Everybody knows DevOps Is About
Bringing Dev & Ops Together

But DevOps is also about understanding value, fast delivery, automation, quality, and tuning complex adaptive systems in a way that optimizes the whole.

In The Phoenix Project: A Novel about IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win  there are a lot of parallels drawn between the world of mass manufacturing and IT engineering. But even though it’s a fantastic book, Gene Kim and his co-authors only scratch the surface of these parallels.

If we are actually going to apply them, we need more. The total quality revolution of manufacturing offers more lessons for IT engineering teams than most of us realize…way more than the taste we get in The Phoenix Project would suggest.

Join Chris Knotts, PMP – (LinkedIn profile) and learn the lessons can be summed up in one word: Lean.

CIOs and IT leaders in regions and industries that are struggling economically are being told to cut the IT budget by 15%, but still get critical digital business initiatives implemented.

Accelerating the move to enterprise agile is a high-risk, but high-reward, way to do both.

Discussion Topics:

  • How to use headcount reductions as a “burning platform” to accelerate an enterprise agile transformation
  • How to redeploy IT positions into agile teams
  • How to trim the scope of every delivery to the smallest change that provides business value

It has been repeatedly observed that Lean and Agile, being two parallel streams of development, are both affecting the shape organizations are taking.

These two paths intersect at several points and many researchers have already used them together, at times for specific purposes of organizational performance enhancement and continuous improvement.

From Organizational Project Management perspective, PMI has recently embraced agility in project management and have natural snowball effect on program and portfolio management.

While we are discussing Organizational Agility on one end, and impacting Organizational Project Management on other,This session will introduce the natural complimentary fusion of agile and lean.

The focus of this webinar is multi-fold:

  • Relates the organizational advantages of both Lean and Agile
  • Highlights the similarities and differences between the two
  • Shows how Lean Agile they can be removed or even synergized
  • Shows how can Lean Agile best be unified bringing in benefits of both the streams.

While agile focuses more on enhancing project management, lean is more inclined towards process improvement, which in a sense, has a role within the project as well as the whole organization.

This is because of their origins, lean being originated from manufacturing industry and agile from software industry.

Advantages of both can be applied on all kinds of organizations and all types of projects, forces us to deliberate more on experimenting with various combinations and areas from strategy and business to organizational project management.

This session will conceptualize a Lean-Agile (LeAgile) Organization taking both directions, “Organizational Agility” and “Lean Organizations”.

Live Webinar February 21st, 2017 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST
Activity Type: Education – Course or Training  1 Hour  1 PDU free
Provider: O’Reilly

Portfolio mapping requires taking an end-to-end view of the life-cycle of initiatives in your organization, but using the same strategy, practices, and processes across the entire portfolio will result in negative outcomes and results.

Barry O’Reilly explores how the world’s largest organizations develop better strategies, information gathering, and decision making across their portfolios to drive improved business results and customer satisfaction.

Drawing on real-world examples, Barry traces successful strategies across four main domains, explaining why thriving companies:

  • Explore early-stage initiatives with high degrees of uncertainty that are bets for the future.
  • Exploit initiatives that have achieved product-market fit and that the organization wants to grow and scale.
  • Sustain initiatives that have become repeatable and scalable business models, products, or services that drive the majority of revenue for the organization.
  • Retire initiatives that are long lived or no longer beneficial (or even limiting) to the organization’s future success or strategy. Initiatives that do not achieve desired outcomes in any domain should be killed and their investment transferred to other initiatives.

By the end of this webcast, you’ll understand why and how high-performance organizations focus on building capability to continuously move initiatives through the model from Explore to Retire.
