The Agile Enterprise: What is Agile Project Management?
Agile is still a hot topic. Started in the late 70s as an alternative to Lean Six Sigma, Agile become popular in the second decade of the 21st Century when Scrum became the de facto Agile delivery framework. Like most popular Agile frameworks, Scrum started as a software product development approach used by a small software development team to build new products. Scrum remains at the core of most Agile frameworks with the Scrum Master role being the flag bearer of any Agile Team. Nowadays, many projects have a software development component and a software development (sub) team. From the Project Management perspective, the Scrum framework doesn't handle some important project areas like Financial Management, Procurement, and Risk Management; therefore, a Project Manager is still required.
The term "Agile Project Management" is widely used these days. Although, most of the time, it refers to small software implementation projects. This webinar is a comparative analysis of various aspects of a project from an Agile Perspective, attempting to define what differentiates an "Agile" Project from a standard project. The webinar will also address skills that the Project Manager needs to acquire or develop and practices that must be avoided when using an adaptive delivery approach.
The Agile Enterprise webinar series explores the impact of Agility on Project Management knowledge areas at the Enterprise Level. Attendees will learn how traditional Project Management practices can be adapted to support Agility at the Enterprise level, what the benefits of Agile adoption are, and how the benefits can be quantified.
