The domains of waterfall and agile often appear as two solitudes, not overlapping at all. More often they appear to be warring camps, decrying the other and advocating for their preferred way of working. This gets reinforced by the adherents of one practice or the other (often most influenced by which perspective they learned first). One is considered good, the other bad, and there is very little middle space to explore common ground, let along find a potential way of working together. And yet, work together they can. Both strategies have a place, both have a role, and both deliver value. They key is in understanding what each provides, how they are similar and in what important ways they are different, and how commonalities can be found. If you’re stuck in the middle—or you are wondering what all the fuss is about—you won’t want to miss this webinar.

Cross-disciplinary projects are particularly challenging in that they require everyone to align and support each other to be successful.

If you currently manage cross-disciplinary projects and teams, or you fear that you will in the future, this is a webinar that you won’t want to miss.

On the date of this webinar, it will have been just passed a year since the world went over the cliff-edge of Covid-19, and found our reality ever-changed. Plunged into a disaster that few saw coming (although the threads and warnings were out there), we have struggled to adapt and cope ever since. Employees and whole organizations transitioned from commuting to working at home, virtually overnight. Supply chains were radically overhauled. Our perceptions of “essential workers” were expanded, as was our awareness of the inequities and challenges that many of these workers face. For project managers, how project work has been coordinated and delivered has been significantly transformed. We have had to innovate on the fly, figuring out strategies to plan, coordinate and engage teams that are not just distant, but facing their own challenges. There have been successes and victories, and there have been challenges and roadblocks. This webinar serves as a much needed review of lessons observed, that hopefully we can all learn from.
This webinar explores what is possible to automate, and also tries to help identify the limits of automation. It considers whether there are aspects of project management that will wholly be supported by automation, those instances where it might provide decision support and also those dimensions of the role that are likely to stubbornly resist automation for some time to come.
