The Agile Enterprise: Benchmarking Projects - Measuring Project Outcome not the Output

Jul 11, 2019 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

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. In the absence of standards and guidance from a community of practice, Agile teams use qualitative or semi-quantitative metrics to visualize progress. Metrics like velocity, burn-down charts, and defects escaped are pretty common at the team level, but many teams fail to use them beyond the team to compare themselves with other teams or to the industry. One reason is that most metrics are very subjective and easy to be gamed. This webinar presents a user-centric model, measuring the project from the customer perspective rather than old concepts that require technical expertise to size the project.

The Agile Enterprise: Certifications - Are They Necessary?

Dec 2, 2021 4:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

There are hundreds of different Agile Certifications from competing organizations. Even the authors of the Scrum Framework decided to have separate certifications, and later to create various levels. Due to its popularity, the Scrum Master role transcended the Scrum Framework and is now included in many other frameworks - even when those frameworks don't include a Scrum team. This webinar is a cost/benefit analysis of how Agile Certifications can help project delivery, offering examples of when a certification helps and what a Project Manager should look for when choosing a certification.

The Agile Enterprise: Change Management in an Agile World

Jun 25, 2021 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

For some agile teams, especially software development teams, the term "Change Management" is associated with the ITIL style Change Control, an engineering process created to manage risks associated with production deployment. Despite the optimistic view presented by most agile frameworks, Organization Change Management is hard. The transition to agile is often harder than any other transformation because it requires a mindset change at all levels, supported by a huge shift in the organizational culture. This webinar is a practice-based presentation on the importance of Organization Change Management in Agile Transformations and the critical role that the Project Manager must play.

The Agile Enterprise: Coaching in an Agile World

Nov 4, 2021 4:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Coaching was not necessarily a role and practice that existed when Agile started as a new approach in the 1970s. Agile began as an alternative to Lean Six Sigma which is the very mindset that is coming back to Agile as a way to 'scale' frameworks developed for small teams of software developers. Like some other practices that originated in Extreme Programming (XP), Story Points and burndown charts, the Coach role evolved to something that is hard to define. From an advisor to Senior Management, to a Trainer, or a salesman for various Agile certifications, the Agile Coach is almost always specific to software development. Agile Manufacturing and Lean Six Sigma, which may be considered much larger Business Transformations, don't necessarily have a Coach for each unit of the organization. This webinar is a Project Manager's analysis of the Agile Coach, Business Coach, and Lean Six Sigma's Master Black Belt roles.

The Agile Enterprise: Combining Disciplined Agile Delivery with the PMBOK® Guide

May 8, 2020 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Disciplined Agile Delivery is the 'new' Agile framework adopted by PMI. Although currently not as popular as Scaled Scrum, Disciplined Agile can be seen a competitor to Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), another framework presenting itself as an evolution of Agile/Scrum to the Enterprise Level. This webinar is an analysis of Disciplined Agile from a Project Manager's point of view - how Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) can be used to deliver projects, not necessarily software development projects. The framework is analyzed from the Agile Enterprise perspective looking at how DAD combines 'old' practices, like Lean, with Agile Manifesto values and principles. The webinar also explores how the PMBOK® Guide can augment DAD to become an Enterprise level, industry agnostic Agile delivery option.

The Agile Enterprise: COVID & Lessons Learned

Jan 20, 2022 4:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

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 Agile Enterprise: Emotional Intelligence in an Agile World

Oct 15, 2021 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

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: Enterprise Agile Metrics Part 1: Story Points - why not?

Feb 3, 2022 4:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Agile remains a hot topic! Started in manufacturing in the 1970s as a better product delivery option than the 'perfect' Six Sigma, Agile became popular in the 21st Century when the success of small software teams using the Manifesto for Agile Software Development values and principles attracted the attention of other parts of the business. Nowadays, many projects have a software development component and a software development (sub) team. From the Project Management perspective, the Story Points, introduced by Extreme Programming (XP) and now used by some Scrum teams, can be harmful to the team and even to Agility. The term "Scrum Project Management" is widely used these days; although, most of the time, this refers to application maintenance and support. This webinar is an analysis of the pros and cons of using Story Points in projects and an exploration of some options that can replace Story Points.

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

Feb 17, 2022 4:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

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: Enterprise Agile Metrics Part 3: Measuring Outcomes

Mar 3, 2022 4:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

As agile delivery reaches its peak, Agile Metrics is still an emergent topic. Most Agile teams with 4-5 years of practice who are ready to progress to a more mature delivery approach and/or attempt larger and more complex products and projects find that the metrics used by the team in their journey to agility are often challenged at the project level and beyond. This webinar is based on the author's experience using the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC framework for Process Improvement for software development projects with a focus on M (Measure).
