“AGILE” IN A PROJECT WORLD

PHIL SEALLY

Project Management and organisational change can no longer be sustainable under the traditional waterfall method of completing one task before another can begin.  Multi-facet projects are becoming more complex with multiple delivery outputs, restricted delivery timeframes, and the involvement of large teams of resources to produce these outcomes.  Businesses are now required to do more with less and to deliver organisational change with minimal impact to the operation of the business in order to be effective.

In recent years, the demand for more agile management of projects is proving that it can provide the flexibility and responsiveness that businesses have been seeking.   With the introduction of the Agile Methodology to Project Management, businesses are embracing the methodology’s ability to deliver projects quicker with greater stakeholder involvement throughout the project’s lifecycle to produce more robust outcomes. 

Phil will guide you through how Agile can be used effectively to achieve great results with complete business buy-in.  He will provide a comparison of how Agile can be used in complex project that have failed using the traditional method for managing projects, and how it can benefit the organisation in more ways than one. 

 

The entrepreneurial Project Manager

Julia Checchia

Succeeding in the 21st Century is no longer about being a master of process and discipline; it is more about mastering your ability to connect, create and innovate with flexibility and agility. An entrepreneurial mindset is like an executive mindset , that is to focus on delivering high value to the customer, employees and the  organization.

In this presentation, Julia will discuss how project success has a direct correlation to systems and entrepreneurship. While the  idea of systems and entrepreneurship seems quite conflicting, a blend of the two seems to be the  genesis of success. Julia alludes to the fact  that not everybody is likely to be an entrepreneur within, nevertheless a project professional is more likely to perform like entrepreneurs as they are familiar with the concept of working in temporary, risky and complex environments. Julia will present her ideas based on project success statistics and supportive metrics alongside with a small self-assessment.

 

Panel discussion: The agile entrepreneur – a project manager’s view

The panel discussion will examine how project managers can tackle requirements gathering, change management, talent and risk management in an agile and entrepreneurial manner in order to increase project collaboration, team and stakeholder engagement as well as increase probability of project success.
