    How Will Future Technologies Like Automation & Blockchain Disrupt PPM Workflows? Doug Page, Senior Advisor on Strategy, Portfolio and Project Management, CA Technologies Recorded: May 17 2018 35 mins
    An accessible mobile internet and the app economy changed the way we work over the last decade. Since then we have seen a fast progress in the world of automation, machine learning and data sciences. These new improvements in technology have mobilized companies and organizations to be faster and more efficient. But it has also come at a cost.

    With Blockchain revolutionizing everything from retail operations to finance, we will take a hard look at how a combination of these technologies will change the way the PMO operates. We will look at the potential pros and cons of how fast emerging technologies create disruption and how to get ahead of it.
  • Certain Uncertainty
    Certain Uncertainty Evan Leybourn, Founder and CEO, Business Agility Institute Recorded: May 17 2018 48 mins
    The world is changing more rapidly than ever before and organizations of every size are struggling to remain relevant in the eyes of their customers. The simple fact that the average lifespan of a company has decreased by more than 50 years in the last century demonstrates that not all organizations are prepared for this new reality. It is only high-performing, adaptable and agile organizations that will leverage, lead and thrive in this ambiguous and unpredictable market. We call this business agility.

    The problem with a statement like that is that there is no common definition of what business agility means. And that’s actually a good thing. In a dynamic and changing market trying to lock it down will defeat the very advantage it brings. Instead, I want you to start thinking of business agility as the common thread. An adaptable and sustainable narrative that binds & guides, rather than directs, us into the uncertain future.
    This session will cover the state of business agility around the world. We’ll look at the Domains of Business Agility, interspersed with case studies from 4 multinational organizations in both the banking and utilities sector.
    In this session you will learn:
    • Domains of business agility
    • How to work with Finance and HR to increase agility in your current organization
    • How Business Agility is being adopted by organizations around the world
  • Fostering Innovation with Lean Startup and SAFe
    Fostering Innovation with Lean Startup and SAFe Dean Leffingwell, Cofounder and Chief Methodologist, Scaled Agile, Inc. Recorded: May 17 2018 46 mins
    The marketplace is changing so quickly that we need a paradigm shift in how we enable innovation in the large enterprise. When an innovation culture is relegated exclusively to the startup, our biggest brands—those who employ most of the people and drive most of the world's economy—are at risk for their very survival. And yet, sometimes it seems that the larger and more successful the company, the more difficult it is to innovate. 
Fortunately, Lean and Agile development gives us many of the tools we need to apply that momentum to new innovations, and to do so at enterprise scale. And now, the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) and other industry trends bring new mindsets and thinking to bear on this challenge.

    In this session, Dean Leffingwell will illustrate how seemingly disparate practices—like Agile, scaled Agile, Lean Startup, Lean UX, DevOps, and Continuous Delivery—need not be separate initiatives, but rather a continuum that helps enterprises delivery more innovative solutions at a velocity they could only imagine before. From Minimum Viable Product to Minimum Marketable Feature, to the-smallest-package-that-can-be efficiently-released-into-production, Dean will discuss how reducing batch size enables fast feedback, and is the one elemental practice that binds them all.
