    • PMO in the agile world: Aligning your Org from strategy through execution
      PMO in the agile world: Aligning your Org from strategy through execution Laureen Knudsen, CA Agile Adviser Recorded: Apr 12 2017 10:00 pm UTC 53 mins
    • We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: we believe that agile for the business is the key to building a thriving corporation in a fast-paced, competitive world. Business Agility is what helps you prioritize, fund, and commit to the right work, removes blocks so teams are faster and more productive, and allows you to trace, day-to-day, how your teams are delivering against plans.

      It starts with market analysis, strategy and product management, and finishes with steering, releasing, and monitoring what is in the market. This session will provide techniques on how to manage through this entire process. You’ll learn:

      • Why it's vital that you have the right market analysis as a base to your strategic decisions

      • How to align around the same goals and strategy

      • Why you need to track the “Big Data” within your company as much as you track your customers

      • How to distill your strategy into backlogs, releases and sprints

    • How to facilitate leadership participation for an Agile transformation
      How to facilitate leadership participation for an Agile transformation Joe Vallone, Scaled Agile Inc. Recorded: Apr 12 2017 11:00 pm UTC 44 mins
    • Are you frustrated with leadership wanting to delegate the Agile transformation and not getting involved? Come to this talk and learn about new ways to facilitate leadership engagement, not just buy-in. Learn how to form an Agile Leadership Scrum or Kanban team, where leadership will understand that they are responsible for the success or failure of the Agile transformation.

      As Edwards Deming once said, “It is not enough that top management commit themselves for life to quality and productivity. They must know what it is that they are committed to that is, what they must do. These obligations cannot be delegated.”

      Thus, leaders must understand what it is they must do and what they are committing to for an Agile transformation to be successful.

      There is something for every Agilist in this talk. Leaders will learn a new paradigm for Lean and Agile thinking and understand how they can actively lead an Agile transformation. Agile coaches will gain new tools and techniques for engaging leaders to build a significantly powerful guiding coalition for the transformation. Agile team members will learn how to leverage leadership support to quickly resolve impediments, as well as increase transparency, and coordination.

      Attendees will learn:

      - Creating leadership participation in a Scrum or Kanban team to lead the Agile transformation
      - Overcoming impediments to change management (e.g. leaders don't have time to participate)
      - How to coach leaders to think in terms of Lean and Agile leadership
      - Measuring Agile transformation success at the leadership level and understanding the return on investment
      - Sustaining the change culture so leaders will continue to participate

      Continuous Delivery = Agile + DevOps: Learn more with Guest Forrester Forrester VP and Principal Analyst, Diego Lo Giudice and Dan Rice, Agile Advisor, CA Technologies Recorded: Mar 2 2017 4:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    • The Global Agile Software Application Development Online Survey from Forrester Research, Inc. shows that a third of firms have been practicing agile for more than five years, and 54% have successfully scaled their Agile practices to more than half their teams.*

      People who practice agile methods often talk about "pulling quality forward." This and other agile tenets (delivering early and often, reducing batch size, inspecting and adapting, creating a collaborative culture and focusing on customer value) are designed to help organizations get valuable, high-quality features out the door, fast. But they can't happen just in engineering: agile succeeds as a mindset that's systemic throughout your organization.

      Join CA Technologies and guest speaker Diego Lo Giudice, Forrester VP and Principal Analyst in Application Development + Delivery to find out how YOU can help make your business an agile business by implementing agile both upstream (through your business portfolio) AND downstream (through testing and operations).

      If you're ready for a strategic, collaborative approach to delivering value to customers, then you won’t want to miss this webinar.

    • Take Agile to the Next Level: Featuring Forrester
      Take Agile to the Next Level: Featuring Forrester Forrester VP and Principal Analyst, Margo Visitacion and Agile Advisor, CA Technologies, Laureen Knudsen Recorded: Feb 28 2017 6:00 pm UTC 52 mins
    • According to recent research, “67% of high-performing CEOs are actively embracing agility, and 100% of them state that their companies actively experiment with new products and services.”* To deliver what customers really want, improve your bottom line and see teams really engage, you need to go beyond sprints and standups to business-level agile.

      As the speed of business grows and more competitors adopt agile, grassroots approaches just won’t cut it anymore. “Doing agile” doesn’t guarantee business value, and many companies now have the opportunity to connect their overall business strategy to the execution of the work. Are your agile practices improving or flatlining? Better yet, are they benefiting your bottom line?

      Join CA Technologies and guest speaker Margo Visitacion, Forrester VP and Principal Analyst in Enterprise Architecture, on February 28, at 10:00 AM PT / 1:00 PM ET, for a webinar packed with research-backed tips on sustainable, high-performance agile at scale.

    • Audits and Agile: Apples & Oranges?
      Audits and Agile: Apples & Oranges? Laureen Knudsen, Agile Advisor Recorded: Dec 14 2016 6:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    • In many organizations today—such as government, healthcare and banking—the pressure to comply with mandatory regulations feels in conflict with the pressure to move fast, release often and stay open to change. Even as more development teams adopt agile practices, regulatory agencies seem to prefer documentation over working software, templates over discussion, and governance over adaptiveness. So what's a high-compliance organization to do?
      One of the most often heard comments we hear when we talk agile in a highly-regulated environment is that it simply can't be done. If this is common thinking in your organization, you will not want to miss this engaging webinar.
      Laureen Knudsen will show you how to make agile audits easy. With more than 14 years of experience in regulated environments, Laureen designed a lightweight, auditable, product lifecycle allowing highly-regulated organizations to maintain regulatory compliance while reaping the benefits of agile methodologies.
      During this webinar, you’ll learn:
      •How to meet compliance requirements while shifting to agile practices
      •How to effectively use CA Agile Central project data to pass audits quickly and easily
      •How to streamline your product lifecycle
      Who doesn’t want an easier process when it comes to audits? Following the webinar we’ll leave time for Q&A, so bring your questions!

    • Agile for Speed, productivity and … happiness 
      Agile for Speed, productivity and … happiness  Longda Yin, Principal Agile Consultant Recorded: Oct 27 2016 5:00 pm UTC 53 mins
    • Agile employees outperform so-called “hard workers” by nearly 20 percent, and research from Korn Ferry found that companies with more agile executives had 25 percent higher profit margins than their peers. Given the pervasiveness of agile in software development circles, and the pervasiveness of software as the backbone for every business today, it’s no surprise that agile tenets have pervaded employee expectations about the workplace. It’s why some of our agile coaches encourage customers to use employee happiness as a productivity metric.  
       
      Agile cultures are engaging cultures, and engaging cultures produce engaged employees. Are you ready to get going? We can help. Join us on Thursday, October 27, 10am PST / 1pm ET for this engaging webinar.

      The Agile Enterprise is not a Myth…it's a Reality Dan Rice, Agile Advisor, Agile Management, Americas & EMEA Recorded: Oct 11 2016 5:30 pm UTC 61 mins
    • Many companies experimenting with agile development methods in their engineering and IT groups are having only mixed success.

      Unless you’re implementing agile both upstream (through your portfolio) and downstream (through testing and operations,) you’re not harnessing agile’s full power through Digital Transformation. Being faster to market doesn’t help your bottom line if you deliver the wrong things, and failing to get the right things into production fast means you’re leaving money on the table.

      Join this web seminar to gain insight into the benefits of a digital transformation. You’ll discover a strategic, collaborative approach to channel the power of agile and deliver more value to your customers.

      You'll learn how to:
      Deliver value quickly in small increments across work streams
      Provide visibility into strategic initiatives that inform the process, from planning through delivery
      Support continuous delivery with automation

      Agile Capitalization for Greater Business Value - 1PDU Pat Reed, Agile Alliance Director and Catherine Connor, Portfolio Agility Solutions Specialist at CA Recorded: Apr 7 2016 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • With disruptive technology advances, software assets play an increasingly important role in creating a competitive advantage. It’s time for organizations to recognize and manage business software as a strategic corporate asset. To keep up with the speed of business, companies turn to agile practices to deliver better customer value faster. Challenge: agile software development is too often misunderstood and misreported, impacting taxation, higher volatility in Profit and Loss (P&L) statements, and dramatic, unnecessary staff cuts in an economy where talent retention is paramount to foster innovation. To avoid those negative implications, companies can evolve their financial reporting practices to leverage the financial advantage of agile so they can benefit from the significantly increased tax savings and investor interest associated with agile capitalization. This session will unravel the benefits of agile capitalization and explain how to appropriately interpret and apply generally accepted accounting standard (GAAP SOP 98-1 and ASC 350-40) so your organization can increase its agile adoption to deliver more business value faster to customers.

      This event qualifies for 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU credit).
