by Kimberly Johnson, Christopher Miller, Jennifer Arnold

Necessity is the Mother of Invention. But research shows us that creativity emerges from time to think, backing off, having some slack in the system. In 1999 Coleman was on the ropes. The business had been sold and then sold again. Everyone who could leave had left. Imagine that you return to take over as President to see what you can do to salvage the situation …and then Walmart calls asking to see the plan.

How can you structure your large, in-house software developers to make agility flourish? Traditionally, software development is organized into short-term project teams that draw from a pool of specialized talent. Developers often work on multiple projects simultaneously. The problem? Project delays often create lags that ripple across multiple teams, creating inefficiencies and frustration. Moreover, jumping from project to project forces our brains to switch gears, meaning we work harder to function at a lower level.

Systematic Innovation in Complex Environments

As the world becomes more inter-connected, it becomes inherently more complex and more prone to tipping into chaos. This phenomenon is not helped by the fact that most individuals do not understand the differences between how complex systems work. A lot of our assumptions are plain wrong when it comes to complexity – we look for root causes when there are none; we adopt command-and-control management strategies when self-organisation is the only viable method; and we fail to recognise that whenever discontinuous change happens, things will get worse before they get better. This webinar offers a crash-course in complex systems theory and provides real-world examples of how enterprises that embrace the complexity are progressively displacing traditional organisations.

By 2025, regardless of industry or sector, senior leaders and managers will spend at least 60% of their time selecting, prioritizing, and driving the execution of projects. In fact, soon "we will all become project leaders, but many of us are not prepared for this shift.” According to recent research, the number of individuals working in project-based roles will increase from 66 million (in 2017) to 88 million (forecast 2027). And the value of project-oriented economic activity worldwide will grow from $12 trillion (in 2013) to $20 trillion (forecast 2027). Those are millions of projects requiring millions of project leaders per year. In this landscape the percentage of work activities performed as part of projects is markedly increasing as projects are becoming the essential model to deliver change and create value around the world. The so-called gig economy is also driven by projects.

Visual Control Board for a Strategic PMO

PMOs are an integral part an organization’s strategic plan for implementing improvement, keeping the business running, and directing change. The PMO has a wide range of responsibilities with a diverse set of stakeholders and an ever increasing demand for status. Thus, many PMOs are transforming into “Strategic PMOs” and assumed the role of defining the, and reporting the status of, the clear line of sight from Strategic Intent to Project Outcomes.

Beyond the Triangle: Delivering Value in an Agile World

by Blaize Reich
January 28, 2019 | 60:46 | Views: 6,812 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.52 / 5

In this seminar, Dr. Reich will first discuss two practices which can position a project to deliver value: Design Thinking and Benefits Mapping. Then she will review findings from a large scale study done to compare predictive and agile methodologies. An unexpected and interesting finding is that combining predictive and agile practices into a hybrid approach can produce good outcomes.

A GEMBA Walk with Santa and The Elves

by David Davis, Rosemary Hossenlopp
December 12, 2018 | 63:14 | Views: 2,472 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.26 / 5

One of the reasons Santa Claus is so productive in toy making is because he spends a lot of time in the workshop with the elves listening to their challenges and success. This concept of “going out to the field” is rooted in LEAN and Six Sigma philosophy and captures the value of a leader’s presence in the field, observation of the work where it is being done, and the teaming of people and process in the spirit of Kaizen.

Business Analysis 2018: The Impact of Agile/Scrum On Business Analysis

by Mike Frenette

Business Analysts, or those performing this role, have created Business Requirements Documents (BRDs) for many years. This was often done in the early stages of a project, documenting very detailed requirements that were often considered “frozen” because of the complexities and effort to produce them. The Agile world has turned the role of the business analyst upside down.
