The Agile Enterprise: The need for new roles and a new organization structure

May 3, 2019 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

The Agile Enterprise is a new type of organization. A collaboration-based environment where some of the ‘command and control’ roles are not only obsolete but also can be a roadblock for the Agile transformation. The natural fear of change combined with protecting privileges or the job itself resulted in labelling as ‘Agile’ roles that are not only not defined in any Agile framework but are also the core components of the “waterfall” approach. An “Agile” PM that manages an “Agile” project team where the “Agile” BA writes requirements (called now user stories) and then the “Agile” UX specialist designs the user interface and then the “Agile” Architect analyse the “User Story” and assigns it to the “Agile” Developer who will pass the “increment” to the “Agile” Tester (sometimes wrongly called “Agile” QA engineer) is not an uncommon “Agile” implementation. Agile is a new and better way of building products, a radically new approach with a single role responsible for the design, build (including testing) and deployment called “Developer” and one person responsible for requirements definition and prioritisation called “Product Owner”. This webinar addresses what a real Agile Team should be with real world examples of Agile teams.

Project Stewardship

May 7, 2019 1:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

How an Acceptable Level of Scope Creep Trains Clients to Become Better Project Stewards and Allows PMs to Deliver Greater Value Scope creep is one of the top indicators of project failure. As budgets shrink and capacity flees, it is important that Project Managers manage and maintain client expectations while allowing and forecasting a reasonable level of creep in an effort to satisfy and add greater value to the client and customers. Participants will gain a framework for determining an allowable level of scope creep and assessing the impact on resources and interests. Additionally, participants will learn how to chart a client engagement path that develops clients into better project stewards.

white paper
by Kane Tomlin

Both law enforcement and the military rely on and make up part of the IC.

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: I am more in the manufacturing or fabrication part of project management, but often my teams and I are working with an IT team to create a hybrid product. It’s not that I need to do their work, it’s just that sometimes I feel stupid when I talk to the other team because I don’t understand some of the terms they are using. Or, once they explain them to me…I knew that idea all along, but I had heard it called by another name. How can I get a quick glimpse of what new ideas I need to know and what they are called without spending too much of my already overbooked day researching what to even learn?
