Project manager vs. program manager. The two roles often differ in their day-to-day tasks and the overarching approach to their role. Program managers are more strategic in their thinking and deliverables, while the project manager is often working on day-to-day task management on a more cellular level. But before we compare the roles of a program manager and a project manager in-depth, we must first understand the difference between a project and a program.
Our profession is undergoing a transformation, moving away from rigid, one-size-fits-all methodologies. Instead, project managers are embracing dynamic and adaptable frameworks that carefully consider project and product variables to determine the most suitable development approaches and project life cycles.

It’s no secret that culture can have a big impact on communication. Just think about how much harder it is to communicate with someone from a different country who doesn’t speak your language. But culture can affect communication even when everyone speaks the same language. Different cultures have different ways of communicating, and if you’re not aware of these differences, it can lead to misunderstanding and conflict.

I’ve written and spoken frequently about the many issues with holding infrequent lessons learned sessions. The good news is that many practitioners now recognize that it is much better to discuss and implement improvement ideas frequently over the life of their projects than just at the end of a phase or the project as a whole. This applies both to projects which follow a predictive life cycle as those following an adaptive one, with the main difference being the frequency at which such re

It’s a myth that Scrum Teams don’t plan. Scrum Teams plan at the Sprint Planning event and when refining work items. They also create a forecast or a roadmap that shows their plans across multiple Sprints. . Scrum Teams plan frequently to navigate complicated environments where new information emerges constantly.

Project management is a lot more complicated than relying on the luck of the Irish to ensure people are working on the right priorities at the right time. As we all know – relying heavily on luck can have serious ramifications to our project plan. Luck comes along suddenly and unexpectedly in managing priorities without a project management tool. But it’s nothing you can try to repeat without the right resources.

Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is critical for industry growth in today’s fast-paced and ever-changing risk landscape. When building your ERM program foundation, you need to answer questions like: Do we have robust board and management support? Do we understand and articulate our bank’s risk appetite and how that impacts our business units? How are we measuring and rating our risk impact, likelihood, and controls to mitigate our risk?

Idea Management Team collaboration requires active participation and engagement from your employees. But getting them to be participative shouldn’t be a demand from their superiors. Team collaboration will only be effective if it’s a voluntary action and desire from the individuals involved. The result of effective team collaboration reflects clearly on the outcome of a project compared to one person taking on all the tasks.

If you want to be successful at Agile Transformation —especially at scale—you’ll need more than Agile Coaches teaching your teams the ceremonies of Scrum or how to do SAFe and LeSS. Why? Because the #1 reason Agile Transformations fail in large organizations is that they aren’t set up with the right underlying ecosystem for Agile to work within in the first place. .
Dashboard design can mean the difference between users excitedly embracing your product or ignoring it altogether.

Let’s face the reality, all the agile methodologies weren’t exactly created with distributed teams in mind. All the early agile teams were overwhelmingly co-located in offices, mainly because chat, video conferencing, and other technology that makes the remote work possible were highly laughable and ancient at that time. Ever since the pandemic, so many […].

One of the clichés about Scrum is that it is “easy to understand but difficult to master” The first part of that is obvious with the Scrum Guide is only eleven pages (if you don’t count the title page, purpose and table of contents). There are three roles, three outputs and four events (five if you include sprints as an event but I prefer not to as the whole idea of events within events makes me nauseous).

By Susanne Madsen. I often run project management training sessions and workshops for people who manage projects. Many of them aren’t career project managers and don’t even have the words project manager in their title. They are hired into an operations or business function and one of the many roles they have is to run projects in parallel with their BAU work.

TL; DR: Scrum Master Anti-Patterns. No other role in Scrum can contribute to mediocre outcomes like the Product Owner—garbage in, garbage out.

If you recognize some anti-patterns in your daily work, why don’t you ask the rest of the Scrum Team for support?

A project manager’s role is broad. You have to be comfortable briefing executives while also feeling at home digging into the details of a problem with the team. You need to concurrently write high-level summaries and dive into complex reports to keep projects on track. I’ll be honest, the expectations of the role have broadened since I became a project manager.

Many large-scale Agile Transformations are struggling. Some have failed. Others can’t figure out why things aren’t working after multiple attempts. It’s easy to blame the people, the process, and the culture. It’s especially easy to blame management. However, the underlying problem is that most large organizations weren’t built to be Agile. Organizational Barriers to Agile.

Projects need approval before they can be executed. A project charter is a project planning document that sells the project to stakeholders and sponsors. If you’re able to show its viability and return on investment, the work will get the green light to move forward. But there are a lot of elements to any successful project charter. If you’re new to project management , a project charter template can set you up to make sure you’re hitting all the major points.

There’s no denying that project management today looks different to how it did even 5 years ago. Project management trends shape our profession. We see technology evolving, new tools, consolidation, innovation and more. Trends come and go, or they stay with us and evolve into new ways of working that stick around and become “the way we do things around here.”.

This applies to our entire global staff of 140, with no compressed hours and no change in salary. . As a concept, the 5-day work week is rather outdated. It’s been the ‘norm’ for a century and hasn’t been questioned since. .

If you ever find yourself wanting to inject some energy into a cross-functional gathering of delivery staff and stakeholders, ask for their opinion on estimates. For every person who adamantly insists that estimates are needed to support proper governance, someone else will argue that the inherent wrongness of an estimate and how estimates are abused will wipe out any benefits of defining them.
