The Agile Enterprise: Using Risk Management Standards - A Look at the Role of PMI and ISO Standards in Agile

Sep 20, 2019 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Most Agile frameworks developed for small software teams (relative to the size of an organisation) believe that adopting Agile is a Risk Mitigation approach and/or that in Agile risk is reduced compared with the traditional planned approach, wrongly limited to "waterfall" software development. Apart from the fact that there is no empirical or scientific evidence of that, most Agile practitioners can't or won't look at the dual aspect of risk (positive and negative), missing one of the significant benefits of Agile – opportunities management, or in other words, positive risks. Considering Risk Management from the Agile perspective, this webinar is a review of how Risk Management practices and standards can be scaled down and adopted by Agile Teams.

Mastering the Art of Negotiations – Part 2

by Dana Bernstein
September 06, 2019 | 56:38 | Views: 771 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.75 / 5

Negotiating is an extension of building community. You will not get anything you want if the other person feels slighted or if they do not think they are getting an equitable deal. You will have to work harder to get people MORE of what they want so you can have MORE of what you want. Not everything in the negotiation has to be a down-and-out battle between you and the vendor. Be flexible, and the vendor will usually follow suit. Negotiating specifications with a vendor is not easy as you both have your own agendas. This process of negotiating the project’s requirements starts with the first phone call and continues until the last bill is paid.
