The Agile Enterprise: What is different in an Agile Project?

Mar 8, 2019 9:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

The concept of the Agile Project Manager is almost universally accepted, at least in IT projects; although there is no Agile Project Management Methodology. Traditional approaches like PMBoK and PRINCE2 had always the capability to use techniques that are part of the Agile delivery: incremental and iterative development, early delivery of increments of the project, multi-functional teams, inspect and adapt, etc. Most Agile frameworks, like Scrum, were created by and for software development and are challenged when it comes to complex projects where Risk Management, Stakeholder Management, Procurement, and Financial Management skills and knowledge are crucial for a successful delivery. The role of Project Manager is as important as ever for the success of any initiative defined by scope, time, and budget - otherwise a project. Agile may or may not be the best delivery approach, but if it is, how is an Agile project different ? This webinar is trying to answer this question using real life examples from IT and Business projects.

Backlog / Story Grooming

by NK Shrivastava, Phillip George
January 09, 2019 | 61:12 | Views: 4,200 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.42 / 5

Have you or your Agile teams had trouble refining requirements on an Agile project? Are your teams struggling with user stories and tasks that are too large for them to handle well? If so, you and your teams need more guidance to implement backlog / user story grooming. Backlog grooming is a step-by-step process of taking high-level (“coarse-grained”) requirements and refining them to lower-level user stories and tasks (“fine-level”) that are ready to put into a sprint. In RefineM’s Backlog/Story Grooming presentation, attendees will learn how to work the process to achieve fine-grained requirements that are ready just in time. The key to success is leveraging tools and techniques as well as the expertise of your team to refine requirements iteratively.

Drunken PM

by Dave Prior

Drunken Boxing for Project Managers “The main feature of the drunkard boxing is to hide combative hits in drunkard-like, unsteady movements and actions so as to confuse the opponent. The secret of this style of boxing is maintaining a clear mind while giving a drunken appearance.” Yeah... just like that… but with network diagrams and burndown charts… and a wee bit less vodka.

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 Grace Willis, MBA, SPC4.5, SA, CSM, ICP, CSSGB, PMP

Something is going wrong with business agility in many organizations. Everyone is jumping on the bandwagon and saying they’re “agile,” but in reality they’re not.
