10 agile experts to follow - asg (lr)

This is a select list of agile project management thought leaders and influencers on Twitter. We started with over 200 prominent accounts and we got it down to the top 10. We're transparent about the criteria for making this list, so here's how we did it. To qualify, Twitter accounts were required to meet all of the following characteristics:

  • account is for a person or a professional association,
  • account is 3 or more years old,
  • account is active (1 or more tweets in the last 30 days),
  • 1,000 or more tweets,
  • 7,000 or more followers, and
  • 90% or more of tweets have engagement (e.g., likes and retweets).

The list is sorted by engagement level, presented in descending order. In cases where multiple accounts have the same engagement level, the number of followers breaks the tie. Data source: Twitter. Data is as of September 9, 2020. Disclosure: Scott M. Graffius is the author of
Agile Scrum: Your Quick Start Guide with Step-by-Step Instructions. Source of screen shot images: respective Twitter accounts. Names, marks, and images are the property of their respective owners. Here are the top 10 accounts meeting all of the criteria described above.

Agile Project Management Influencer Scott M. Graffius to Speak at CIE Chaper of Project Management Institute

10 ways to score project proposals vg2-2b (sf font) (LR)


Agile project management expert, author, and influencer Scott M. Graffius will present “10 Ways to Score and Prioritize Project Proposals Based on Multiple Factors, Including Strategic Alignment” at a virtual event of the California Inland Empire Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMICIE). The session will occur on Tuesday, February 9, 2021. It will be Scott's third talk at the PMICIE. The event is open to everyone (PMICIE membership is not required). For more information and to register, visit here.

Description of Talk

How does your organization assess proposals for new projects? Is there a well-defined scoring and prioritization process — based on alignment with the business’ strategic objectives and other factors — to quickly and easily identify the objective value of each proposal (including how important it is relative to other initiatives)? If the answer is “no,” keep reading. If the answer is “yes,” you are likely to find practical information and examples in this talk to adapt and adopt to improve the process at your organization.

How You Will Benefit (Key Learning Objectives)

This talk will help you develop and enhance the contributions you make to your organization by being able to:

  • Understand the benefits of scoring and prioritizing project proposals based on strategic alignment and other factors.
  • Identify selection and prioritization criteria appropriate for your unique organization, leveraging the flexible framework and some or all of the 10 factors presented during the talk.
  • Put the practical, actionable information presented to use. During the session, we will run an example project proposal through the process, step-by-step. You will receive a summary “cheat sheet” that you can reference as a guide to help implement or improve this process at your organization.

Audience

This session is designed to be of value to project, program, and portfolio managers; project, program, and portfolio management office staff; Center of Excellence staff; Scrum Masters, Product Owners, agile coaches, and other agile practitioners and staff; executives making decisions about organization strategy; functional managers; researchers; customers; and additional stakeholders.

References

The talk draws on the speaker’s first-hand experience, with his guidance supported by related standards, best practices, and recommendations from the Project Management Institute, IEEE, MIT, Harvard Business Review, Scrum Alliance, Deloitte, and others.
