  • Project Finances Made Easy
    Project Finances Made Easy Rick Morris, R2 Consulting and Alf Abuhajleh, CA Technologies Recorded: Sep 25 2018 42 mins
    Finance managers are rarely included in project planning, and if they are involved in the project tracking it is usually in a passive way. At the same time, all stakeholders expect to have the latest project financial situation available on demand and customized for their personal use. And if that weren’t enough, there’s often no integration between project and financial management systems. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

    Join agile project management expert Rick Morris of R2 Consulting for an overview of how financial managers can take charge of project finances and use their expertise to add new value to the organization.
  • Energy Intensive Industries: Levy Exemptions and Brexit Impacts
    Energy Intensive Industries: Levy Exemptions and Brexit Impacts Arjan Geveke (BEIS), Chris Dye (NSG Pilkington), Jamie Tabord (Inspired Energy) Recorded: Sep 17 2018 45 mins
    Government recognises that the increase in delivered electricity prices caused through the recovery of environmental levies on industrial energy consumers’ bills threatens to reduce the competitiveness of UK businesses in international markets.

    This particularly impacts our most energy intensive industries.

    To address this, a new exemption scheme from April 2018 provides relief to industries whose global competitiveness is most at risk. Eligible businesses may apply for a partial exemption from the costs of funding the Contracts for Difference and Renewables Obligation. Successful applicants are also, automatically, eligible for relief from Feed-In-Tariff costs.

    But does this go far enough?

    Government has recently consulted on widening the scheme - how do we strike the balance between supporting British industry and avoiding a heavy financial burden on those who are not eligible for the exemptions?

    And how does this tie into policy making for Brexit, British exports and the wider Industrial Strategy?

    Join our webinar to hear directly from Arjan Geveke, the Associate Director of Energy Policy (Productivity Team) at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy as he outlines government's understanding of what industrial energy consumers need and how the policymakers plan to support these sectors.

    With response from NSG Pilkington - a major glass manufacturer affected by these issues and insight on market trends and consumer activity from Inspired Energy, this promises to be a lively and highly informative discussion.

  • Optimizing Leadership Training and Development by Leveraging Learning Science
    Optimizing Leadership Training and Development by Leveraging Learning Science Todd Maddox, Ph.D. Recorded: Sep 6 2018 40 mins
    By attending this talk, you can bring back to your organization a better understanding of how psychology and brain science can be leveraged to provide a roadmap for successfully training leaders and managers at all levels. In this era of digital transformation, where organizations rely increasingly on cross-functional and deeply collaborative teams, leadership is becoming more distributed and employees are taking on leadership roles much earlier in their careers. Combine this with some of the recent corporate crises (#metoo, unconscious bias, discrimination) and effective leadership training becomes even more important. The overriding aim of this talk is to examine leadership training and development from a learning science perspective—the marriage of psychology and brain science—and to identify procedures that optimize leadership training.

  • 3 Challenges of Distributed Agile Retrospectives & How to Solve Them
    3 Challenges of Distributed Agile Retrospectives & How to Solve Them Michael Ball-Marian, Agile Expert at CA Technologies Recorded: Jul 19 2018 58 mins
    Of all the Agile practices, none is more foundational than the inspect & adapt cycle of the retrospective. Even if you struggle with every other aspect of Agile, if you consistently engage in productive retrospectives, you will get better.

    Industry surveys and studies suggest that 80% or more of Agile organizations have at least some distributed teams. Most of the traditional retrospective methods assume that all team members are co-located.

    Running effective retrospectives for distributed teams presents unique challenges, but also, potentially, some great advantages. In this webinar, Agile coach and Instant Agenda co-founder Michael Ball-Marian will discuss the three greatest challenges to running distributed Agile retrospectives and how to solve them. Michael will share a variety of tips and techniques that you can use in any retrospective, co-located or distributed. Finally, he’ll present a few ways in which a distributed retrospective can actually be better than a co-located one.
