"Lighten up! How to right-size program management processes to fit your organization" by Lauren Abraham Mahoney, Lubna Memon, Danal Slay from Jabian Consulting

Mahoney-LaurenMemon-LubnaSlay-Danal

As a project manager within your organization, you participate in project management processes and governance every day. Do these processes ever feel like more of a burden than a tool? Join us to learn how to use process optimization principles to better design project management processes. In this presentation, you will learn key elements of what makes a strong process, and basic elements of process improvement. We will talk about how to apply these principles to facilitate more effective project management.  

Even for organizations that already have good processes in place, governance is key to making sure those processes are followed, and checks are in place along the way to mitigate risks and prevent issues. We will compare process governance to project governance. Are you right-sizing the level of governance that is needed for your project? We will talk about key factors to determine the right level of rigor and governance needed for your organization and how to optimize project management governance. We will use current events examples of how project management processes and governance can drive failure or success.

This will be an interactive presentation to share a process approach to project management and governance. Our aim is to raise your awareness and understanding of process optimization principles and how you can apply them in your role as project manager.

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.
