VUCA and Project Management Standards

Jun 3, 2020 11:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

VUCA , an acronym that stands for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity, has become a buzzword in management and business circles. It has added a new dimension to management principles and practice this requires a fresh approach to adapt to the new situations that are emerging in business and industry. Over the years project management standards have been adapting to industry practices and through its revisions introducing new topics and areas of knowledge. The objective of the standards has been to present information that is relevant and valid for today's operations. Various project management standards have been studied to assess if the four parameters of VUCA have been included and discussed and if they are adequate for the practising project manager to function effectively.

The Agile Enterprise: Combining Disciplined Agile Delivery with the PMBOK® Guide

by Stelian Roman
May 08, 2020 | 60:35 | Views: 1,279 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.27 / 5

Disciplined Agile Delivery is the 'new' Agile framework adopted by PMI. Although currently not as popular as Scaled Scrum, Disciplined Agile can be seen a competitor to Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), another framework presenting itself as an evolution of Agile/Scrum to the Enterprise Level. This webinar is an analysis of Disciplined Agile from a Project Manager's point of view - how Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) can be used to deliver projects, not necessarily software development projects. The framework is analyzed from the Agile Enterprise perspective looking at how DAD combines 'old' practices, like Lean, with Agile Manifesto values and principles. The webinar also explores how the PMBOK® Guide can augment DAD to become an Enterprise level, industry agnostic Agile delivery option.

Per the Agile Business Consortium, business agility allows businesses to adapt quickly to market changes; respond rapidly and flexibly to customer demands; adapt and lead change in a productive and cost-effective way without compromising quality; and continuously be at a competitive advantage. The primary reason for moving to Agile is to achieve faster business value and keep you ahead of the competition. Agile is built for change - fundamentally, it is about creating Business Agility. It enables the enterprise to deliver projects more efficiently, with relentless focus on business value and providing the highest return on investment. Whether it is a software project, a new service offering or a new product, Agile’s twelve principles and three pillars (transparency, inspection, adaptation) are designed to reduce money spent on undesirable or unusable features which were built based on outdated requirements.

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.
