SMEs represent about 90% of businesses and more than 50% of employment worldwide. SMEs contribute up to 40% of national income (GDP) in emerging economies. SMEs providing 70% of jobs and about half of economic activity across the globe are being hit hardest by the fall-out of the pandemic. SMEs are changing their business models in order to adapt to the post pandemic scenario. Solutions are needed to give them the support they need to survive. One such extremely effective and contemporary solution can be the adoption of Agile Methodologies.

Looking at the achievements and evolution of Agile Manufacturing, we can hopefully forecast how the popular version of Agile introduced by the Manifesto for Agile Software Development will evolve. This webinar is a comparison of Enterprise Agile used in Manufacturing and other business domains, like Construction and Health, with the team-based Agile used in Software development.

In this installment of the Discover PMI – Ask Us Anything Series, we will provide an overview of PMI’s Certification offerings through the Certification Framework. PMI was founded by volunteers in 1969 and since then has provided certifications and credentials to allow individuals to differentiate themselves in the marketplace. Today’s employment market has been impacted by the disruption of traditional business models due to the continued move to a project oriented economy and global events impacting supply chains and the way individuals work. No longer does the ‘corporate ladder’ meet the needs of employees. The Certification Framework provides a view of the more ‘squiggly’ career paths that are coming into focus now and should be with us in the future. In this session, the Certification team will introduce and describe the breadth of products available and provide an opportunity for you to interact with the Product Owners.
If you are interested in learning more about possible next steps in the profession, this webinar will be a must-attend event for you.

This webinar is a cost/benefit analysis of how Agile Certifications can help project delivery, offering examples of when a certification helps and what a Project Manager should look for when choosing a certification.

The expectations and responsibilities of a Business Analyst (BA) are extremely versatile and vary based on the type of project that is being completed. This session covers the similarities and differences of the BA role in each of the predictive, incremental, and iterative project approaches. Focus is placed on working in the virtual environment and driving value centric delivery. Borrowing the “Context Matters and Choice is Good” concept from Disciplined Agile, we explore how a BA analyzes the Context of the situation, defines an iteration goal of what is to be accomplished, and then selects the best approach to achieve that goal. This three step approach requires a large range of skills and knowledge that helps define a distinguished Business Analyst.

The first 100 days for any leader entering office marks a major milestone. He/she is judged on the performance during that period and the opinion set during that time persists throughout his/her tenure. As a PMO leader, you should take this standard upon yourself. This will most likely not be set as an expectation by your stakeholders, but this plan of action will be largely appreciated by them.
