We often think of sustainably externally - on what we need to do to save the planet from the increasing impacts of climate change. There is also the question of our own personal sustainability. How do we sustain ourselves? How do we manage in the face of increased pressure, growing demands and shrinking capacity to respond? This webinar explores how to manage and sustain our own capacity and ability to thrive.
You may have heard that “90% of a project manager’s work is communication.” But, have you heard why communication is so important and what is good project management communication? In this webinar, the presenter explains why communication is no longer just the transfer of information and giving directives to project teams. Modern communication theory is based upon creating shared understanding – “the coordinated management of meaning.” The presenter gives practical tools and methods for creating understanding among your project team and stakeholders. With understanding comes better project task execution and more support from project sponsors, customers, and stakeholders.

Scaling Agile practices beyond software development teams and IT departments is a growing trend, and the Agile Enterprise is a reality rather than a goal. However, the transition from planned approach to Agile is a painful change, and PMO can provide support for Agile rather than be perceived as an archaic team supporting “waterfall”. Once the organisation decides to adopt Agile, the PMO should be the champion of the transformation process, providing support to the Project Managers with less experience with Agile delivery while ensuring that governance requirements are met. This webinar is a summary of the presenter’s experience in organisations transitioning to Agile.
Part two of a two-part series. Attendees will use real life examples to practice spotting strengths and will walk away with practical tools to use when working with stakeholders, team-members, sponsors and people outside their workplace too!
How can you structure your large, in-house software developers to make agility flourish? Traditionally, software development is organized into short-term project teams that draw from a pool of specialized talent. Developers often work on multiple projects simultaneously. The problem? Project delays often create lags that ripple across multiple teams, creating inefficiencies and frustration. Moreover, jumping from project to project forces our brains to switch gears, meaning we work harder to function at a lower level. Research suggests 40-80% of productivity is lost in context switching. In contrast, “product teams” are assembled for the long haul. Because teams focus on addressing business problems versus delivering a set of functions, they gain a broader perspective to understand requirements and deliver the desired results. They also suffer less from context switching, resulting in 60-80% gains in productivity. Perhaps more important: knowledge, collaboration and satisfaction grow within cohesive long-lived teams. So how do projects get executed within multiple product teams? Typically, project requirements are divided into epics that go into the product backlog of relevant products. Product owners manage requirements while project managers oversee projects across product teams. In this way, the focus shifts to managing the work—not the people—creating self-empowered teams who foster agility across the enterprise.
