The expectations and responsibilities of a Business Analyst (BA) are extremely versatile and vary based on the type of project that is being completed. This session covers the similarities and differences of the BA role in each of the predictive, incremental, and iterative project approaches. Focus is placed on working in the virtual environment and driving value centric delivery. Borrowing the “Context Matters and Choice is Good” concept from Disciplined Agile, we explore how a BA analyzes the Context of the situation, defines an iteration goal of what is to be accomplished, and then selects the best approach to achieve that goal. This three step approach requires a large range of skills and knowledge that helps define a distinguished Business Analyst.

The first 100 days for any leader entering office marks a major milestone. He/she is judged on the performance during that period and the opinion set during that time persists throughout his/her tenure. As a PMO leader, you should take this standard upon yourself. This will most likely not be set as an expectation by your stakeholders, but this plan of action will be largely appreciated by them.
There are hundreds of different Agile Certifications from competing organizations. Even the authors of the Scrum Framework decided to have separate certifications, and later to create various levels. Due to its popularity, the Scrum Master role transcended the Scrum Framework and is now included in many other frameworks - even when those frameworks don't include a Scrum team. This webinar is a cost/benefit analysis of how Agile Certifications can help project delivery, offering examples of when a certification helps and what a Project Manager should look for when choosing a certification.

The global pandemic has brought projects to center stage, making it clear that we are all project managers, and leaders are all executive sponsors. At work, in our personal lives, and on the news, projects were suddenly everywhere, and we were part of them. Individuals and organizations have learned to come together and collaborate in new ways to develop previously unimagined solutions to unanticipated problems, as demonstrated by the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine-development project. The pandemic has shown the world how project managers can deliver new ideas and change infrastructure and systems at an accelerated pace.

Coaching was not necessarily a role and practice that existed when Agile started as a new approach in the 1970s. Agile began as an alternative to Lean Six Sigma which is the very mindset that is coming back to Agile as a way to 'scale' frameworks developed for small teams of software developers. Like some other practices that originated in Extreme Programming (XP), Story Points and burndown charts, the Coach role evolved to something that is hard to define. From an advisor to Senior Management, to a Trainer, or a salesman for various Agile certifications, the Agile Coach is almost always specific to software development. Agile Manufacturing and Lean Six Sigma, which may be considered much larger Business Transformations, don't necessarily have a Coach for each unit of the organization. This webinar is a Project Manager's analysis of the Agile Coach, Business Coach, and Lean Six Sigma's Master Black Belt roles.
