The Case for Project Risk Management: In Predictive (Traditional) vs. Adaptive (Agile) Life Cycle Approaches - Rescheduled

Dec 19, 2019 12:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Although the project failure rate has seen improvement over the last decade or so, roughly half continue to fail. As such, project risk management [which is designed to address risks that contribute to project failure] has gained significant interest over the same period. While perhaps one of the more challenging knowledge areas of the PMBOK®, project risk management is a key competency for professional project managers. This webinar will build on the learning concepts covered in the 03/14/19 webinar entitled ‘Predictive, Iterative and Adaptive Life Cycle Approaches: Managing Projects in the Knowledge Environment’ and will contrast project risk management across today’s two primary project life cycle approaches – Predictive (Traditional) and Adaptive (Agile) Project Life Cycles.

The Agile Enterprise: Managing Financial Aspects in Agile Projects

Jan 10, 2020 9:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Agile is sometimes introduced as a cheaper way of delivering projects, products, and services. Unlike the traditional approach of measuring the value delivered based on the planned deliverables, the budget spent, and meeting the critical milestones, Agile doesn't and shouldn't track the delivery in the same way. Agile is a new approach, and traditional project finance management may not be relevant or can become an impediment to agility. Agile is or should be based on trust, and in an Agile organization, most of the financial planning and reporting should not be necessary. However, very few organizations have the necessary conditions to abolish tight financial management. This webinar will propose a few financial management approaches for Agile projects, highlighting the necessity as well as the challenges of each of the proposed models.

The Agile Enterprise: Using Kanban and Kaizen with Business Teams

November 22, 2019 | 48:45 | Views: 1,056 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 3.82 / 5

Kanban and Kaizen are considered by some teams as the natural evolution from Scrum to an Enterprise Level Agile. While there are few Agile frameworks that adapted Kanban and Kaizen to software development as a scaling up approach, it is little known that these Lean Six Sigma practices originated in manufacturing more than 50 years ago. In fact, the 1990s Agile Enterprise used Kanban and Kaizen at scale for large teams and complex products, proving their utility.

You May Be Agile, But Are You Disciplined Agile?

by Kiron Bondale
November 15, 2019 | 60:36 | Views: 338 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.64 / 5

Start an online discussion about agile and the divide will become painfully apparent between those agile purists who believe that the only way to deliver value is through Scrum or similar frameworks and those traditionalists who believe that agile was just a passing, failed fad. PMI acquired Disciplined Agile (DA) in late 2019 and many of you are probably wondering what DA is and how it might be relevant to you, especially if you don't lead software development projects. This webinar will provide an overview of DA's pragmatic, choice driven approach to realizing value.

The Agile Enterprise: Using TRIZ for Business Teams

by Stelian Roman
November 08, 2019 | 61:04 | Views: 2,232 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.32 / 5

Agile was born from the necessity to adapt product development to market changes. In the 1990s Agile Enterprise, the Agility combined with Lean practices resulted in fast market release of products combined with efficiency delivered by waste reduction and improved development and build processes. Using Lean Six Sigma for innovation brought efficacy and efficiency. In any product development, systematical innovation is crucial to the competitiveness. Although TRIZ (Theory of Solving Inventive Problems) has been developed with special emphasis on manufacturing, it is after all an approach to product development and process improvement. TRIZ proved useful in process problem solving, so it can be useful for all project management issues and activities.

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.

The Value of Planning

by Scott Ambler

There can be significant value in planning, but it is possible to plan too much. Determining the right level should be based on a collection of factors such as the complexity and risk of the situation, the skills and experience of the people involved, and the uncertainty that you face.

You're Only as Agile as You Feel

by Mark Mullaly, Ph.D., PMP

We keep positioning agile as an either/or proposition. And we do that in particular when we think about agile as compared to waterfall. There is an assumption that not only is agile different, but that agile has to be different. And that's a problem.
