    Topic Description:

    Recent events in the Oil, Gas, and Mining industries have significantly affected the way the world views transactions, including the definition of a successful deal.

    Previously, the definitions were limited to the target asset’s strategic fit and the deal price, with a minimal appreciation for the integration and/or separation activities and the need to fully define post-transaction activities optimizer.

    This presentation assesses an evolving understanding of transactions project success over the past several years and discusses criteria for success, critical success factors and key learnings during the pre-development stages of a major investment or project. The presentation concludes with a Call to Duty for Project Management Practitioners to consider opportunities in Transactions Project Management, irrespective of the industry environment, even if just to have it as a viable option in a downturn.

    This is also an important topic because of the high volumes of inorganic growth across industries today, and projects are an increasingly common platform for catalyzing this. The success of individual transaction projects, therefore, impacts the wider organization in several dimensions and makes the concept of transactions project success very significant. The topic is also important because it lends itself to the undeniable fact that project management is every business’ strategy enabler and thus, Project Management Practitioners should PLAY more in this SPACE!

    Topic Description:

    Agile transformations typically fail to deliver true business agility because organizational power structures, norms, and culture remain locked into legacy models that oppose Agile. Similarly, companies fail because their organizations remain tuned to their traditional markets, even as disruption creates new dangers and innovation new opportunities. The failure to change hidebound bureaucracy and rigid organization structures leads to eventual disruption, and often dissolution.

    Agile methods can serve as a foundation for organizational “sparks” that are adaptable and resilient in the face of disruption and relentless change. Those looking to leverage investment in Agile as a business differentiator must heed Conway’s Rule, and adapt organizational elements to support and enable true business agility. Join Sanjiv to explore essential organizational sparks for business agility, including Lean Discovery, Agile PMO, Agile Budgeting, Dynamic Strategy, and Portfolio Kanban.
