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.

In this session, Jody Temple White, an experienced citizen developer, will explain key concepts from the Citizen Development Body of Knowledge and how they were applied to an actual business case. She will walk through each of the key steps – from ideation, to suitability assessments to requirements gathering – and highlight how the tools and methodologies developed by PMI help provide structure and governance to the process.

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.
When you belong to a toxic team, you can almost feel it in the air the moment you step onto your floor. It’s immediately draining. During this webinar, we will walk through our emotions first.

We as Project Managers consider ethics as our guidelines on how to deal in different situations, the new technology comes with big opportunities and challenges at the same time. Algorithms, big data, Artificial intelligence, social media, process automation create ethical dilemmas. How can people keep their privacy and deal with technology, how the companies deal with the data ethically? We can see how technology like robots, the internet of things and others take the jobs and it will continue taking all the routine jobs, millions of people around the globe will be jobless because of the digital transformation, how can the companies and organizations deal ethically in such situation. In this presentation, we will present the solution for organizations to make the balance between the efficiency and to deal ethically with the people.
Our “Getting Under the Hood” series continues with a webinar that will explore how the standard and the guide content work together. Over the past five webinars, we’ve walked through the different sections in development, previewed the new PMIstandards+TM and covered value delivery. In this session we are going to talk about how it all fits together in practice. Join Development Team members Cyndi Dionisio, Betsy Kaufmann and Nick Clemens as they talk about how you can use information from the draft standard and guide to drive value from your projects and for your organization.
Agile: the silver bullet in the training class that will deliver "twice the scope in half the time" only by a shift in the "mindset" and throwing out centuries of knowledge. The reality is that transformations as disruptive and complex as Agile adoption are neither new nor that different from other enterprise transformations, some even called such changes “revolutions” - like mechanization, automatization and even the last century introduction of a new tool called "computer" in the workplace. Management science, Psychology, Organizational Change Management and Risk Management are just a few of the sciences that studied and found ways to support cultural changes at the enterprise level. This webinar is a reflection on how Agile can use past knowledge and also contribute to the "mindset change" required to survive in a highly competitive and continuously changing economy.
