Is project management keeping work siloed? | theHRD

Is project management keeping work siloed? | theHRD | Articles for project management and agile project management | Scoop.it
One of the biggest questions keeping business leaders up right now is whether they should be preparing their staff to return to the office next year or simply embrace remote work long term. But that is the wrong question to ask about the future of work. It’s not where we work that’s critical, it’s how we work. Enterprises need to consider how they can holistically manage the outcome of work, wherever their people are.

Fit-for-Purpose Agility: There Is No “One True Agile”

Fit-for-Purpose Agility: There Is No “One True Agile” | Articles for project management and agile project management | Scoop.it
Agile proponents need to recognize that agility itself is materially different when applied in different environments and that while the core practices and values are fairly portable, the way that they fit together ends up being remarkably different. The best agility is one that is “fit for purpose.” That purpose is defined by the strategy of the business unit or company, or even by the behaviors of the market category into which the company is selling. Positioning and posturing about which is more important or “the right thing” fails to serve the community at large and actively misleads companies attempting to improve. There is little doubt that agility and its various outcomes will be absolutely necessary for companies that want to be successful in the future.
