True that the coronavirus has impacted the global population on a large scale with many losses happening across business lines. Governments and People are showing resilience to the challenge that nature has thrown upon us. Humanity has bounced back from far great miseries in its history, and I am sure we will overcome this too in the coming weeks.

Once again, history repeats itself: the recent outbreak of coronavirus has caused a significant impact on the big corporate powerhouses and the daily life of ordinary citizens. Humanity has bounced back from far great miseries in its history, and I am sure we will overcome this too in the coming weeks. The plans made by the government and resilience shown by the citizens instill courage for a better future.

Meanwhile, amidst all this duress, Mother Nature is as such that it will continue to do its work of surprising us in its way. Some professionals are also similar to Mother Nature in that manner. Aspirants of PfMP® have amazed me with their large numbers and success over the past three months. In this period between Dec 23, 2019, to Mar 16, 2020, a total of 32 professionals have successfully cleared their PfMP® certification exams. Congratulations to all the 32 professionals.

Our PgMP® Success Stories | February 2020

My first direct PgMP® and PfMP® boot camps in Saudi Arabia were highly successful. This success and also based on multiple requests from aspirants in Saudi has made me schedule new direct training programs in Riyadh (http://bit.ly/38LWJMX & http://bit.ly/2P9Izh4) and Al- Khobar (http://bit.ly/2T2ykvN) for March 2020. Hoping to see more successful PgMP®s and PfMP®s from Saudi Arabia by the end of 2020 that have been aided by vCare’s guidance.

Program Manager’s Dilemma : Agile vs Waterfall

Program Manager’s Dilemma : Agile vs Waterfall

Before we talk about the role of a Program Manager in the Waterfall or an agile environment, let us understand what these methodologies are,

Waterfall: Waterfall is a traditional methodology that focuses on completing the project in a linear format. The project requirements and plans are pre-defined during the planning phase. In waterfall methodology, the project is broken down into smaller tasks where each task depends on the completion of the previous job before proceeding further. Waterfall methodology is considered easy to manage due to its pre-defined processes.

Agile | Program Manager | Program Management Certifications | Program Management Training | PgMP | SAFe | Certification | Waterfall

Agile: Agile methodologies include iterative processes, which focus on delivering the product in the shortest possible time. It is a flexible method designed to adapt to changes. Agile focuses on short-term plans of regular intervals rather than planning the whole project at the initiation stage. It prioritizes the work, depending on the customer’s essential requirements.

Agile | Program Manager | Program Management Certifications | Program Management Training | PgMP | SAFe | Certification | Waterfall

Program Management and the role of a Program Manager: Program aims at executing a group of components (i.e. projects, subprograms and other related activities) that are interdependent and has a common goal towards the output of the program. Program managers are responsible for leading those components towards a beneficial outcome. They initiate program governance to define the program management plan and monitor the signs of progress. They also adopt the usage of tools and techniques approved by the organization.

Agile | Program Manager | Program Management Certifications | Program Management Training | PgMP | SAFe | Certification | Waterfall

When considering Agile and Waterfall, Agile is more of a product-based, whereas Waterfall is more of a project-based. Agile focuses on delivering the product on a sprint basis, whereas Waterfall dispatches the deliverables only when the project is complete. Unlike other methodologies, Agile focuses on short term goals and are iterative. Waterfall has a clearly defined process where changes are incorporated when it is only required.

Agile | Program Manager | Program Management Certifications | Program Management Training | PgMP | SAFe | Certification | Waterfall

So considering these, Program manager makes the choice of methodology that best suit the nature of work required for accomplishing the program objective.

Now the question comes should the program manager opt for Agile or Scrum master certification or they should go for PgMP® (Program Management Professional). It depends on your role in the organization. Consider whether you are looking to manage an agile team or lead a group of projects or programs. If you were aspiring to promote yourself in the organization, it would be better for you to go for PgMP®.
