Agility, engagement & success

I supported an EVA / PPM event in London on the 16/17th June 2016 and was asked to write an article, which you can find here:

Agility Engagement and Success in Managing and Delivering Change


Agile with Project

Here’s how you can use Project and Project Online to manage Agile projects

The following is taken from: Implement Scaled Agile Framework® to support epics, release trains, and multiple backlogs

As enterprises are benefiting from individual agile teams, the question now is how do we scale these practices across teams and gain a portfolio view of the progress of agile teams throughout the enterprise? To address these needs, many businesses are using the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe™).

If you’re interested in using SAFe, you can configure projects created with the Scrum, Agile, or CMMI processes to track SAFe criteria. Moreover, just as your Agile tools support Scrum and Agile practices, it can support SAFe and large numbers of teams to work together on epics that span releases.

In this article you’ll learn how SAFe concepts map to your Agile tools, how to plan and track SAFe projects using your Agile tools, and how to configure your Agile tools to support SAFe.

If you’re familiar with Scrum but not familiar with SAFe, these videos at Scaled Agile Framework Foundations from Inbar Oren, the Lean Samurai, are a good way to orient yourself.
