amount of courage and strength involved in the practice of humility especially for those in leadership. As a leader in the project management space, it is critical for you to understand that humility is the foundation of great leaders, and the basis for world-class customer service. This webinar will highlight how humility can take your career to heights you may not have imagined.

Knowing this assists with quick problem identification and action, which will properly utilize our time and efforts. Likewise, we will review which prevention methods work best for each problem category, and our unique situation. We will understand how to solve problems while maintaining relationships, instead of compromising relationships to solve problems.

As the number of projects in organizations skyrocket, understanding project fundamentals and fostering project management skills have become essential. Leaders have too many projects with too little visibility into them, and they lack the project oversight and delivery competencies to untangle them. In a recent survey with Harvard Business Review, we wanted to look at the current challenges faced by senior leaders when dealing with projects and project management, as well as their expectations for the future. The results, combined with other case studies, will help us better understand how organizations are using projects now, where they are finding success with projects, and where they are struggling. The session will help project managers translate their hands-on know-how up to the leader’s-eye view.

Cross-disciplinary projects are particularly challenging in that they require everyone to align and support each other to be successful. When you inhabit different worlds, adopt different perspectives and use very different terminology (although occasionally using theoretically-familiar words). If you currently manage cross-disciplinary projects and teams, or you fear that you will in the future, this is a webinar that you won’t want to miss.
