January 27, 2023 | 61:06 | Views: 3,516 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.48 / 5

Only 8% who set goals achieve them. By contrast, 67% of projects are achieved. The life goals that get set as a project, get achieved! Tiago Mateus is a professional and certified project manager that spent years developing important skills. However, it was only when he faced the worst period of his life, fighting against lung disease that he came to a crucial realization: the same skills and tools he had been using in his work could also be applied to his private life. They could help him achieve the goals that he desired, starting with improving his health, but also extending to spending more quality time with his family and further advancing his career.

Evolution of leadership styles is a continuous process. Leadership styles are influenced by market forces. Over the last few decades, the world has witnessed numerous leadership styles namely autocratic leadership, bureaucratic leadership, participative leadership, transformational leadership, to name a few. COVID-19 pandemic has posed a new challenge to the world where the employers as well as the employees were severely affected due to business uncertainty. This gave rise to emergence of a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world for which a new style of leadership was required to be evolved for growth and sustenance of businesses. We will discuss how different but successful leadership styles are evolving during the post pandemic era. My deliberations shall examine in particular the usefulness of some people management way of working prescribed in agile values, principles and methodologies.

The Agile Enterprise: Enterprise Agile Metrics Part 2: Bad Metrics, Good Metrics

Agile Metrics are an emergent topic, especially for Agile teams that are ready to progress to a more mature delivery approach or to attempt larger and more complex products and projects. Recently the Project Management Institute (PMI) launched the Agile Metrics Micro-Credential. And the two most popular 'scaled' Agile frameworks, Disciplined Agile and SAFe, started as Lean delivery approaches, splitting Lean from the Lean Six Sigma science that has been very successful in manufacturing. Most Agile ‘metrics’ are relative metrics - very useful for a small team but challenged at the Enterprise and even at the project level. This webinar is based on the presenter’s experience using the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, & Control) framework for Process Improvement for software development projects, with a focus on M (Measure).

The Agile Enterprise: COVID & Lessons Learned

COVID - the word that has impacted our lives at a planetary level over the past couple of years. The changes introduced by the pandemic impacted organizations as a whole and, of course, the way we deliver projects. This webinar is a practitioner's reflections on how COVID accelerated (real) agility, not only by forcing people to think outside of the box but to learn how to adapt to a new 'normal'; work and collaborate remotely; and use technology to support change rather than driving it. From an Agile perspective, COVID forced agility beyond small 'projects' delivered by a team of software developers. COVID also uncovered some shortcomings of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development version of Agile.

The global pandemic has brought projects to center stage, making it clear that we are all project managers, and leaders are all executive sponsors. At work, in our personal lives, and on the news, projects were suddenly everywhere, and we were part of them. Individuals and organizations have learned to come together and collaborate in new ways to develop previously unimagined solutions to unanticipated problems, as demonstrated by the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine-development project. The pandemic has shown the world how project managers can deliver new ideas and change infrastructure and systems at an accelerated pace.

Helping Project Managers Develop Ability in Managing Uncertainties and Ambiguities in Their Projects

by Anna Wiewiora, Peter O'Connor

Project managers are regularly confronted with complex and ambiguous situations in their projects. Ambiguities in projects impact decision making, evoke negative emotions such as stress or anxiety and can have long-term consequences on job satisfaction and burnout. The webinar will present findings from three interrelated studies on managing ambiguities in projects. We will present a catalog of ambiguous situations in projects, including types of ambiguities and specific examples of ambiguities in projects. We will outline and discuss individual, organizational, and situational conditions affecting tolerance of ambiguity, and provide a range of recommendations and strategies for managing ambiguities in projects. Findings from these studies were drawn from the established literature on ambiguities and uncertainties in projects, data from interviews with experienced project managers, and a longitudinal survey with 275 project managers.

The Agile Enterprise: Emotional Intelligence in an Agile World

by Stelian Roman
October 15, 2021 | 59:01 | Views: 12,000 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.48 / 5

Agile, the "new" product development approach started in the 1970s as an alternative to Lean Six Sigma, is now “scaling-up” by reverting to traditional practices like Kanban, Theory of Constraints, Voice of Customer, Kaizen, etc. Another area that is often included in scaled Agile is Emotional Intelligence. Unlike other Agile practices, stand-up, and meeting facilitation, Emotional Intelligence is not something that people can necessarily learn in an empiric way. It is a science, a very specialized domain that can't be easily simplified to the level of knowledge and experience of a specific role. This webinar is a Project Manager's view on how Emotional intelligence can be and is used in practice. It contains examples from the real world of how having Emotional Intelligence knowledge and skills can help to deliver a project.

The Agile Enterprise: Scaled Agile Frameworks - What are They Scaling?

‘Scaled Agile’ is one of the most misunderstood concepts. Agile adoption surveys indicate that Scrum, or some combination of it, is used by 70--80% of Agile Teams. None of the 'scaled' frameworks is mentioned as 'used', only as an option to 'scale'. Agile, a new approach in 1970 to scale down manufacturing processes and make them more ‘Agile,’ was created to improve Lean Six Sigma. Out of Software development, the team frameworks are now 'scaling up' by reverting to Lean Practices like Kanban, Theory of Constraints, Voice of Customer, Kaizen, etc. The Six Sigma component that is the most mature and confirmed way of measuring the impact of process improvement initiatives was left out. This is possibly partly because it requires skills and knowledge that can't be acquired in a 2-3 days course, partly because its practices are associated with manufacturing, and it is as seen incompatible with software development. In addition, Lean goals (eliminate waste, adoption of standardized processes) are completely opposed to the Agile mindset that fundamentally embraces change, allows good waste, and is against reliance on standardized processes, This webinar is an analysis of lessons learned from using Lean Six Sigma to measure process improvement initiatives in software development including a comparison between Agile and Planned approaches in a large system development. It is a project manager's view that is probably different than what is heard in conferences and training courses.
