Samotność w Wielkiej Technologii – wywiad z Natalią Hatalską

Kornelia Trzęsowska

20-11-2021

Strefa PMI nr 35, Listopad 2021

Wywiad z Natalią Hatalską o tym, dokąd zmierza dziś cyfrowy świat? Rozmawia Kornelia Trzęsowska. Czym jest dla Pani zmiana? Zmiana jest częścią mojego życia. Jeśli zapytałaby Pani osoby z mojego zespołu, jaka jest specyfika naszej współpracy, podejrzewam, że pierwszą rzeczą, którą by wymieniły, byłoby to, że różne rzeczy bardzo często się zmieniają. Jestem osobą, która nie ma w sobie strachu przed zmianą. Zdarzają się czasem sytuacje, kiedy na tydzień przed wypuszczeniem projektu w świat, wywracam go o 180 stopni. Robię to jednak tylko wtedy, kiedy mam przekonanie, że dobrze wpłynie to na projekt.

Agile misconceptions. No documentation, no processes, no plans – is that Agile?

Monika Zofia Potiopa

05-11-2021

Strefa PMI nr 27, listopad 2019

Interview with Thomas Zimmermann by Monika Zofia Potiopa There are still many misconceptions about Agile, such as it meaning no documentation, no processes or no plans. What steps do you think we can take to eliminate these misconceptions? At the end of the day, if you talk about Agile and particularly Scrum, you of course have documentation. Consider a list of user stories, which is essentially another way of doc¬umenting what you want to do. It is a comon misconception to say that there is no specification. Correct – there is no specification in the form of a traditional document. Instead the same content is represented in a different, but much more effective way, i.e. as a prioritized list of user stories.

The Joy of Being Project Manager – How to be Lucky in the PM World? – conversation with Marisa Silva

Aneta Catalan Sikorska

16-09-2021

Strefa PMI nr 34, Wrzesień 2021

A conversation with Marisa Silva – the Lucky PM, passionate and intrigued by projects. The interview has been conducted by Aneta Catalan Sikorska. I cannot start with the other questions until I ask about “The Lucky PM”. Is there any story behind it? Because when you talk about the PM world, I can see how much you enjoy it. But maybe “Lucky” doesn’t only mean that you love what you do, maybe you are lucky because you still improve the PM/PMO world. Thank you, first of all, for such kind words. I do try to share my passion and leave my mark in the community at least! Not really a story but there are three main reasons for my luckiness. First, I think that chance or luck plays such an important role in what happens in our life and projects, even if we prefer to ignore it. Sometimes it’s just a matter of being in the right place at the right time and I think that, although talent is fundamental, we need to acknowledge fortunate accidents too. Second, there’s this saying that goes as “there are no good project managers, only lucky ones: the more you plan, the luckier you get”, which I fully agree with because luck also requires hard work and preparation. Finally, because I’ve been very lucky to grown and learn with amazing colleagues, clients, organizations, and project teams. And, of course, I call myself “The Lucky Project Manager” because “The Lazy Project Manager” was already taken!

Re.vers.ify Organizations with Scrum – interview with Gunther Verheyen

Paulina Szczepaniak

04-09-2021

Strefa PMI nr 17, czerwiec 2017

An interview with Gunther Verheyen by Paulina Szczepaniak You are a renowned international agile expert, with particular expertise in Scrum. Why do you think this framework became so popular? Probably because of the growing need of what I like to call “agility”, meaning flexibil¬ity, responsiveness, and not just from an IT perspective. IT is where agile sort of emerged from, but companies have to survive and thrive in very turbulent markets, a lot of business changes, market competition, but also internal changes, stakeholders and so on. And the way that organizations are struc¬tured and therefore how they organize their IT work and their software development, because that follows from the way they are structured, is just not fit for the agility re¬quired today to thrive and prosper. Structures are very rigid, very fixed, and need to become more dynamic.

Pirate of Innovation – interview with Tendayi Viki

Kornelia Trzęsowska

12-08-2021

Strefa PMI nr 33, Czerwiec 2021

An interview with Tendayi Viki by Kornelia Trzęsowska Do you agree with Steve Jobs that it’s more fun to be a pirate than to join a navy? You refer to his words in the title of your newest book. I don’t think it’s more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy. Pirates are often in danger of dying. Steve Jobs was talking about how startups are faster than already set up companies – they move quicker than any large company. But what we’re learning these days is that large companies often become innovative, maybe surprisingly. The cool thing about large companies is that they have something that startups don’t have – they already have a brand, access to markets, customers, vast resources and other assets. Sometimes startups are really small and they need to find all these things by themselves. As long as large companies create the right environment for innovation, I really believe that it’s better to be a pirate in the navy than to be a pirate outside the navy, because you have a greater chance of success.

Data Science z bliska – wywiad z Marią Parysz

Dominika Kantorowicz

09-02-2021

Strefa PMI nr 31, Listopad 2020

Z Marią Parysz, CEO firmy LogicAI, rozmawia Dominika Kantorowicz. Projekty AI stawiają przed Project Mana­gerami sporo nowych wyzwań i trzeba przy­znać, że są inne. Główna różnica polega na podejściu do zarządzania czasem – projekty AI bazują najczęściej na eksperymentach i trudno określić jaki dokładny wynik przy­niesie seria wykonanych testów w usta­lonym czasie. Klienci najczęściej oczekują, że algorytm przyniesie skuteczność na poziomie 99%, co jest mało realne przy pierwszym wdrożeniu. Dlatego wymaga­na jest praca w krótkich sprintach oraz jak najszybsze wdrożenie rozwiązania na pro­dukcję, zgodnie z podejściem Lean Startup.
