The Project Manager as Agile Transformation Leader: Project Management for What's Next with Drew Clark
What You Will Learn
Upon completion of this training, learners will be able to:
- Recognize new trends as organizations move from external to internal agile enablers.
- Evaluate the need for an ACoE within the PMO to sustain change.
- Demonstrate how to enable their organizations toward balanced agility.
Embracing agile is no longer optional, be it in IT or beyond. Empowered agile value stream teams don’t benefit from task-based Gantt charts. They need lean leadership. They need you to mentor and enable them on their relentless pursuit to deliver more business value faster and at a lower cost. Patterns of failing agile implementations can be spotted easily: Project managers in scrum master roles, projects being translated to epics and stories, and a project management office (PMO) that passively watches the agile transformation train wreck in the making, just to name a few. It is time for you to lead!
Based on over 200 lean-agile initiatives in the real world, guided by the instructor, this training enables project managers to take the leadership role to help their organizations succeed on their journey toward balanced agility. From the formation, training, coaching, and mentoring of value stream teams and the removal of barriers between the business, product, project, and engineering domains, this training provides project management skills for what’s next.
Organizations are looking for leaders who can enable agile across the enterprise. Break free from the misconception that agile is only a change in process or that project management in an agile environment is business as usual. It is not. Becoming agile is a fundamental shift of how your organization does business, and it changes every project management domain, from procurement to human resource operations.
Help your company succeed and join us in this training that challenges the status quo and even agile itself. Upgrade your agile capabilities and learn step by step how you can help your organization transform by implementing agile centers of excellence (ACoEs) equipped with internal agile mentoring, coaching, and transformation skills that can no longer be “outsourced” to sustain change.
Excellent content and motivated me to get valuable information from the training that I will use professionally. Drew was also very professional, knowledgeable, and an excellent instructor.

Game changer! Not only did the training break down the industry’s attempt to market agile methodologies in so many different jargons and processes, but it also called out what they have in common at its core. This allowed me to be comfortable to face any “agile guru” using the universal concepts to return to my employer and implement what has been learned.
