Agile project management: running PRINCE2 projects with DSDM Atern by Richards, Keith, OGC – Office of Government Commerce (2007) Paperback

PRINCE2 Agile was launched in 2015 and offers a best-of-both-worlds framework for project management.

Combining the flexibility and responsiveness of agile with the clearly defined framework of PRINCE2, it offers guidance on:

  • How to tailor the integrated set of PRINCE2 principles, themes and processes
  • How to produce the PRINCE2 management products
  • How to map the common agile roles to the PRINCE2 project management team structure
  • How to incorporate the fundamental agile behaviours, concepts and techniques into PRINCE2

Key topics and questions covered during the webinar will include:

  • How does PRINCE2 Agile fit in to today’s marketplace
  • Why combine PRINCE2 with agile anyway?
  • How does it compare to other approaches such as AgilePM and Agile at GDS?
  • The PRINCE2 Agilometer; how much agile can or should I use?
  • Avoiding prejudices and moving from ‘iron’ triangles to a hexagon
  • What is PRINCE2 Agile comprised of?
  • How to see the marriage of the two philosophies

Join APMG for a webinar presented by PRINCE2 Agile lead author, Keith Richards (LinkedIn profile), during which Keith will address these topics and questions.

DevOps Is All The Rage

But there is still much misunderstanding about how one can realize the promises of DevOps in one’s own organization.

Fortunately, the DevOps movement is rooted in principles much deeper than buzzwords.

Before the terms “Agile” and “DevOps” became common monikers, lessons from previous engineering endeavors were forming a rich source of lessons and methodologies to fuel both movements.

However, often the tie is not made between those precursor lessons and the seemingly “new” principles and practices of DevOps.

In this presentation Chris Knotts, PMP  (LinkedIn profile) will review those foundations, explaining why they are so critical to any organization which hopes to realize success with DevOps or Agile principles at scale.

Improving cash flow and reducing costs are often combined into contradictory supply chain objectives.

In addition to clarifying costs versus cash flow, this webinar provides a framework for approaching cost reduction by defining and providing insights into three supply chain costs: structural design costs, planning cost trade-offs and operating waste.

Discussion Topics:

  • How to think differently about supply chain cost to make better decisions
  • What structural cost is, and how it can be optimized
  • How others have broken through traditional trade-offs to deliver increased performance and reduced cost

Test automation, continuous integration (CI), and reliable test data provisioning are all key elements to making DevOps work, as they provide the necessary capabilities to quickly and securely test and release software.

Without these technologies, the DevOps promise of rapidly deploying new services and applications is only a dream.

Effectively managing test data reduces risk when implementing CI and DevOps, along with accelerating release cycles, improving quality, and cutting costs.

You’ll learn:

  • How self-service test data powers DevOps and CI implementations
  • How organizations have saved millions and slashed development cycles
  • Common oversights when employing automation and DevOps
  • How to release applications faster with confidence through improved collaboration, automation, and visibility

Join this web seminar to learn how to execute an integrated test data management approach that will deliver seamless automation, efficiency, and security to your DevOps and continuous integration efforts.
