Project Management has developed over the last century first in the area of construction ,engineering and manufacturing and later found applications in diverse fields some examples include health care , financial services ,government, nonprofits and information technology. The question that we can ask ourselves is "Is Project Management a generic discipline ". Over the last fifty years various professional bodies and associations in project management have propounded the idea that the processes are largely generic and can be equally applied to any industry or sector. Of course, it also appreciates that in some instances there are unique processes and practices limited to a particular sector. But is this thought shared by the practitioners and the community at large? The answer is yes to some extent but also no, judging from the divide that has developed between professional in the IT versus the Engineering and Construction sector each perceiving it the other as grossly different. Further, outside the project management community , project management is perceived as of importance only for delivery of products and services and does not share space with the c suite when considering it as a competence to implement an idea or strategy. Granted, this perception is changing but is slow, in some parts and not widespread.

For some, Agile started in 2002 as a revolution against "waterfall" with both (Agile and "waterfall") wrongly considered Project Management methodologies. While the Manifesto for Agile Software Development (aka THE "Agile Manifesto") was an important step in agile adoption, the reality is that most concepts considered "Agile" were in use for decades. Incremental and iterative software development had more than 3 decades of documented use, and the dreaded "waterfall" was more Agile than many modern frameworks. This webinar is a retrospective of Agile and Lean practices that were rediscovered when teams wanted to scale Agile towards the Enterprise level with the aim of learning from mistakes already made by others.
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.
