The Agile Enterprise: What is "Agile" Project Management?

May 21, 2021 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Agile is still a hot topic. Started in the late 70s as an alternative to Lean Six Sigma, Agile become popular in the second decade of the 21st Century when Scrum became the de facto Agile delivery framework. Like most popular Agile frameworks, Scrum started as a software product development approach used by a small software development team to build new products. Scrum remains at the core of most Agile frameworks with the Scrum Master role being the flag bearer of any Agile Team. Nowadays, many projects have a software development component and a software development (sub) team. From the Project Management perspective, the Scrum framework doesn't handle some important project areas like Financial Management, Procurement, and Risk Management; therefore, a Project Manager is still required. The term "Agile Project Management" is widely used these days. Although, most of the time, it refers to small software implementation projects. This webinar is a comparative analysis of various aspects of a project from an Agile Perspective, attempting to define what differentiates an "Agile" Project from a standard project. The webinar will also address skills that the Project Manager needs to acquire or develop and practices that must be avoided when using an adaptive delivery approach.

Despite claims to the contrary, the need for governance does not disappear for agile projects. Your project sponsors have a right to know the status of the health and risk of their investments. But trying to blend traditional agile methods such as Scrum with traditional stage gate approaches can cause frustration for both project teams and their stakeholders. Disciplined Agile (DA) provides straightforward and common sense ideas for applying governance in a lightweight fashion for agile projects. This webinar explores these lean governance strategies using the Disciplined Agile tool kit.

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.

Distributed PM: Intentional Interaction

Topic Teasers Vol. 140: New Year, New Team Rules

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

Question: Due to my special skill sets, I am often asked to move between teams, most of them virtual. Since each team functions differently (especially as we try to survive by being more flexible and responsive to the customer and also work from home), I find it difficult to remember how each team interacts and how to know the unspoken rules they use to run their projects and their online meetings. Is there any method that a team can use so that members, plus those of us who come in and out as needed, know how to adjust our behavior—and how they can standardize their own?
