The Agile Enterprise: Scaling Agile - Up or Down?
    Jan 8, 2021 9:00:00 AM EST (UTC-5)

    Presenter: Stelian ROMAN
    Scaling Agile has been a hot topic in the last 3 to 5 years. Organizations that have successful software deliveries are trying to spread the success of the Scrum Team(s) beyond technology departments. On the other hand, laggards, teams and organizations that didn't embrace Agile when it became clear that it is the future, are cutting corners and launching mammoth programs to "do" Agile. Scrum, the core of the most recent "scaled" frameworks, was designed for teams of less than 10 people developing software products. Even at that size, it is "difficult to master", according to its authors. This webinar takes a look at Agile scaling from both perspectives: agile software development created for small homogenous teams AND agile manufacturing conceived in the last century for large companies as a replacement to Lean. The webinar is based on the author's 30+ years’ of experience as a practitioner. From manufacturing to software development and then to projects, this webinar is an analysis of the famous mindset change and the challenges and lessons learned while doing it and helping others to do it.

    The Agile Enterprise: Agile Frameworks - from Product to Project
    Jan 29, 2021 9:00:00 AM EST (UTC-5)

    Presenter: Stelian ROMAN
    Agile has often been positioned as the silver bullet from the training class that will deliver "twice the scope in half the time," only by shifting the "mindset" and throwing out centuries of knowledge. There will be #noprojects and #noestimations, and the Scrum Masters should replace Project Managers. The reality is that most Agile scaling initiatives beyond software product development or maintenance will fail if they are not treated and managed like a project with clear goals, resources and delivery timeframes. Project Management Knowledge areas, especially Organizational Change Management, Stakeholder Management, and Risk Management are even more important in adaptive delivery, aka Agile, than in predictive delivery. This webinar is a comparison between product development and project management, including what is different and what is common between the two disciplines, how one fits within the other, and the mandatory "mindset change" required to move from product to project.
