The Project Manifesto - The Guiding Principles of the Project Economy

Jan 8, 2020 10:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

We are witnessing the rise of projects as the main unit of work, as well as the essential model to deliver change and create value for individuals, organizations, and society at large. Despite this surge in project activities and project spending, the risk of project failure continues to be huge and will continue to increase unless organizations and governments embrace advanced project leadership practices. Widely used management disciplines are often linked to a few simple frameworks that can be easily understood, and applied, not only by managers but also by the majority of individuals. Porter’s Five Forces is a great example. In contrast, project management methods have tended to be too complex to be easily understood and applied by non-experts. Under these circumstances, it is not surprising that we saw the rise of agile, triggered by the Agile Manifesto, in February 2001 by 17 independent-minded software practitioners. Considering that this year is the 50th Anniversary of the creation of the Project Management Institute, it is time that we co-create The Project Manifesto.

The Agile Enterprise: Friends and Foes - What are Agile Coaches and when do we need them?

Dec 12, 2019 9:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

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.

ADVERTISEMENTS

"Impartial observers from other planets would consider ours an utterly bizarre enclave if it were populated by birds, defined as flying animals, that nevertheless rarely or never actually flew. They would also be perplexed if they encountered in our seas, lakes, rivers and ponds, creatures defined as swimmers that never did any swimming. But they would be even more surprised to encounter a species defined as a thinking animal if, in fact, the creature very rarely indulged in actual thinking."

- Steve Allen
