The Agile Enterprise: Using Agile to Deliver Large Cross Departmental Projects

Nov 6, 2020 9:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Most Agile frameworks, like Scrum, Crystal and XP, were conceived by developers for a small team of developers. With the inherent maturity of the agile concept, 'old' practices, such as Lean, were employed to scale Agile beyond a team of 5-9 software developers. SAFe and Disciplined Agile are good examples of augmenting Agile with Lean, at the cost of restricting agility to ensure scalability and financial viability. Some Lean practices, like Kanban, were re-discovered and are considered by some practitioners as the next agile step. Agile beyond software development is not necessarily as easy as you hear in conferences. In the trenches the famous 'mindset change' is both ways: Agile must also learn to accept other ways of doing things and adapt to the needs of non-technical teams.

The Agile Enterprise: Spotlight on Agile Implementation Failures

by Stelian Roman
October 16, 2020 | 61:31 | Views: 2,164 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.44 / 5

Agile is often advertised as the silver bullet in the training class that will deliver "twice the scope in half the time." In principle, the topic of this webinar, agile implementation failures, may be unexpected from someone who used Agile practices long before they were called Agile and who was a champion of adoption of XP and Scrum in the early 2000s when Agile adoption was considered "crazy." One of the fundamental principles of Agile is to fail fast, learn, and recover. But accepting failure is not always as easy as it seems. When a manager “motivates” his team with "failure is not an option" or expects the Project Manager or the Scrum Master to be a "pusher" rather than a servant leader, learning from small mistakes becomes an important process. This webinar presents several situations when Agile failed, analyzing the root cause and what could have been done differently to avoid failure.

Agile Human Resources: A Disciplined Viewpoint

Your organization is on the path towards greater agility. All aspects of an organization can benefit from greater agility, and this includes your approach to human resources. Your approach to appraisals, the relationships that project managers have with other team members, the way that you recruit, and even the way that you refer to people all change in an agile manner. In this webinar PMI’s Scott Ambler interviews Pierre Neis, Agile HR and Agile Transformation expert.

Nowadays, agile is a very trendy topic, and there are over a hundred certifications and thousands of courses teaching you how to be Agile, usually by learning a framework. Like any other skill or expertise, mastering Agile requires more than a course and the guide upon which it is generally based. Scrum, the most used Agile framework, is described by its authors as "lightweight, simple to understand but difficult to master," and any practitioner with more than a couple of years in the Agile trenches knows that is neither simple nor easy. This webinar is a collection of real life situations where traditional teams moved to Agile frameworks. The webinar is an analysis of the human aspect of transitioning to a new way of working in parallel with learning new technologies, products, and programming languages while last but not least having the management pressure to deliver.

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 Truth About the Agile/Hybrid Divide

by Michael Wood

Critics on both sides of the agile/hybrid aisle seem to be somewhat jaded and often misinformed. The truth is that successful project managers have always used what works best given the situation. Thus, long before the term "hybrid" found its way into the vernacular, it has always been the way most PMs have operated.
