Sustainable project practices are about more than “being green”. Sustainability requires that we look beyond the scope, schedule, and budget of the temporary project and consider the larger “Triple Bottom Line” that projects operate within. The triple bottom line evaluates performance in a broader perspective considering economic, ecological, and social impacts otherwise known as the 3Ps - Profit, Planet, People. As the agents of change in organizations, Project Managers, are uniquely positioned to identify and lead the change that impacts your “Triple Bottom Line” while creating greater business value.

The drawbacks of the waterfall method have been rectified to overcome the challenges faced while using this particular method during project execution - specifically for industries where there is more chaos and the requirements are unclear or changing. This webinar will address the similarities and differences of the Waterfall and Agile methods.

One of the main criticism on the emphasis of detailed planning has been its unsuitability to situations and projects which are uncertain or developmental in nature.

A clean rear view mirror makes you a better driver. Are you making use of yours? Teams of 5 or 25, in Agile or traditional set-up, new to agile or in this for years - they all stop once in a while to look back and plan ahead. But not all get the magic results they expect. This webinar is about maximizing the effect of your retrospectives - how often to have them, how to set them up, how to make them useful and constructive. The presenter will review how to avoid hours of complaining or another meeting people try to get out of. It is about retrospectives people actually WANT to attend, about behaviors from real teams that made it and from some that didn't.
