What’s In Between? Hybrid Agile Processes for Product Development

Aug 25, 2022 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Over the past few years, many organizations that manufacture tangible products have attempted Agile approaches for new product development. Unfortunately, many of these processes fail to deliver the expected results in speed-to-market and flexibility. Yet, returning to a full waterfall process remains bureaucratic and intractable with remote and virtual teams. The solution is a hybrid agile-waterfall process. In this session, we will identify various processes and systems for new product development (NPD). You will learn about two approaches to hybrid product development that can enhance the culture of innovation in your organization. We will provide examples of companies that adopted different processes to add flexibility while minimizing risk. Comparing and contrasting a non-profit using WAGILE Product Development and a manufacturer using Lean NPD, you will understand how culture and risk tolerance impact the choice of an effective product development process.

Jul 28, 2022 4:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Although they may appear to be competitors, Agile and Lean Six Sigma have the same objective: supporting the organization’s priorities by achieving customer satisfaction. Lean Six Sigma has a very mature approach to process improvement: DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control). This approach can certainly be used for a successful Agile transformation. The webinar is based on the author's experience using the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC framework for Process Improvement for software development projects with a focus on M (Measure).   

The Rise of the Chief Project Officer in the C-Suite, And What You Need To Do To Become One

Jul 21, 2022 10:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

With the significant increase in automation of operations and the increase in change initiatives and project work, a new role is emerging in the executive committee. Companies are beginning to consolidate responsibility for orchestrating and successfully implementing the organization’s continuous transformation and significant strategic initiatives within a single C-level executive. And it’s not only multinationals and for-profit organizations. The chief project officer goes far beyond the traditional Project Management Officer role or the direct sponsorship of individual projects. They must push their organization toward adopting a project-driven structure and foster a collaborative and empowering culture that reaches across silos. They must also collaborate with HR to develop project-management competencies throughout the organization. The role should be fully integrated into the C-suite. Just as COOs have in the past, CPOs should behave like an extension of the CEO or even the board and, as such, hold the top managers accountable. CPOs may not be common yet in the C-Suite, but their steady emergence is a leading indicator of how companies will organize themselves to thrive in the project economy.

Being Agile, Not Scrum or XP

Jul 13, 2022 2:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

In a bid to embrace agile trends, organizations are rushing to implement agile practices rather than adopting an agile mindset. In this interactive session, Dr. Helen Uzamere will elucidate the difference between "Being Agile" and implementing agile practices, such as Scrum, XP, Kanban and demonstrate why an agile mindset, not practices, drives successful projects.

Making the Project Charter Success Focused

Jul 11, 2022 2:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

A lean, concise, and easy to read charter allows the team to focus on delivering within the success criteria. This presentation discusses this new paradigm and impact to organizations as well as the roll of charters in funding capacity, EPICS and charters, and integrated work teams. Can we deliver value faster if we adopt new business rules regarding the project faster? The purpose of the charter is to authorize the project manager to start delivering on the project. It is not to cut and paste from all over to make an all-inclusive summary of all business intelligence that justified the project. I propose to make it a lean document focused on the outcomes and capabilities and the definition of success. Items that have a workflow/life cycle (risks, assumptions, issues, etc.) do not need to be in a charter, they are taken care of elsewhere.
