  • How to facilitate leadership participation for an Agile transformation Apr 12 2017 11:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    Joe Vallone, Scaled Agile Inc.
    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
  • The difference between Agile PPM and agile PPM – and why you need both! Apr 12 2017 11:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Steve Romero, Romero Consulting
    Agile development methodology is critical to almost every organization that relies on software development to achieve their enterprise strategy. Companies of every shape and size now rely heavily on agile development projects and programs to quickly and assuredly deliver new products and services to their customers.

    Initially viewed as antithetical to project governance, organizations must recognize agile efforts require the power of project and portfolio management (PPM) to assure agile projects realize enterprise strategic objectives. This webcast will describe the multiple dimensions of “Agile PPM” and what organizations need to do to enable PPM agility in their Agile world.
  • PMO in the agile world: Aligning your Org from strategy through execution Apr 12 2017 10:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    Laureen Knudsen, CA Agile Adviser
    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
  • Struggle Between Agile and Project Management Apr 12 2017 9:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    Rick Morris, R2 Consulting, LLC
    Agile is not a fad, it is a reality. In today’s application economy almost every company is a software company. One of the biggest misconceptions is that Agile is new. However, there is a struggle that seems to be happening between the understanding of the Agile world and the Project Management world. What does it mean to be Agile? If we are an Agile company, do we need Project Management? Is one better than the other? Can the two exist with each other?

    As organizations are looking to eliminate the barrier between ideas and outcomes the impacts of how to prioritize, execute, allocate funding and resources, and embrace change amplify the need to understand the roles and responsibilities of everyone.

    Join Rick Morris, a certified Scrum Agile Master, consultant, best-selling author, mentor, and evangelist for project management as he shares his real life experiences and even how his own thinking has been transformed in what will be an entertaining, enlightening, and lively discussion.
  • Business Agility: Avoiding the Four Failure Modes Apr 12 2017 8:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    John Orvos, Sr. Solution Strategist, Agile Business Unit CA Technologies
    Empowering people and delivering value faster to customers is what is expected from agile. Business agility enables companies to respond faster to rapidly changing markets and compete with market disruptors. Despite the increasing need for business agility to compete these days, companies have still not been able to accomplish this, and there is a growing list of reasons for agile failures.

    Join your colleagues as John Orvos, a Sr. Agile Solutions Strategist, enlightens us on how to avoid the Four Failure Modes of agile.

    •Company idealism vs. Customer Realism
    •Agile Expert vs. Vision Re-engineer

  • You Have Scrum Teams, So What? Create Value, Not Just Process Apr 12 2017 7:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    Doug Dockery, CA Technologies
    Many organizations believe that once they've established Agile/Scrum teams they can pat themselves on the back and mark 'agile' as done at their company. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. Team Agility is almost considered table stakes in modern development organizations and is met with a resounding "so what" from the business. This is because Agility confined to the team level won't solve the organizations larger issues. The promise of agility at scale is the value it brings to the entire enterprise - linking strategy with execution.

    Join Doug Dockery, an architect of Agile solutions and enterprise Agile coach at CA, as he discusses why simply having Agile teams isn’t sufficient to drive maximum value in your organization. By attending, you will learn how to:

    • Build the right thing at the right time
    • Prioritize work by value
    • Facilitate cross-team communication throughout your organization
    • Gain insight to what exactly is being worked on by teams
    • Collect the right agile metrics and how to share with the teams
  • 2017 Pulse of the Profession®: Success Rates Rise Apr 12 2017 7:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Tricia Cabrey, Market Researcher, PMI
    PMI’s latest Pulse of the Profession® research suggests a positive change in the way organizations are managing projects and programs. At the same time, the definition of success is evolving, and the ability of projects to deliver what they set out to do—the expected benefits—is just as important as the traditional measures of scope, time, and cost. This presentation will review PMI’s latest findings of how organizations are becoming more mature with their project practices and what factors they are investing in that distinguish more successful project performance.

    Andy Jordan, ProjectManagement.com
    Business agility is rapidly becoming the latest hot trend in the agile community, but what exactly does that mean for most organizations? To understand some of the key elements that contribute to successful business agility, CA Technologies commissioned ProjectManagement.com to conduct a global survey. The survey was designed to examine the behaviors and traits of effective project delivery with a focus on business results. We went even deeper than simply asking about agile, we looked at strategic and transformational projects, success rates and cancellation rates, and change and planning. All of these insights helped us to identify the readiness of organizations to embrace business agility and this webcast will discuss some of the key findings including:

    · The areas where organizations are most and least ready for business agility

    · The traits and behaviors of the most successful organizations in areas impacting agility

    · Our recommendations for increasing organizational readiness and agility
  • People, Projects and Performance – What’s Really Going On? Apr 12 2017 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Andy Jordan, ProjectManagement.com
    Project management is becoming an increasingly complex aspect of how organizations operate. Projects are the vehicles by which strategy is delivered and the largest element in determining whether goals and objectives are achieved. To learn more, CA Technologies commissioned ProejctManagement.com to explore the most common challenges organization face with project execution as well as the factors that lead to organizational success. This global survey examined numerous elements of project delivery – PMOs, resource management, budget and benefit tracking, contributors to and detractors from success, project types and methodologies. Most importantly of all we analyzed the results against our survey respondents’ identification of how successful their organizations were at delivering success through projects. The results are comprehensive and in this webcast, Andy Jordan will present some of the key findings including:

    · The common traits of high performing organizations

    · The most impactful improvements your organization can make to increase success rates

    · The key behaviors successful organizations have adopted – and avoided

The results will shock and inform and the takeaways will help you grow and improve. All attendees will also be given exclusive access to the full research report. Register today!
  • Creating Digital Businesses Apr 12 2017 5:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    Jim Tremlett, Agile Advisor, CA Technologies
    The third wave of agility has begun – business agility (Wave 1: agile, Wave 2: scaled agile, Wave 3: business agility).The transformation of enterprises to digital businesses is leading this third wave. In this talk, we’ll discuss what this “digital transformation” entails.

    As evidenced by attendance at the recent, inaugural Business Agility Conference in February, this transformation is most acutely felt in the digital arms of traditional banks and financial services companies were rapidly changing customer expectations and competitive pressures from fintech start-ups are driving the transformation.

  • What is Business Agility? Apr 12 2017 4:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    Stephen Denning
    Business agility is an increasingly common theme discussed in organizations, but what is it? Research has shown that there are three laws or principles found across all agile organizations:

    • The law of the customer: An obsession with delighting customers by continuously adding value for customers and users, as well as a recognition of the current need to generate instant, intimate, frictionless value at scale.

    • The law of the small team: Big difficult problems need to be disaggregated into small batches and performed by small cross-functional autonomous teams, working iteratively in short cycles in a state of flow, with fast feedback from customers and end-users.

    • The law of the network: A recognition that, to achieve full business agility, the whole organization needs to embrace the entrepreneurial mindset.

    Pursuit of all three laws is key to sustaining business agility. Individually, none of the observed management practices are new. What is new and different is the way that the management goals, practices and values constitute a coherent and integrated approach to continuous innovation, fueled by a pervasive entrepreneurial mindset.
  • Get Agile By Moving From Perfect to Fast Apr 12 2017 3:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    Jeffrey Hammond, Forrester
    Your customers are adopting new product experiences more rapidly than ever before — what Forrester calls “hyperadoption.” These hyper-demanding customers require immediate satisfaction, relentless innovation, and rapid iteration. How do you pivot your teams, processes, and culture to make them more Agile and help them shift from a preference for bulletproof solutions toward a bias for action — and a tolerance for occasional failure?

    In this session Forrester Vice President & Principal Analyst Jeffrey Hammond will review how digital disruptors are replacing traditional development and delivery processes with Agile practices, dev-ops techniques, and a product development mindset. We’ll also examine the cultural impact this shift creates, especially when it comes to recruiting talent and organizing teams. Finally, we’ll examine how delivery tactics and tools are evolving in support of these high-performance Agile development and delivery teams.
  • PMO: Strategic, Agile and Value Oriented Apr 12 2017 2:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    Margo Visitacion, Forrester
    Responding to demand for high quality customer experience, firms are pervasively adopting Agile and using those practices to deliver initiatives. Unfortunately, when these digital initiatives scale, the lack of enterprise program management maturity quickly becomes evident. Consistent disciplines are essential, but past PMO failures make IT leadership leery. The next generation PMO takes a center of excellence approach to strike the right balance: stripping bureaucracy to focus on strategy, practice lean portfolio management practices, build competencies, while delivering them in a lightweight service oriented approach.

    This presentation discusses the organizational structures, skill sets, practices and tools that enable modern, Agile PMOs keep organizations focused, mitigate dependencies and measure delivered value.
  • The Importance of Roles & Organizational Structure in Digital Transformation Apr 12 2017 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Michael Azoff, Ovum
    The convergence of tools and processes has been instrumental in making agile and DevOps successful. The roles and re-structuring of the organization that lead to changes in behavior are just as important, if not more so, than agile process and automated tools. Large enterprises will continue to be multi-speed/hybrid environments. In this session we examine how to make the agile and DevOps cultural change succeed in real companies.

    Forrester VP and Principal Analyst, Diego Lo Giudice and Dan Rice, Agile Advisor, CA Technologies
    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 Recorded: Feb 28 2017 52 mins
    Forrester VP and Principal Analyst, Margo Visitacion and Agile Advisor, CA Technologies, Laureen Knudsen
    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.
