The Agile Coach is a relatively new role; it is not very well defined and often overrated. From the first concept of 'coach' introduced in Extreme Programming (XP) which was more of a system architect to the Scrum Master in the service of the Team and the organization, the role morphed in many organizations to a pure consulting role. Most modern Agile frameworks are created as empirical approaches based on a very simple principle: fail fast, learn faster. What is the role of an Agile Coach in an Agile transformation? What skills and experience are required to add value to the process? These questions among others will be addressed in this webinar.

All of us know about business processes. Any business development starts with a process organization. Before starting a new project, we also have clearly defined processes and a clear understanding of these processes. We have these processes groups in each project. We need the system approach for the project execution. Understanding Project Management processes in the context of the organization's business processes is very important. It'll help us apply various Project management methodologies, and their effective combination, as well as it gives the possibility of flexible management. This webinar will show a point of view, answering the following questions. Which business processes are we have in the project? How to effectively integrate the project management processes into the business processes of the organization? What could we do for their evolvement?
We all know that life is not in black and white, nor is Project Management. Experienced Project Managers know when and how to adapt the project management tools and techniques so that they can help the most, are relevant, and add value to their projects and organizations. This presentation advocates for using Agile practices, even in waterfall projects, and gives examples from real life situations where specific practices were successfully used. The advantages and possible setbacks will be illustrated and discussed with the audience.
This session will walk the attendee through 10 practices that are sure to be problematic. Topics will include but are not limited to: 1. Including summary tasks in project sequencing; 2. Assigning resources to summary tasks; 3. Constraining activities rather than sequencing dynamically; 4. Scheduling project tasks as late as possible; 5. Leveling resources without analysis; 6. Inadequate baselining techniques; 7. Using elapsed durations for team schedules; 8. Incorrect calendar association resulting in incorrect schedules; 9. Organizing project tasks incorrectly forcing incorrect reports. 10. Dismissing Agile Tools Objectives: After attending this session the attendee should be able to: 1) identify inappropriate practices in their MS Project schedules. 2) Resolve issues created by these practices and 3) leverage their learning in future project plans by avoiding the recurrence of inappropriate practices.
As the complexity of project management continues to expand, Organizational Change Management (OCM) is becoming more ingrained in implementing projects. This is taking the entire topic of Stakeholder Engagement into new directions. We are moving beyond defining if the stakeholder is an advocate or an adversary, and trying to understand what is driving their position. Understanding the stakeholder’s organizational, and personal, culture is helping project evaluate the stakeholder perspective. This “Cultural Intelligence” of the project manager can greatly improve the effectiveness of the Change Management aspect of a project.
