Did you know that the United States Air Force invented the title “project manager”? In fact, much of the early development of project management was on projects performed for the government. This webinar will discuss project management by the government rather than for the government. If you work in government, or want to know more about project management in government, this is the webinar for you. We shall consider projects in the context of public organizations, how the nature of government affects projects, how the public agency perspective on projects differs from that of the private sector, and challenges faced in the public sector. This an introduction, with more in-depth discussion to follow in future webinars.

Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is considered by some as the most suitable option to scale Agile from a software development team to a large program of work. Although presented as an Agile framework, SAFe includes many practices from Lean and ITIL, and it is considered by some agilists as too formal to be Agile: a re-branded 'waterfall'. This webinar is an analysis of SAFe from a project, program, and portfolio delivery point of view. The webinar looks at the SAFe practices used before the publication of the Manifesto for Agile software development (Agile Manifesto), especially the Lean ones. The presenter will provide recommendations on how SAFe can be used in projects that are not software development related, in combination with the PMBOK® Guide, to provide Agility for 'near perfect' product development processes.

Disciplined Agile Delivery is the 'new' Agile framework adopted by PMI. Although currently not as popular as Scaled Scrum, Disciplined Agile can be seen a competitor to Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), another framework presenting itself as an evolution of Agile/Scrum to the Enterprise Level. This webinar is an analysis of Disciplined Agile from a Project Manager's point of view - how Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) can be used to deliver projects, not necessarily software development projects. The framework is analyzed from the Agile Enterprise perspective looking at how DAD combines 'old' practices, like Lean, with Agile Manifesto values and principles. The webinar also explores how the PMBOK® Guide can augment DAD to become an Enterprise level, industry agnostic Agile delivery option.

Project managers need to balance people, teams, process, product, and a host of other things. The people/team part of the equation (especially the team part) often falls through the cracks - it’s harder to quantify, and the guideposts are few and far between. Getting a team working well together can be like herding cats - just when you think you’ve got them all going the same direction, another one wanders off. Social intelligence (a kind of sideways look at emotional intelligence) can help us herd those cats effectively, keeping the project as well as the team together. It gives us some clues to understanding and managing the connections between people, most particularly those we work with on a regular basis.

Change resistance is usually accepted as normal, but this begs two questions - who gets to define “resistance,” and what causes it? This webinar examines the normal reasons behind resistance and then goes deeper into the interaction between the change team and those impacted by the change to find the real reasons for resistance.
Further, change resistance is often used by the change team as an excuse for their mistakes in determining what needs to change (and what needs protection from change) or how they choose to involve others in the process (including what they can learn from what appears as resistance).
