BRT Helsinki: A Thousand Tools for Managing Agile Projects – How to Pick the Right One?

It is widely recognized that adopting a more lean/agile approach to both product and business development is key for surviving and thriving in today’s competitive landscape. But for all but the smallest organizations, “going lean” is way easier said than done.

portfoliomgmt on different levels

Studies have found that once an organization is ready to transform, a key obstacle still lies in traditional management tools that are designed to support a plan-driven management model. And while there nowadays are hundreds of alternatives that claim to support an agile approach, how is one to make a choice – especially when every vendor claims that their solution is the most intuitive one out there.

In this talk, Dr. Jarno Vähäniitty walks you through the historical development of modern development processes, from 1950’s to the present day, and based on this explains which properties of a lean/agile work management tool are essential to look for when making a choice for your organization.

Jarno is one of Finland’s leading experts on agile and traditional development methodologies and tools. He has a Ph.D. from Aalto University where he spent 14 years studying agile development and how to connect it with product, project and portfolio management, as well as leading the initial development of Agilefant as an open source project. Jarno has published tens of articles in international journals and conferences. Since 2014, Jarno, a co-founder of Agilefant Ltd., is driving the change with their biggest clients and explores the expanding landscape of working lean and agile.

Doors open at 8:00, light breakfast is served. The talk starts at 8:30. Attending this event gets you 1.5 PDU. It will be possible to the attend event remotely.
