Agile is perceived as a better way of delivering projects, products, and services. Unlike the traditional approach of measuring the value delivered based on the planned deliverables, the budget spent, and meeting the critical milestones, Agile doesn't provide clear metrics that can be used to compare projects and delivery teams. Agile is a new approach, and traditional project benchmarking may not be relevant.

Agile Project Management requires some additional skills to be possessed by an Agile Project Manager.

With the proliferation of cloud-based self-service platforms, it is becoming increasingly commonplace for business to break free from the shackles that bound them to Information Technology (IT) strategy forever. While strategy is never a bad thing, it can be the slow-moving tanker that takes forever to change course, and in the age of agility, most companies have not aligned their strategy with agile principles, even less so IT. Shadow IT, as it is known, has many advantage. But it also creates many challenges.

The Agile Enterprise: How Can Agile Processes Be Improved?

Agile is a continuous improvement process in itself, but at the enterprise level, most of the Agile frameworks can’t be used for process improvement because the business area has very limited room for agility due to strong governance requirements or because of the culture and strong resistance to change. Process Improvement is a very well defined discipline that has tools and metrics that can easily be used to measure the benefits delivered by transition to Agile. This webinar presents some options for improving processes that have an Agile component but are not entirely Agile.

The Agile Enterprise: The need for new roles and a new organization structure

The Agile Enterprise is a new type of organization. A collaboration-based environment where some of the ‘command and control’ roles are not only obsolete but also can be a roadblock for the Agile transformation. The natural fear of change combined with protecting privileges or the job itself resulted in labelling as ‘Agile’ roles that are not only not defined in any Agile framework but are also the core components of the “waterfall” approach.

Are you facing increased competition, shortened product life cycles, and rapidly changing customer needs and interests? Welcome to the new reality. In order for teams and organizations to succeed within this new reality, it requires that their leaders and employees become more agile. But, agility is not something organizations can incentivize for coerce. Agility must be unleashed and empowered. This is easier said than done.

The Agile Enterprise: The Role of the PMO in Agile Transformations

April 05, 2019 | 56:20 | Views: 4,332 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.31 / 5

Scaling Agile practices beyond software development teams and IT departments is a growing trend, and the Agile Enterprise is a reality rather than a goal. However, the transition from planned approach to Agile is a painful change, and PMO can provide support for Agile rather than be perceived as an archaic team supporting “waterfall”. Once the organisation decides to adopt Agile, the PMO should be the champion of the transformation process, providing support to the Project Managers with less experience with Agile delivery while ensuring that governance requirements are met. This webinar is a summary of the presenter’s experience in organisations transitioning to Agile.

While the number of project management frameworks (COBIT, PMBOK, PRINCE2, SCRUM, SAFe) continues to increase, the number of approaches to project management used by organizations and practitioners appear to be decreasing. Although other useful approaches to managing projects surely exist, many publications now promote the use of two (2) primary approaches - Predictive and Agile.

The concept of the Agile Project Manager is almost universally accepted, at least in IT projects; although there is no Agile Project Management Methodology. Traditional approaches like PMBoK and PRINCE2 had always the capability to use techniques that are part of the Agile delivery: incremental and iterative development, early delivery of increments of the project, multi-functional teams, inspect and adapt, etc.
