Supply Chains are the back bone of economies across the world. At the onset of COVID-19 pandemic, we have witnessed how the supply chains collapsed in a short span of time leading the world to a disastrous condition. Many experts termed this phenomenon as Black Swan, nevertheless the world needs to formulate robust strategies in order that we do not get into this disaster in future again. Question is how do we make our Supply Chains resilient to absorb future shocks? My research undertaken on this subject has dealt with various Lean, Green and Agile Methodologies to recommend a frame work which may rescue the future supply chains from the ill effects which the COVID 19 Pandemic brought to the world. This session shall address the importance of Lean, Green and Agile to bring resilience for global supply chains. It shall elaborate on the effectiveness of Lean, Green and Agile methodologies through our work employing validated Research Methodologies during the time of the pandemic. It shall also enumerate on how Lean, Green and Agile methodologies can be suitably adapted for revival of Supply Chains in post- pandemic era.

Requirements in Agile

white paper
by Joy Beatty Candase Hokanson

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.

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: I thought that getting a promotion would be great! However, it’s a totally different part of the organization, and what worked for me in terms of evaluating my old team is creating some problems—both with the people and with the results I send to management.
