Agile found its way into project delivery with many certifications trying to define various Agile project roles. Most Agile frameworks, such as Scrum, Crystal, and XP, were conceived by developers for a small team of software developers, and the Project Manager role is usually omitted. Unlike some specialized Agile Project Manager certifications, PMI's Project Management Professional (PMP)® remains the benchmark for the Project Manager role with an increased focus on Agile and Hybrid practices but without compromising the predictive knowledge required to manage projects that can't or won't use Agile practices. This webinar is a comparative analysis of the Scrum Master, seen in some organizations as a replacement of the Project Manager role; various flavors of the ‘Certified Agile Project Manager’; and the standard Project Manager role.

Workplace change has never been at a higher rate or faster pace than now. PMOs, leaders and their teams grapple with multiple disruptions, from mergers and acquisitions to restructuring, pandemics, and digital transformations. In today’s dynamic environment, being successful in change is not about being perfect; it’s about being fast and effective so you can move on to the next task or issue—the speed of execution matters. Adopting one 80/20 action to address common project challenges is the best strategy. It gives you 80 percent of the results in 20 percent of the time. In this upbeat and interactive session, we will discuss how you can apply the 80/20 rule to focus in on one action to navigate the tasks and common situations that Project Managers typically encounter during a transformation project.

By applying the Pareto Principle, also known as the 80/20 rule, Project Managers can significantly reduce cyber risk that threatens to derail project success.

Agile planning is widely different from Waterfall planning based on Gantt charts. There are many factors to consider when developing an Agile plan to make sure it increases successful project delivery. How can you use these steps to proactively approach Agile planning? In this webinar, attendees will learn the components of an Agile plan and how to create one. They will learn about the “onion” model of Agile planning and consider each step in the planning process, particularly product planning and release planning. They will leave with the knowledge necessary to construct their own Agile plans.
Change and conflict go hand-in-hand. We need to understand and embrace how change can create conflict and how, as leaders, we need to address and manage that conflict. This webinar will provide you with ideas that will help you embrace the positive conflict that drives change and build your willingness to engage and manage conflict. The webinar touches the following concepts: the change process, pain vs. gain, change threshold, the change curve and strategies for managing conflict.
In the next five years, the world will see more projects than ever. The reconstruction of the economy, healthcare, social care, and society at large after the devastating global pandemic crisis, will be unprecedented in human history. According to McKinsey, Governments’ have announced $10 trillion in reconstruction funds just in the first two months of the crisis, which is three times more than the response to the 2008–09 financial crisis. These are millions of projects, which will need millions of project managers. However, despite this positive outlook, significant trends will put at stake the project management profession that we have learned to know in the past 40 years. We should consider these signals as an urgent call for profound change in our practices and a much needed in our competencies. A small price to pay compared to the unique opportunity that the project management profession has to lead what I call our new world driven by change.
