Power Skills

WMPMI's monthly virtual breakfast time meeting is a one-PDU event featuring you and other attendees discussing topics from the PMI Talent Triangle. 

Agile Transformations and the Project Manager Response

Today, one can argue that nearly every organization in existence is a "software" organization. This truth requires a shift in the way organizations conduct business and get work done. To stay competitive in this "Software Age", organizations are undertaking digital and agile transformations, and adopting new ways of working via SAFe, LeSS, and others. These models have new roles and agile processes, some seemingly leaving the traditonal project management personnel and processes behind. So what do we as Project Managers do?? This talk will explore the "why" behind these transformations, offer real lessons learned from one (Paul) who has now experienced two organizations undertaking transformations, and finally, provide suggestions on how PMs (or anyone for that matter) can THRIVE when transformation hits their organization.
