Project Management has developed over the last century first in the area of construction ,engineering and manufacturing and later found applications in diverse fields some examples include health care , financial services ,government, nonprofits and information technology. The question that we can ask ourselves is "Is Project Management a generic discipline ". Over the last fifty years various professional bodies and associations in project management have propounded the idea that the processes are largely generic and can be equally applied to any industry or sector. Of course, it also appreciates that in some instances there are unique processes and practices limited to a particular sector. But is this thought shared by the practitioners and the community at large? The answer is yes to some extent but also no, judging from the divide that has developed between professional in the IT versus the Engineering and Construction sector each perceiving it the other as grossly different. Further, outside the project management community , project management is perceived as of importance only for delivery of products and services and does not share space with the c suite when considering it as a competence to implement an idea or strategy. Granted, this perception is changing but is slow, in some parts and not widespread.
The 3P’s to Success (Purpose, People, Performance) is a business philosophy promoted in the book ‘The Business of Portfolio Management – Boosting Organizational Value’. The project economy can scale upwards so that value-based portfolio management becomes ‘a way of doing business’. However, that needs to be integrated business objectives. That is best done via a modern light version of a balanced scorecard for planning and reporting purposes. This presentation is focussed on the design, development, and deployment of a modern light balanced scorecard that allows for organizational-wide performance to be shown and communicated. EPMO and portfolio leaders in particular will benefit from its content and messages.

Scaling Agile has been a hot topic in the last 3 to 5 years. Organizations that have successful software deliveries are trying to spread the success of the Scrum Team(s) beyond technology departments. On the other hand, laggards, teams and organizations that didn't embrace Agile when it became clear that it is the future, are cutting corners and launching mammoth programs to "do" Agile. Scrum, the core of the most recent "scaled" frameworks, was designed for teams of less than 10 people developing software products. Even at that size, it is "difficult to master", according to its authors. This webinar takes a look at Agile scaling from both perspectives: agile software development created for small homogenous teams AND agile manufacturing conceived in the last century for large companies as a replacement to Lean. The webinar is based on the author's 30+ years’ of experience as a practitioner. From manufacturing to software development and then to projects, this webinar is an analysis of the famous mindset change and the challenges and lessons learned while doing it and helping others to do it.
