The Agile Enterprise: Impact of Digital Transformations on Organizational Agility

Jul 10, 2020 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Nowadays, digital transformation is a hot topic. Every organisation has their own initiative to introduce new tools aimed mainly at enhancing mobility and collaboration. However, the concept of digital transformation is not new; it has been done several times before, most notably with the adoption of the Personal Computer and the .com revolution. Digital or not, transformation means disruptive change and challenges to organisational culture. Agility, rather than being the driver, should support digital transformations by contributing to the mindset changes, adding flexibility to processes, and last but not least supporting empirical learning.

by Raju Rao
June 03, 2020 | 64:52 | Views: 3,655 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.15 / 5

VUCA , an acronym that stands for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity, has become a buzzword in management and business circles. It has added a new dimension to management principles and practice this requires a fresh approach to adapt to the new situations that are emerging in business and industry. Over the years project management standards have been adapting to industry practices and through its revisions introducing new topics and areas of knowledge. The objective of the standards has been to present information that is relevant and valid for today's operations. Various project management standards have been studied to assess if the four parameters of VUCA have been included and discussed and if they are adequate for the practising project manager to function effectively.

There is an increasing recognition that embracing Agile (either adopting several Agile practices or going through a complex Agile transformation) becomes mandatory in these times of a rapidly changing market place. An Enterprise Agile Transformation is, however, a deep organizational change for which “copy & paste” does not work. This presentation explains why there is no one single recipe for Agile transformation and illustrates through real life examples the crucial role that culture plays in any such an endeavor.

Requirements in Agile

white paper
by Joy Beatty Candase Hokanson

When companies move to an agile Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), they often remove the processes and analysis of their waterfall SDLC because, as the Agile Manifesto puts it, “They value individual and interactions over processes and tools.” Some of the rigor should be removed – waterfall processes can get bogged down with gates and sign-offs. However, caution must be exercised to not go too far against processes and analysis and rely just upon backlogs and user stories. Requirements and the analysis that leads to those requirements are just as essential in an agile project as they are in a waterfall project. The difference lies in how much requirements analysis is completed and the timing of it.

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Isn’t it enough that they also want us to work with a second team to produce the tangible portions of this project, while we do the software and other soft deliverables? Can I refuse to accept this person into the group?
