Applying Prosocial Tools to Agile Teams
Quality Engineer at Universal Instruments
Much of Agile is about teamwork. We care more about the team's output as opposed to any individuals. We need every team member to be a leader, to be accountable, and to work together. But how do we get group members to be more prosocial (as opposed to anti-social)? Nobel Prize winner Elinor Ostrom and SUNY Distinguished Prof. David Sloan Wilson came together to join the concepts of common-pool resources and multi-level selection to start what is now called “Prosocial”. Since then, many other academics and practitioners have come on board in its development, particularly psychologists working in Contextual Behavioral Science. This talk will overview the theoretical basis for prosocial and we will look at some of the plethora of Agile tools to see how Prosocial might help us select the right Agile tool for our teamwork need. We will model some of the exercises.

PMI Hardship Provision
To our valued PMI Binghamton members, we are sharing the following note from PMI about the PMI Hardship Provision:
In these current economic times, we recognize that some of our members will find themselves in changed financial circumstances. To that end, PMI would like to remind members about its hardship provision that is available to qualifying members in good standing.
PMI’s hardship provision is available to any member who becomes unemployed. In order to qualify, a member must be in good standing and must have paid dues for at least three previous continuous years. Under this provision, a member is granted a waiver for one year of PMI membership dues and one year of dues for membership in any one chapter of which the applicant was a member the previous year. The hardship provision may be granted for a maximum of two years for each member.
Details about this program are located on the back of the renewal invoice. To apply for a hardship provision, please send an e-mail and explain the nature of your hardship. Please be sure to include a copy of your renewal invoice (if possible). We encourage members to renew their membership dues prior to their expiration date. If a member’s membership has expired for more than 10 months, we would not be able to renew their membership under the Hardship Provision.
Please remember that any incorrect or untrue statements made by a member are in violation of the Project Management Institute Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and may lead to the initiation of an ethics complaint.
If you have questions or need further assistance, please feel free to contact us.
