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.

It is one thing to manage or lead in a professional setting. It is an entirely different thing to lead in a volunteer setting. Volunteers are there of their own free will, and choose whether (and how much) to participate in any given project. Their choice to be involved is wanting to contribute, to be a part of something and to make a difference. They will only be present to the extent that they believe that is true. The experience is also a social one; it is where people look to connect, to find community and to find like minds. That means that leading in a volunteer situation requires a deft touch. We can't require, expect or demand. And while we often don't have much control at work, no where is that reality more clearly demonstrated than in a voluntary setting. This presentation explores successful strategies for leading volunteers.

This webinar takes a step back and looks at Agile as a team, company, and personal philosophy. The Agile Manifesto and Principles will be explored and analyzed for the intent behind them. We will look at Agile in terms of its adaptability, flexibility, and structure for concepts of risk mitigation, communication, and cost savings. We will discuss the broad ideas of, and distinct differences between, collaboration, negotiations, and interactions. Finally, the webinar will dive a little into project methodologies to see how they bring the philosophy of Agile into practice.
Prior research suggests that information technology (IT) project managers (PMs) often fail to take adequate steps to manage project risks and that this may contribute to the high failure rate associated with IT projects. In this presentation, I will discuss PMI-funded research that explores how IT PMs’ mental construal affects four key IT project risk management activities: (1) risk identification, (2) risk impact assessment, (3) risk response planning, and (4) risk response enactment. This research contributes to our understanding of IT project risk management and suggests ways for improving IT project risk management practices
Working on social good projects has always propelled individuals and organizations with the satisfaction of giving back but also created the much necessary positive impact for the society, resulting in community development and growth. The year 2020 has been the darkest in the history, among many adversities that hit mankind, COVID-19 has been the deadliest. The need for creating connections (and retaining the existing ones) has never been that immense before not only to learn how to survive but to transform, to adapt and more importantly keeping a tighter grip on our sanity by helping each other and providing that feeling of togetherness in the wilderness.
This webinar will start with defining the 3Rs of listening: relate, reflect and reshape as a technique for you to gather valuable customer insights. We will use this feedback to introduce the value proposition canvas as a tool to analyze your customers’ pains and gains. Once you understand the customer problem, it is time to identify the product features that will address the problem. In the end, you will be able to build the link between your customer, your product and your project, to better position your organization for a successful delivery.
