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.

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.

For the past 15 years, the Scrum Master and Project Manager roles have coexisted well, especially in IT projects. From the very technical role that was part of the Software Development Team, the Scrum Master evolved into a new organizational role sometimes with a well-defined job description and with responsibilities that transcended the technical background from which it originated. Although the role was defined in the Scrum framework, the Scrum Master role is now present in other frameworks

Agility continues to be a highly discussed subject. The success of using Agile approaches, mainly Scrum or similar frameworks, has organisations and managers thinking of replicating its success at the department level and even at the organisation level. This webinar looks at Agility at the Enterprise level from a Project Manager perspective, explaining the difference between the new Agile Enterprise (a top down Agile approach) and Enterprise Agile (the bottom up Agile transformation) that is scaling popular Agile frameworks from team level to organisation level.

Have you or your Agile teams had trouble refining requirements on an Agile project? Are your teams struggling with user stories and tasks that are too large for them to handle well? If so, you and your teams need more guidance to implement backlog / user story grooming. Backlog grooming is a step-by-step process of taking high-level (“coarse-grained”) requirements and refining them to lower-level user stories and tasks (“fine-level”) that are ready to put into a sprint. In RefineM’s Backlog/Story Grooming presentation, attendees will learn how to work the process to achieve fine-grained requirements that are ready just in time. The key to success is leveraging tools and techniques as well as the expertise of your team to refine requirements iteratively.
