Both traditional (Waterfall) methodology and Agile methodology have pros and cons and can be effective ways to structure a project. For teams that are not practicing Agile, there are still Agile practices that can benefit them. Daily standups, retrospectives, and many other key Agile practices and ceremonies can benefit even a Waterfall team. For many, the most arduous part of transitioning to Agile in a waterfall environment happens at the beginning—in the uncertainty of how to put the initiative into motion. 

In this seminar, strategies and best practices to begin incorporating Agile practices are revealed. Real-world experiences working with existing project teams to begin incorporating Agile practices and ceremonies are shared. By initiating practices, teams start to understand Agile principles and mindset and become better prepared to take the next steps on their Agile journey. Specific Agile practices, and how to adapt each one to a traditional environment, are covered.

Siu-ConnieGreat solutions effect lasting results. Every project is an investment to enhance the state of a business. In order to deliver the best solution to a business challenge, you need to be very clear on the desired outcomes.

To secure funding for a project, you need to quantify benefits and justify the investment. To expedite project delivery, you need to steer team members away from irrelevant and insignificant issues that gobble up time and effort. To transition with clear ownership upon project completion, you need to provide the operations team a clear mandate with the proper tool to monitor the outcomes.

In this 2-day course, you learn a deliberate process to articulate results and develop relevant performance measures that help to ensure the project has a clear line-of-sight to the corporate goals. The rigor establishes clarity on the desired outcomes, enabling you filter noise and focus on the critical things that matter. You learn about the discipline necessary to measure and monitor pertinent performance, as well as the culture that fosters embracement at all levels, driving execution alignment and accelerating results delivery.

You will work on different exercises to practise what you learn so that you would be ready to apply the techniques upon returning to the office.
