Join us for two of the newest webinars in our Enfocus Solutions webinar series!
Agile Business Transformation
May 15th 2014 at 12 PM Eastern Standard Time (US & Canada)
Agile has become mainstream for developing software. Organizations that have adopted agile have seen improvements in quality, cycle time, and customer satisfaction. Standish Group research shows that agile projects are three times more successful than traditional plan driven projects.
However using Agile Development practices does not make an agile organization. Frequent delivery of software provides little value if the software cannot be deployed because of rigid release and change management processes. Another significant challenge facing enterprises is how to coordinate agile teams across multiple projects in multi-disciplined environments. Companies are appointing agile coaches to individual projects, but there is little or no company-wide coordination. In addition, little has been done to help transform the business to be able to respond more rapidly to change.
Agile transformation requires focus on four key areas:
- Agile Discovery
- Agile Delivery
- Agile Business Change
In this webinar, John Parker will address these four topics with heavy emphasis on Agile Discovery and Agile Business Change. He will also discuss how BAs and PMs will need to transform to operate in the agile environment.
Target Audience: PMOs, Agile Project Managers, Agile Business Analysts, Enterprise Portfolio Managers, and Product Owners
Agile & ITIL
June 10th 2014 at 12 PM Eastern Standard Time (US & Canada)
At first Agile and ITIL seem at odds because of the rigid release and change management process of ITIL and the rapid delivery of software in agile. However, the two frameworks are actually quite complimentary.
In this webinar, John Parker will describe how the design of End-to-End business services works in an agile development environment and how agile can easily be integrated into ITIL change and release management processes.
He will address the following topics:
- Managing Services instead of Products
- Defining Agile Services
- Service Portfolio Management
- Economic Benefit of Small Batch Sizes
- Design Coordination Management
- Creating a Service Design Package
- Service Transition Management
- Creating RFCs
- Dealing with Release and Change Management
- Continuous Delivery
- Achieving Agility and Operational Excellence
- Requirements: The Old way and the new way
- Using ITIL for Scaling Agile
Audience: ITSM Service Managers, Agile Product Owners, Portfolio Mangers, PMO Directors, and Program Managers
