Digital transformation is a phenomenon occurring across sectors and nations, affecting not only technical processes, but also organizational forms and managerial practices. Among them are: (1) project-based organizations (PBOs), common in traditional sectors like the construction industry, and (2) project networks (PNWs), the most favorable form of project organizing in modern service and creative industries. Project management, which is often used as an agent for change, plays a significant role in initiating and implementing digital transformation.

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!
