The Project Manager as Agile Transformation Leader: Project Management for What's Next
Working with agile teams, you already know that agile is not about simply managing projects differently. You discovered that becoming agile is not possible by maintaining the status-quo or within an organizational structure from an era long bygone. Agile value stream teams that persist beyond project boundaries require an entirely different corporate model.
As an agile practitioner, you are also well aware that your agile transformation is one of the most challenging and demanding changes ever undertaken. Scrum is easy. Enterprise agility is complex, and success is the exception, not the norm.
Let’s face it, becoming agile is a fundamental shift of how organizations conduct business be it in IT or beyond. From procurement to human resource management and from time to scope management, agile changes everything. It even challenges the notion of a project as organizations move towards product and value stream centric operational models to deliver more with less.
Take a step back and question everything including project managers in ScrumMaster roles, projects as epics translated into user stories, teams that do not commit beyond the next iteration, and many other practices suggested by agile purists who evidently live in a fantasy world. Drop the Gantt-Charts for two days and join us in defining the future of project management for what’s next. Learn advanced and pragmatic agile practices that you can use right away.
