What’s your backup plan? Do you have a backup plan for the backup plan? What about “Plan D?”

Sometimes, it just seems like overkill. You don’t even need a contingency plan. But sometimes, you have to fall back to Plan B…or C…or…you get the idea. In this one-hour workshop, Carl Pritchard takes you through the beauty of the contingency, fallback, and continuity of operations plans. He points out that some plans need to be at a macro level, while other aspects need to crawl down into “the weeds”. He’ll give you pointers on creating the plans, selling them to others and recognizing there are times to scrap the plans entirely, and find something…anything…that works.

Due to coronavirus concerns, we will be hosting this event through webinar. Because of this change, member rate is now $8 and non-member rate is $10.

5 ways you can integrate Agile into Project Management

I often get asked by project managers, “How can I become Agile in a project management world?”. My answer is that you can “add some Agile” to your current project management world while still operating as normal. How do you do that? It’s best to rethink some elements of project management and keep the rest the same. For example, having a “lessons learned” session at the end of the project just because it is on the project plan isn’t useful for a project team that may never work together again. Especially if the information isn’t captured in a lessons learned database, for example, and shared with PMs before projects start.

This presentation will focus on 5 ways in which project managers can integrate “some Agile” into their project management framework. I will break down in detail how PMs can leverage Agile tools and techniques while still operating as a PM. In addition, I will outline the value and benefit of layering “some Agile” into your PM game will bring you.

OBJECTIVES

  • Learn 5 ways that PMs can integrate Agile into their PM processe
  • Understand in detail how to implement Agile tools and techniques into a PM framework
  • Comprehend the value and benefit of adding Agile techniques to your projects
