Agile was born from the necessity to adapt product development to market changes. In the 1990s Agile Enterprise, the Agility combined with Lean practices resulted in fast market release of products combined with efficiency delivered by waste reduction and improved development and build processes. Using Lean Six Sigma for innovation brought efficacy and efficiency. In any product development, systematical innovation is crucial to the competitiveness. Although TRIZ (Theory of Solving Inventive Problems) has been developed with special emphasis on manufacturing, it is after all an approach to product development and process improvement. TRIZ proved useful in process problem solving, so it can be useful for all project management issues and activities.

The Agile Enterprise: Using Risk Management Standards - A Look at the Role of PMI and ISO Standards in Agile
Most Agile frameworks developed for small software teams (relative to the size of an organisation) believe that adopting Agile is a Risk Mitigation approach and/or that in Agile risk is reduced compared with the traditional planned approach, wrongly limited to "waterfall" software development. Apart from the fact that there is no empirical or scientific evidence of that, most Agile practitioners can't or won't look at the dual aspect of risk (positive and negative), missing one of the significant benefits of Agile – opportunities management, or in other words, positive risks. Considering Risk Management from the Agile perspective, this webinar is a review of how Risk Management practices and standards can be scaled down and adopted by Agile Teams.
We live in an age of digital disruption where the success of every enterprise depends on its ability to create new digital applications/products/services and leaders must learn how to teach and coach, instead of direct and manage.

This innovative board game challenges players to build and launch a rocket to Mars. Players form Agile teams, collaborating through “Sprints” to complete important tasks. The game tracks each team's score, along with other metrics used in Agile, such as “Velocity”. In order to win the game and successfully launch your rocket, your team will have to demonstrate characteristics of actual successful Agile teams.
Robot Process Automation (RPA) is one of the recent practices that is usually combined with Agile adoption as part of Digital Transformations. 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.
Agile is often 'sold' as a way to improve quality of products and services. One of the fundamental Agile principles is that continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.
