October 01, 2021 | 60:17 | Views: 8,609 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.29 / 5

What can project managers do to identify and mitigate third-party cyber risks? As enterprises continue to outsource services, third-party cyber risks continue to rise. For example, cybercriminals are increasingly attacking enterprise networks by using third-parties as back-door entryways to networks. However, by learning about current trends in mitigating third-party cyber risks, project managers can mitigate these risks and increase the likelihood of their project succeeding.

In this webinar, we will show you, with examples, how product features are defined using the user story mapping exercise to develop user stories. Once user stories are written, then they can be grouped into releases, with the first release being your MVP or Minimum Viable Product. During the webinar we will describe use an example to develop a story map and group the stories into a product backlog. The product backlog will keep the team focused on delivering value to customers.

The Agile Enterprise: Scaled Agile Frameworks - What are They Scaling?

‘Scaled Agile’ is one of the most misunderstood concepts. Agile adoption surveys indicate that Scrum, or some combination of it, is used by 70--80% of Agile Teams. None of the 'scaled' frameworks is mentioned as 'used', only as an option to 'scale'. Agile, a new approach in 1970 to scale down manufacturing processes and make them more ‘Agile,’ was created to improve Lean Six Sigma. Out of Software development, the team frameworks are now 'scaling up' by reverting to Lean Practices like Kanban, Theory of Constraints, Voice of Customer, Kaizen, etc. The Six Sigma component that is the most mature and confirmed way of measuring the impact of process improvement initiatives was left out. This is possibly partly because it requires skills and knowledge that can't be acquired in a 2-3 days course, partly because its practices are associated with manufacturing, and it is as seen incompatible with software development. In addition, Lean goals (eliminate waste, adoption of standardized processes) are completely opposed to the Agile mindset that fundamentally embraces change, allows good waste, and is against reliance on standardized processes, This webinar is an analysis of lessons learned from using Lean Six Sigma to measure process improvement initiatives in software development including a comparison between Agile and Planned approaches in a large system development. It is a project manager's view that is probably different than what is heard in conferences and training courses.

Black Swans in Your Project: Understanding, Identification and Management of Extreme Unknown Unknowns

by Arturas Kuliesas
September 21, 2021 | 59:18 | Views: 10,267 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.50 / 5

Following in the footsteps of a seminal book The Black Swan by Nicholas Nassim Taleb, I will demonstrate key failures of traditional risk management and stakeholder management practices in projects where extreme unknown unknowns are concerned. A special attention would be given to explaining how identification of Black Swans and planning the response for them is different from the traditional techniques we apply with tractable risks (known unknowns). More importantly, I will address the Project Management Principle of „Embrace Adaptability and Resiliency“ in the 7th edition of Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) as the fundamental, if not perfect, remedy to negative impacts of Black Swans that we need to apply for the benefit of the project and its stakeholders.

A Manager’s Guide to Supporting Agile Transformation

In this session, we explore the roots of the management discipline as we know it today. We pinpoint the potential areas of conflict between agile values and traditional management. Then we turn that upside-down and look for areas where managers can support and drive forward the organizational adoption of agile leveraging the Disciplined Agile tool kit.

Project HEADWAY: Can Waterfall And Agile Co-Exist?

by Mark Mullaly, Ph.D., PMP
September 16, 2021 | 61:00 | Views: 9,728 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.67 / 5

The domains of waterfall and agile often appear as two solitudes, not overlapping at all. More often they appear to be warring camps, decrying the other and advocating for their preferred way of working. This gets reinforced by the adherents of one practice or the other (often most influenced by which perspective they learned first). One is considered good, the other bad, and there is very little middle space to explore common ground, let along find a potential way of working together. And yet, work together they can. Both strategies have a place, both have a role, and both deliver value. They key is in understanding what each provides, how they are similar and in what important ways they are different, and how commonalities can be found. If you’re stuck in the middle—or you are wondering what all the fuss is about—you won’t want to miss this webinar.

Descend to Soar – Why Humility is Important to Your Career Success

As powerful as humility is, a common misconception is that it's a sign of weakness. Some think that people who are humble behave as if they are inferior to others. As a result, humility is not regarded as a critical skill. But the fact is that there is an incredible amount of courage and strength involved in the practice of humility especially for those in leadership. As a leader in the project management space, it is critical for you to understand that humility is the foundation of great leaders, and the basis for world-class customer service. This webinar will highlight how humility can take your career to heights you may not have imagined.

Situational Problem Solving Versus Problem Prevention - How to Best Use Your Energy

by Steven Mitchell
September 08, 2021 | 59:59 | Views: 11,607 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.65 / 5

In this webinar we uncover that all problems can be broken down into a few categories, each with their own solution technique. Knowing this assists with quick problem identification and action, which will properly utilize our time and efforts. Likewise, we will review which prevention methods work best for each problem category, and our unique situation. We will understand how to solve problems while maintaining relationships, instead of compromising relationships to solve problems.
