Regardless of whether they are quantitative or qualitative, when a project’s benefits are managed and realized, an organization ensures that the time, effort and monetary resources invested in projects have the greatest possible business return. Yet far too few organizations have an effective benefits realization management process in place.

Do you have cross-functional teams who can get to "done" for features? Too many organizations still organize by function or component. That makes it difficult for agile projects to succeed or an agile transition to stick. As an agile project manager, you can use the collaboration assumed by agile to help teams succeed. Teams don't just become self-organized, cross-functional, happy teams. They have to work to get that way. In this talk, Johanna will help you understand some of the challenges teams face, and how agile practices help. She'll also help you understand some of the practices that don't help, such as multitasking and distributed teams.

We know that a well-defined strategy is critical to an organization’s success. We also know that same strategy will be achieved through a series of projects and programs.  However, what happens when that same organization doesn’t develop the plan to prioritize, communicate or implement those projects? Craig explores the link between strategy and projects and the importance of having a plan to actually implement those projects. Without a good plan, your strategy is toast.
