Juggling Act: How to Effectively Manage Your Projects and Your Stakeholders

Date/Time: 10/5 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm EST

Course ID: MDW1286a / Duration: 1 Hour / Credits: 1 PDU

The best project managers know that managing the expectations, goals, and objectives of key stakeholders is critical to project success. If the stakeholders aren’t satisfied, even the most efficient and well-executed project won’t be deemed successful in the eyes of those that matter most. The best way to ensure stakeholder needs are met is to establish them up front, along with clear and mutually agreed upon communication and project completion requirements. By considering stakeholder perceptions while developing the project charter and project plan, you can avoid unnecessary readjustments during project execution.

In this webinar, you will learn:

- How to initiate projects that help your organization achieve its goals
- How to develop a project charter and a project management plan
- How to identify and analyze project stakeholders and determine their information needs and communication requirements
- How to manage stakeholder expectations and ensure their satisfaction

Building and Maintaining Agile Teams

Date/Time: 11/4 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm EST

As organizations transition to the agile environment, they must transition to an agile mindset. This requires the definition of new roles, which can cause added confusion. Unfortunately there is no concise definition of how to build an agile team and there tends to be a lot of debate over the traditional roles of the project manager and the business analyst, as well as other players on agile projects. Organizations that maintain a traditional IT way of thinking on roles are likely putting their adoption of agile at risk.


Two questions that those new to agile usually ask are: - what are the roles on an agile team? And how do you organize an agile team? This webinar addresses these questions by examining best practices in how to develop and maintain an agile team.

This webinar will explore:

1. Drawing lines from traditional titles to agile titles
2. Staying focused on the agile manifesto and agile principles
3. Focusing on building a team with skills that align with agile versus focusing on roles
4. Defining components of a successful agile team and some core principles
5. Getting good people and the importance of effective communication
6. Adopting the agile mindset
