Making IT succeed today involves much more than technology considerations. Modern ways of working rely on people working together in high performance teams, placing increasing emphasis on people having strong soft skills. So in this post, while we have consultants sharing technology learning on MicroServices, VSTS and Azure, we also have consultants sharing learning on cognitive bias and the human and organisational considerations for Agile adoption and transformation.
Whatever IT role you have, you need to continuously adapt to the changing needs of the market. So, in this post we share the latest articles that our consultants have found valuable this month.
On 19-20 April we will be delivering a one-off certification course in Auckland - Certified Agile Leadership, with international trainer and Certified Enterprise Coach Michael Sahota.
Agile is a means to achieving organisational goals, such as organisational growth. The biggest challenge to successful Agile adoption is changing the organisational culture. It's not about practices, it's about people.
Last week I presented a webinar The ‘edges’ of Scrum – Addressing project management concerns on Agile projects which focused on where Scrum fits in to a typical PRINCE2 and PMI project lifecycle and what project management concerns are addressed by Scrum.
During the webinar we received a number of questions, some of them I responded to as part of the webinar, but there was insufficient time for all of the questions. So in this blog post I answer all of the questions asked during the webinar.
