When Agile was almost exclusively used as a software development delivery approach, there was heated debate about what was and wasn’t “pure” Agile. The conversation continues now, but why? Today Agile approaches serve many needs and stakeholder groups; agile purists need to recognize this reality.

Through real-world case studies and hands-on demonstrations, we'll examine how generative AI can complement and actively steer Agile practices to new heights. The lessons to be gleaned from this session are multifaceted. Attendees will learn how generative AI can be a pivotal tool in elevating the Agile process from being reactive to becoming predictive. By unearthing the untapped potential of generative AI, we'll uncover a pathway beyond mere creation to intelligent guidance, quality assessment, and strategic decision-making, all contributing to a more streamlined, efficient, and effective Agile process. Join us as we journey beyond the superficial understanding of generative AI and discover its robust capabilities that extend far beyond parlor tricks into the real world of Agile mastery.
As many organizations now incorporate Agile ways of working to manage projects, there are new roles to be filled. In Scrum, one of those roles is the Product Owner. Does your organization have an unclear role and responsibilities for your Product Owners? Are you a Product Owner who is looking for ways to be more effective and successful in your role? If so, this webinar is for you.
Acceptance Testing is a process by which requirements are collaboratively turned into actionable and testable scenarios, enabling development. Various skills are required to make it an effective proess, one of which is the identification and definition of Domain-Specific Language elements, or DSLs. This webinar will examine the importance of this process and will show examples of creating such definitions. The material presented requires no technical expertise.
Podcasts and blog posts to help you manage the challenge of transitioning from traditional project management to Agile. Dave Prior celebrates success, embraces the learning that comes from failure, and digs deep on topics you need to be up to speed on.
This blog explores pragmatic agile and lean strategies for enterprise-class contexts.
This blog concerns itself with organizations moving to business agility—the quick realization of value predictably and sustainably, and with high quality.

Save Time With Tools + Templates
You may be the most brilliant project manager out there, but it doesn't count for much if it comes at the expense of everything else. You are more likely to establish a sustainable, long-term PM career when you can balance your life with your work. This workbook allows you to leverage agile principles to do that. Use in conjunction with the Agile Your Life webinar.
This simple tracker for software projects logs project status, review summaries, and important events. The sheet maintains resource utilization cost and completion percentages, ensuring that projects are within budget. The simplicity of the presentation helps the template be easily presented to higher management.

When companies move to an agile Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), they often remove the processes and analysis of their waterfall SDLC because, as the Agile Manifesto puts it, “They value individual and interactions over processes and tools.” Some of the rigor should be removed – waterfall processes can get bogged down with gates and sign-offs. However, caution must be exercised to not go too far against processes and analysis and rely just upon backlogs and user stories. Requirements and the analysis that leads to those requirements are just as essential in an agile project as they are in a waterfall project. The difference lies in how much requirements analysis is completed and the timing of it.
This article draws on well-known, basic project management concepts to introduce the high-level project management concepts of defined and empirical process control. It also attempts to contrast them and suggest how they might be used by PMPs in practice.
By leveraging artificial intelligence, agile teams can gain greater insights into potential risks, make more informed decisions, and improve outcomes. From identification and forecasting to monitoring and contingency planning, here are four ways that using AI can make a positive difference in agile risk management.
An organization is looking into AI to streamline story point estimation for its agile work. The leadership believe that AI is going to simplify the process, increase productivity and improve accountability. But its agile teams are pushing back.
Despite agile’s rise in popularity, there are still some detractors. There are also several myths and misconceptions about the traditional way of doing project management. Guess what? We need both approaches!
A business case describes the current situation, the various benefits of changing that situation, and then the options and their benefits. But if you need to write a business case, remember what matters to the person who reads it.
Successful PMOs of the future will have a very different mindset to how most PMOs operate today. Are you ready for that? Flexibility can only happen in an environment that supports and encourages it.
Organizations can improve project success rates through the strategic application of artificial intelligence tools, but they’ll improve their chances even more through agile-based change management practices and leadership.
One of the biggest challenges you face as a project manager is making sure all tasks are finished on time, within budget and—for those in the construction industry—safely. Task Talk puts the emphasis on duties rather than on people, and stresses how the duty is performed regardless of who is performing it.
