The Agile Enterprise: Using Risk Management Standards - A Look at the Role of PMI and ISO Standards in Agile

Sep 20, 2019 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Most Agile frameworks developed for small software teams (relative to the size of an organisation) believe that adopting Agile is a Risk Mitigation approach and/or that in Agile risk is reduced compared with the traditional planned approach, wrongly limited to "waterfall" software development. Apart from the fact that there is no empirical or scientific evidence of that, most Agile practitioners can't or won't look at the dual aspect of risk (positive and negative), missing one of the significant benefits of Agile – opportunities management, or in other words, positive risks. Considering Risk Management from the Agile perspective, this webinar is a review of how Risk Management practices and standards can be scaled down and adopted by Agile Teams.

O lume agilă: Impactul aspectelor culturale asupra managementului de proiect

Sep 27, 2019 12:30 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Trăim într-o lume interconectată, unde echipele dispersate geografic sunt mai degrabă o normă decât o excepție, cum era acum 30 de ani. Internetul este un mediu de colaborare fantastic, dar una din lecțiile învățate din boomul outsourcingului și una dintre recomandările Agile este pozitionarea echipelor într-o singură locație. Rolul liderului în Agile, indiferent dacă se numește Scrum Master sau Manager de Proiect, este esențial, iar din motive practice este mai ușor să aducem liderul la echipă decât să aducem întreaga echipă unde este liderul. Managerii de proiect angajați pe durată determinata aduc experiență și cunoștințe care protejează interesul clientului, totodată având beneficii financiare și profesionale atât pentru individ, cât și pentru organizatie. In viata este bine ca "la pomul lăudat să nu te duci cu sacul", beneficiile vin întodeauna cu provocări și lucrul în medii culturale diverse este una dintre ele.

Successful Agile Requires a New Kind of Leadership

by Jeff Dalton

In an agile world, team members are empowered to make important decisions within the context of the behavioral architecture, without having to ask permission from supervisors or managers. But these supervisors and managers are coming from a lifetime of learning how to succeed in a hierarchical world, so they will need to leave behind those ingrained lessons. In order for agile to be successful at scale, leaders will need to change.

Drunken PM

by Dave Prior

Drunken Boxing for Project Managers “The main feature of the drunkard boxing is to hide combative hits in drunkard-like, unsteady movements and actions so as to confuse the opponent. The secret of this style of boxing is maintaining a clear mind while giving a drunken appearance.” Yeah... just like that… but with network diagrams and burndown charts… and a wee bit less vodka.

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.

Topic Teasers Vol. 124: But Agile Won’t Work for Me!

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

Question: With all due respect to my IT co-workers, agile may be the greatest thing since sliced bread for them, but it won’t work for me and my team. We are doing large infrastructure projects for a major city, and we can’t be assembling a small team of five to seven people to chat each morning before we decide what to do that day. But I will admit that we do need some help since few, if any, of our projects finish as planned regarding time. Also, the budgets are just a joke, because I don’t know if we’ve ever completed our work anyplace close to the estimated costs. So, make agile fix that!
