The debate over Waterfall and Agile is the wrong debate. Is project management ready for the Tsunami?
In a world where things progress at a rate that is faster than previous years, many people are becoming inclined towards Agile in their day-to-day, and they are leaving the Waterfall method behind. However, agile is fundamentally a revised version of waterfall that focuses more on projects where the dynamics are changing and the time required to market is less. The drawbacks of the waterfall method have been rectified to overcome the challenges faced while using this particular method during project execution - specifically for industries where there is more chaos and the requirements are unclear or changing. This webinar will address the similarities and differences of the Waterfall and Agile methods.
This talk will explore the concept and technique of WBS in applying it dynamically and how it can work when organizations have to be agile and are constantly changing with regard to strategy.
The PM community has great models for how projects should work, and a wealth of good advice on how to make basically sound programs and portfolio management more effective. Unfortunately the business of selling PM effort is often in conflict with the profession of delivering PM services. We see this in the form of impossible deadlines, unrealistic promises, and estimates based on client budget rather than true cost of execution. In this session we’ll explain why this enormous problem continues to exist, show you how to assess the resulting risk on your own project / program / portfolio effort, and share proven strategies you can apply to minimize the impact. Every PM, regardless of experience or skill level, will benefit from this session.

Elisa Mansur, Boyan Slat, Gretta Thunderberg have launched some of the most impactful projects in the past decade; learn what is their secret. In this presentation, I will share some of the most amazing projects launched by kids and young professionals and explain what we can learn from them to become better project leaders. For example, we will look at 27-year-old Brazilian entrepreneur Elisa Mansur, whose start-up won the 2018 World Bank Youth Summit project competition. Recognizing the chronic shortage of nursery care in her home country that sees around two million infants and toddlers denied access to this critical start in their lives, Elisa, set up a network to provide community mothers with training, organization, daily schedules, and a rating system. In doing so, she established a process for improving early childhood education and created a brand new Brazilian job-market. And how about the impressive and ambitious project of 16-year-old Dutch Boyan Slat to clean up the ocean. The idea was born after his first scuba dive off the coast of Greece in 2010, were he saw more plastic than fishes. In 2013, he launched The Ocean Cleanup project, with just €300 in seed money, with the goal of removing 90 percent of marine plastic pollution by 2040.
