Today’s project leaders are faced with a problem: While most of work follows a traditional Waterfall methodology, they’re increasingly asked to collaborate with development teams working in Agile.

These two methodologies lie at the farthest ends of the spectrum and conjure up deep-rooted opinions when teams are asked to pick a side or work with one another.

Choosing Agile or Waterfall is becoming less of a choice, as more organizations require a mix of the two.

Sound familiar?

Join Derek, Carl, And Nick for a roundtable discussion and get the industry experts’ tips and tricks to allow Agile and Waterfall to work together.

Solve the pain of this new work management style and learn how to stay productive by mixing methodologies.

Course Learning Objectives Include:

  • Understand common communication and reporting challenges associated with “competing” methodologies
  • Discover how leading organizations are successfully managing multiple methodologies
  • Learn steps to supporting Agile and Waterfall within your organization

Online Webinar – Recorded September 24, 2014
Duration: 1 Hour Credits: 1 PDU Category C  – Free PDU
Presented by Cisco Webex Online

  1. What makes an organization a great place to work?
  2. What is the process that individual employees go through in determining that?

Those are the questions that researchers at The Ken Blanchard Companies® set out to discover over the course of a seven-year research project to identify the organizational, job, and relationship factors that lead to Employee Work Passion.

In this webinar, Dr. Drea Zigarmi, (kenblanchard.com bio) Founding Associate and Director of Research for The Ken Blanchard Companies will present the research that sheds light on the process that individual employees go through in determining whether critical factors are present in a specific work environment.

He will use the Employee Work Passion model to show how an individual appraisal of organizational and job characteristics leads to positive or negative intentions, behaviors, and subsequent organizational or unit results.

Participants will explore:

  • Why Leadership Matters—how strategic and operational leadership behaviors impact Employee Work Passion
  • The Employee Appraisal Process—how perceptions of the work environment lead to positive or negative employee intentions in five key areas
  • The Employee Work Passion Model—12 work environment factors all leaders need to know, evaluate, and plan for
  • Four Critical Implications—and how to get started

Project sponsorship is a leading position “par excellence”. The project sponsor governs the project and consequently makes critical decisions that will inevitably impact the planning, execution and success -or not of the project.

This individual is required to have leadership competencies to be able to be a good navigator, roadblock remover, analyst, and sound decision maker.

Mission is accomplished only when business value is delivered to the organization.

With Organizational Change Management projects in particular, good leadership in executive sponsorship positions is in mounting anticipation.

The project sponsor is required to ensure sound change management practices are integrated with best practices in project management.

Since project sponsor’s role is still unclear to many, this role in change projects is certainly worth clarifying.

A study of sponsor’s activities as per PMI Managing Change in Organizations Practice Guide will be one of the highlights of the webinar.

In addition, a compelling case study on how executive sponsorship facilitated positive change in an organization will be presented.

Presenter: Radhia Benalia, PhDc, PMP (LinkedIn profile) Radhia’sdoctoral thesis around Leadership Competencies of Project Sponsors. Radhia is teaching  Leadership, Sponsorship, and Change Management courses at the American University of Beirut.  She has worked in 3 continents and several walks of life, such as academia, corporate, and even politics as she has run for office in British Columbia in 2009.  She has also been the quality manager for several large consultancy projects in the Middle-East, and is now the Head of Engagement at Global University.

Sponsored by: PMI Risk Management CoP (REP #S048)

Organizations invest a lot of time, money, and energy into developing and utilizing risk management practices as part of their project management disciplines.

Yet, when you move beyond the project to the program, portfolio, PMO and even organizational level, that same level of risk command and control rarely exists.

With this in mind, well-known subject matter expert and author Andy Jordan starts where most leave off. He explores risk management at the portfolio, program, and PMO levels.

Presenter: Andy Jordan PMP (LinkedIn profile, @RoffensianPM) , president of Roffensian Consulting Inc,  is a sought-after speaker and instructor in PM, risk management, leadership and communication related subjects. Andy’s literary works have been printed in industry and corporate publications worldwide.
