Sprinting To Be Agile!
Episode 2: Work Structures (race day prep), April 12
In the last episode, we discussed the importance of organizing cross-functional teams around broad-based product/service definitions as the first foundational step to agility. Once the structures are in place, many challenges still remain in managing the demand that flows into your product backlog.This episode discusses the good, the bad, and the ugly of product backlog management and provides practical advice to prepare you for the race ahead of delivering products effectively.
Professional Development Day 2023
Grow Your Skills
It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the recent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sought after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
