Re-scheduled: The Agile Enterprise: From Agile Teams to Agile Organization

Feb 1, 2019 9:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Agility continues to be a highly discussed subject. The success of using Agile approaches, mainly Scrum or similar frameworks, has organisations and managers thinking of replicating its success at the department level and even at the organisation level. In addition to popular frameworks and practices associated with Agile there are new roles (Agile Coach, Scrum Master) or traditional roles that were re-branded Agile (Agile Project Manager, Agile Business Analyst, Agile Tester, etc.) that should support the transition to a new kind of organisation, called "Agile Enterprise". This webinar looks at Agility at the Enterprise level from a Project Manager perspective, explaining the difference between the new Agile Enterprise (a top down Agile approach) and Enterprise Agile (the bottom up Agile transformation) that is scaling popular Agile frameworks from team level to organisation level.

Backlog / Story Grooming

by NK Shrivastava, Phillip George
January 09, 2019 | 61:12 | Views: 973 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.49 / 5

Have you or your Agile teams had trouble refining requirements on an Agile project? Are your teams struggling with user stories and tasks that are too large for them to handle well? If so, you and your teams need more guidance to implement backlog / user story grooming. Backlog grooming is a step-by-step process of taking high-level (“coarse-grained”) requirements and refining them to lower-level user stories and tasks (“fine-level”) that are ready to put into a sprint. In RefineM’s Backlog/Story Grooming presentation, attendees will learn how to work the process to achieve fine-grained requirements that are ready just in time. The key to success is leveraging tools and techniques as well as the expertise of your team to refine requirements iteratively.

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. 115: Project QuickPlan

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

Question: Maybe I’m a project manager, or maybe a ScrumMaster? All I know is that my organization is using a form of agile, and I think implementing the most important parts of it. But we don’t quite have the entire “team meeting with the product owner and the other high-level stakeholders” perfected yet. For the necessary communication, I do get to sit with them and ask questions, which is good. However, without my familiar processes and paperwork for traditional projects, I don’t quite know what to ask or how to get the proper sign-offs. How can I make sure I’m taking the proper information back to my team?

Agility in Project Management

by Susan Irwin, PhD, MBA, PMI-ACP, PMI-SP, PMP, PfMP

Project managers need leadership skills—specifically emotional intelligence (EI)—to augment technical expertise. But agile thinking, leadership and EI skills are just one facet of project success. Businesses need to invest in project management processes that are agile to respond to the changing needs of the organization.

"Nearly every great advance in science arises from a crisis in the old theory, through an endeavor to find a way out of the difficulties created. We must examine old ideas, old theories, although they belong to the past, for this is the only way to understand the importance of the new ones and the extent of their validity."
