We will focus on a combination of tools to support the project, activities to identify success factors, and overall Mindset required to make a Change Management Successful. While most of the technical components are the same, where Agile or Predictive, the purpose and objective may different. We will look at components of the roadmap from current state to future state and discuss excellence in results.

Agile Metrics are an emergent topic, especially for Agile teams that are ready to progress to a more mature delivery approach or to attempt larger and more complex products and projects. Recently the Project Management Institute (PMI) launched the Agile Metrics Micro-Credential. And the two most popular 'scaled' Agile frameworks, Disciplined Agile and SAFe, started as Lean delivery approaches, splitting Lean from the Lean Six Sigma science that has been very successful in manufacturing. Most Agile ‘metrics’ are relative metrics - very useful for a small team but challenged at the Enterprise and even at the project level. This webinar is based on the presenter’s experience using the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, & Control) framework for Process Improvement for software development projects, with a focus on M (Measure).
This webinar will cover both waterfall and Agile approaches to being trapped on what appears to be an island with other people and no supplies or other means of support.

Organizations lead successful digital transformations when leaders are self-aware and they understand the needs and drives of their people that work for them, have a flexible method to quickly staff teams, and align diverse professionals to a common goal; they can boost the effectiveness of all contributors: manufacturing, operations management, engineering, software developers, IT specialists, and more.
Agile remains a hot topic! Started in manufacturing in the 1970s as a better product delivery option than the 'perfect' Six Sigma, Agile became popular in the 21st Century when the success of small software teams using the Manifesto for Agile Software Development values and principles attracted the attention of other parts of the business. Nowadays, many projects have a software development component and a software development (sub) team. From the Project Management perspective, the Story Points, introduced by Extreme Programming (XP) and now used by some Scrum teams, can be harmful to the team and even to Agility. The term "Scrum Project Management" is widely used these days; although, most of the time, this refers to application maintenance and support. This webinar is an analysis of the pros and cons of using Story Points in projects and an exploration of some options that can replace Story Points.
