RefineM CEO Featured in PM Podcast: Top Five Warning Signs That Agile Isn’t Working For You
RefineM CEO and Lead Instructor NK Shrivastava was featured in Episode 382 of Cornelius Fichtner’s Project Management Podcast™. Recorded during the Project Management Institute (PMI)® Global Congress 2016 in San Diego, California, Shrivastava discusses in the interview the Top 5 Warning Signs That Agile Isn’t Working for You, a topic he presented at the conference and inspired by his white paper of the same name.
The Top 5 Warning Signs That Agile Isn’t Working For You provide a helpful discussion for project managers and establish a foundation they can use to determine which strategies and practices are not working within their agile projects and teams. According to the interview and white paper, the five warning signs include the following: 1) no signs of value delivery for more than 3 months, 2) teams resisting customer changes, 3) teams “waterfalling” sprints, (4) customers foregoing involvement in development and testing, and (5) lack of visibility for agile in the organization.
Regarding the opportunity to speak with Cornelius Fichtner on this important topic at the PMI® Global Congress, Shrivastava stated, “Participating in a podcast for my speaking topic at PMI® Global Congress was a great experience. I think it is an excellent way to reach out to more project management professionals who listen to the Project Management Podcast™.”
