The Agile Enterprise: Scaling Agile to Project Level Part 1: Initiate

Feb 19, 2021 9:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Agile found its way into project delivery with the PMBOK® Guide and PMI certifications recognizing the growing adoption of agile practices. Most Agile frameworks, like Scrum, Crystal and XP, were conceived by developers for a small team of developers and do not cover the entire Project Lifecycle. A project is not limited to product delivery by a small team, and most Agile frameworks are challenged when scaling up to the enterprise level, especially in organizations with a mature Governance framework where a Project Management Office has the responsibility for Project Delivery. In the trenches, the famous 'mindset change' applies not only to people that used planned approaches but also to the people that started Agile in small product development teams that must learn the value of aligning their ways of doing things to Enterprise goals. This webinar is the first in a series of four webinars covering the project delivery phases. It is based on the author's 30+ years of experience as an agile practitioner, moving from managing Software Development teams to managing projects. The webinar will be an experience sharing exercise based on the fundamental principle that the best way to become Agile is by "doing it and helping others to do it".

The Agile Enterprise: Spotlight on Agile Implementation Failures

Oct 16, 2020 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Agile is often advertised as the silver bullet in the training class that will deliver "twice the scope in half the time." In principle, the topic of this webinar, agile implementation failures, may be unexpected from someone who used Agile practices long before they were called Agile and who was a champion of adoption of XP and Scrum in the early 2000s when Agile adoption was considered "crazy." One of the fundamental principles of Agile is to fail fast, learn, and recover. But accepting failure is not always as easy as it seems. When a manager “motivates” his team with "failure is not an option" or expects the Project Manager or the Scrum Master to be a "pusher" rather than a servant leader, learning from small mistakes becomes an important process. This webinar presents several situations when Agile failed, analyzing the root cause and what could have been done differently to avoid failure.

The Agile Enterprise: The Agile Executive - What Does it Mean?

Feb 28, 2020 9:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Agile transformation is an Organizational Change, it follows the rules of any Business Transformation and needs Executive support in order to succeed. This webinar is a presentation of the Agile transformation that the author was involved in, focusing on the role and the importance of executive support in Agile adoption.

The Agile Enterprise: The Impact of Robot Process Automation to Agile

Sep 5, 2019 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Robot Process Automation (RPA) is one of the recent practices that is usually combined with Agile adoption as part of Digital Transformations. Sometimes implemented as the 'old' workflows, RPA can easily become the famous GIGO (Garbage In - Garbage Out), speeding-up unnecessary processes rather than providing value for the business. This webinar analyzes the benefits of RPA, combined with Agile adoption, using a parallel with the introduction of robotization in manufacturing. It is also an analysis of how/if RPA and Artificial Intelligence can be used in Project Management to improve the project delivery process.

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.

The Agile Enterprise: The Role of the PMO in Agile Transformations

Apr 5, 2019 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

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.

The Agile Enterprise: Time capsule - A Review of Last Century Agile Concepts

Dec 18, 2020 9:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

For some, Agile started in 2002 as a revolution against "waterfall" with both (Agile and "waterfall") wrongly considered Project Management methodologies. While the Manifesto for Agile Software Development (aka THE "Agile Manifesto") was an important step in agile adoption, the reality is that most concepts considered "Agile" were in use for decades. Incremental and iterative software development had more than 3 decades of documented use, and the dreaded "waterfall" was more Agile than many modern frameworks. This webinar is a retrospective of Agile and Lean practices that were rediscovered when teams wanted to scale Agile towards the Enterprise level with the aim of learning from mistakes already made by others.
