  • Do you often find that when something fails in production, the response of a development team member is, “It works on my machine or at our end, you must be having the wrong version“?
  • Vice Versa on the other side of the table – do you find that the operations team always feels that the developers are not sensitive to the operational requirements and constraints?

If so, does that mean we are just developing software not a working system ?
Are we just working in Silos ?

DevOps aims at breaking the Silos and bringing in a culture of everyone “getting along”.

In this session Priya discusses how and why DevOps is the force behind the evolution where the development team and operations works together with business sponsors and quality assurance (QA) to deliver software that can be released to production at any point of time.

This webinar will highlight:

  • What is DevOps and what is it not?
  • DevOps Principles and Values
  • Team’s transformation to DevOps
  • Typical DevOps Delivery Model
  • DevOps Benefit Measurement Mechanism

This is the third and final webinar in the Afterburner Flawless Execution series.

Although it is not a prerequisite to participate in this session, be sure to view the first webinars in this series, 

  1. The Flawless Execution Advantage for Project Managers and
  2.  How to Identify Your Plan is at Risk: Managing Project Risk with Flawless Execution.

What do you do once your project comes to an end?

When projects end in success, we often high-five and move on to the next project or task.

This may be successful in the short run, but long-term, it is critical to pause after every one of your projects for a Debrief.

In Flawless Execution, the Debrief is where the root causes of success and failure are identified.

Joel Neeb (LinkedIn profile) will teach you how to conduct a structured Debrief to assure your team can scale successes and eliminate the failures that may have occurred during the project.

Agile project management is a game changer, especially for IT project managers.

That is because, typically, when agile is embraced by an organization, the role of project manager is de-emphasized in favor of self-organizing teams, and large strategic projects are decomposed in favor of shorter more frequent releases.

The business Project Management Office typically handles the strategic efforts, and the IT organization pivots to improving infrastructure and processes for managing code releases into environments.

So, what do these shifts mean for the IT project manager and their career path?

Using research and practical experience, this webinar introduces the agile concepts that most affect IT project managers and their options moving forward.

Main learning points include: 

  • Agile concepts in relation to project management processes
  • The shift from IT project manager to scrum master or product owner or subject matter expert.
  • Relationship between scrum master and product owner
  • New skills to succeed in the agile universe with an emphasis on:
    • Facilitator: Coaching and team development
    • Change manager: Emphasis on flexibility
    • Innovation cheerleader
    • Business story writer and backlog management

Presenter: Bonnie Cooper (LinkedIn profile), PMP®, Instructo for Corporate Education Group, is a twenty-year information technology professional. In her current role as the Program Director for the Massachusetts Medical Society’s (MMS) Corporate IT Program Office, Bonnie is responsible for coordinating the efforts of project teams, overseeing the implementation of project standards, managing the corporate IT strategic plan, and leading the program to re-engineer the membership platform for MMS.
