June 11, 2020 | 60:16 | Views: 4,609 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.39 / 5

The process of project management is the process of making decisions. Much of our thinking about how to make decisions reflect an ideal generally called rational economic actor. In an ideal world, you weigh the alternatives based on reliable data, compute the most advantageous path and decide to choose that course. We maximize the expected economic outcome given some set of constraints. Ideally, we do this in a timely manner using a process that is transparent and inspectable. Everyone involved can understands why that particular decision was made. In the messy real world, we down-select the alternatives to consider. We work with limited data, fuzzy or even inaccurate data and, frequently, decide to take the path of least resistance. Getting to better decisions requires some planning well before the decision is to be taken. Increasingly we acknowledge the role our inherent biases play in our decisions. The insights of behavioral economics allow us, up front, to design decision making strategies and processes which limit the role of our cognitive biases. No process will immunize us against all failures but knowing what to look out for increases our success rate. During this talk we will examine how to increase the chances that our decisions will actually advance our project’s objectives without being stick in analysis paralysis. We will discuss how to make your decision making more aligned with your goals and make those decisions quicker and more reality based.

Per the Agile Business Consortium, business agility allows businesses to adapt quickly to market changes; respond rapidly and flexibly to customer demands; adapt and lead change in a productive and cost-effective way without compromising quality; and continuously be at a competitive advantage. The primary reason for moving to Agile is to achieve faster business value and keep you ahead of the competition. Agile is built for change - fundamentally, it is about creating Business Agility. It enables the enterprise to deliver projects more efficiently, with relentless focus on business value and providing the highest return on investment. Whether it is a software project, a new service offering or a new product, Agile’s twelve principles and three pillars (transparency, inspection, adaptation) are designed to reduce money spent on undesirable or unusable features which were built based on outdated requirements.

Software development projects have undergone remarkable changes with the arrival of agile development approaches. Although intended for small, self-managing teams, these approaches are today used for large development programs. A major challenge of such programs is coordinating many teams. This case study describes the coordination of knowledge work in a large-scale agile development program with 12 teams. The findings highlight coordination modes based on feedback, the use of a number of mechanisms, and how coordination practices change over time. The findings can improve the outcomes of large knowledge-based development programs by tailoring coordination practices to needs over time.

A Deep Dive Into Y2K – A PM Perspective

by Peter de Jager
October 21, 2019 | 61:14 | Views: 5,902 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.58 / 5

We stand on the verge of the 20th anniversary of a curious date: one where, for many reasons, the world didn't end. Y2K was a global project of immense proportions, as organizations literally raced against the clock to prevent their information systems from failing as the rest of the world celebrated the dawn of the new millennium. For the most part, they kept going. This webinar takes a retrospective view of the Y2K project, one of the largest coordinated systems efforts that the world has yet seen; it offers an alternative perspective and far more insight into the management underpinnings of how to manage an effort that was complex, diffuse and world-wide. Join Peter de Jager for a look back at a global incident that monopolized the activities of nearly all IT departments through the 1990s. He'll explore what we've learned, what we still have to figure out, and what we are perilously close to once again forgetting.
