  • Virtual Meeting: Agile Metrics: Measuring What Matters

    -

    Self-organizing teams that create and own their own processes? — what a concept! How could that possibly work? How can we trust a team to self-organize in a way that supports the outcomes important to the organization and its customers? Self-organization requires at a minimum a shared understanding of the team’s goal. Add to that shared understanding clarity around a definition of success and how we measure success and we have set the environment for effective self-organization. So, what role does metrics play in guiding, enabling, and supporting an Agile team? How do we know that we’re making progress in an Agile context? What does an Agile success look like? Join us for a look at metrics through an Agile lens.

    -

    About the Presentation

    If you want to strengthen teams and get better results having managers who the coach is key.

    But in the past, it’s been difficult for busy managers to shift from the traditional management style of telling people what to do rather than taking on the coaching approach of asking. Why? In today’s world managers are stretched more thinly than ever before, continually finding themselves stuck with just too much on their plate. They don’t have time to add another task to their job description but need to coach someone fast and as part of the work they already do - not in addition to it.

  • The Prioritization Conundrum

    -

    Outline/Structure of the Talk
    Toby will start the session by setting the expectations and the foundation for the session. He will discuss and unpack the methods, frameworks and techniques available today. (Examples: Opportunity scoring, Story Mapping, Stacked ranking etc.) He will facilitate an understanding of the traps and challenges involved with prioritization and share some personal stories to drive home the points.

    Toby will discuss his recommendations of 5 ‘go-to’ prioritization methods that are not only practical but are relatively easy to facilitate. He will facilitate a quick simulation exercise during which participants will choose the optimum prioritization technique for the unique needs pertaining to the program (simulated) to help the participants learn. He will conclude the session with a debrief to ensure that there are great ‘take home’ points!

    LEADER: Anyone who takes responsibility for finding the potential in people and processes and has the courage to develop that potential. – Brené Brown

    What if you weren’t born to be a leader? What if your “boss” isn’t a good leader? Should you worry? Should you give up, “fall in line,” and wait for others to show you the way?

    Positively, absolutely, without any doubt, NO!

  • The Organic PMO

    -

    The Organic PMO. Standing a Project Management Office (PMO) can be arduous, time consuming, expensive, and a difficult process to undergo. Lack of support and buy-in at the top and low levels of an organization contribute to the failure and lack of adoption of a PMO. Our discussion will center on how to successfully stand up a PMO from the bottom-up that will be embraced by an organization. We will focus on how to jumpstart an organizational grass roots movement to help evangelize and rally project managers to discuss and define pain points and ultimately work together to implement and improve PM processes, tools, and frameworks in a collaborative manner. An “Organic PMO” does not start off as a PMO that is mandated by senior management, rather it is built slowly and incrementally instituting small successes along the way to demonstrate business value.

Servant Leadership isn’t about giving people everything they need regardless. Many leaders will be working within the constraints of a tight budget and with little time at their disposal. Let’s talk about the basic principles of Servant Leadership and understand the best test that is difficult to administer and yet so simple.

    Thinking in Bets: Making Smarter Decisions When You Don’t Have All the Facts by Annie Krupp (2018). Current price is $13.99 for the Kindle edition on Amazon. The book may also be available from your local library.

    Even the best decision doesn't yield the best outcome every time. There's always an element of luck that you can't control, and there is always information that is hidden from view. So the key to long-term success is to think in bets: How sure am I? What are the possible ways things could turn out? What decision has the highest odds of success? Did I land in the unlucky 10% on the strategy that works 90% of the time? Or is my success attributable to dumb luck rather than great decision making?

  • Agile Risk Management

    -

    As large organizations undertake the exciting journey of Agile transformation, they inevitably face a certain identity crisis that makes them question everything they have known about project management and practiced for years (and decades). PMI and the PMBOK gave us a structured framework of 5 process groups and 12 knowledge areas, with all the processes within, each with clear inputs and outputs. And then Agile came along with only 4 values and 12 principles that fit on a single page, and blew everything away.

    We are amid a major transition toward Agile and DevOps, where seasoned project managers are expected to pivot and embrace a new way of delivering better software. However, most Agile training classes and books focus of the desired and ideal state of Agile practice, without connecting the dots for how to get there.
