Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Strategic Agile vs. PPM – a grudge match or BFFs?

Agile is increasingly becoming a factor at the strategic level. There are a number of different frameworks for scaling Agile and they are starting to touch on the realm of traditional portfolio management. Does that mean portfolio management has to change? Does strategic Agile have to adapt? Are we going to end up with multiple portfolios? In this engaging webinar portfolio management expert Andy Jordan breaks through some of the confusion and offers guidance on:
•How to incorporate more strategic Agile concepts into portfolio management
•The importance of differentiating strategic Agile from Agile for strategic projects (they are different)
•Minimizing disruption and maximizing commitment with strategic Agile
•Leveraging Agile in all forms of portfolio management
This webinar promises to challenge some of the Agile stereotypes that exist as Andy offers innovative ideas and approaches that promise to give all organizations a chance to improve portfolio success. Don’t miss out, register today.

    Rick Morris, R2 Consulting and Alf Abuhajleh, CA Technologies
    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.

  • 3 Challenges of Distributed Agile Retrospectives & How to Solve Them Recorded: Jul 19 2018 58 mins
    Michael Ball-Marian, Agile Expert at CA Technologies
    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.
