The Project Manager as Agile Transformation Leader: Project Management for What's Next with Karl Muenchow
DescriptionTopics: Leadership Development | Agile | Change Management | Leading Project Teams
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 at a lower cost. Patterns of failing agile implementations can be spotted easily: Project managers in ScrumMaster roles, Projects being translated to Epics and Stories, and a 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 hands-on by the instructor, this course enables project managers to take the leadership role, enabling their organizations to succeed on their journey towards balanced agility. From the formation of value stream teams, training, coaching and mentoring, these teams and the removal of barriers between the business, product, project and engineering domains, this course provides the skills in project management for what's next. Some might have convinced you that agile practices sprinkled into your waterfall governance, adding agile in front of your title, or using agile approaches within your existing plan and control structure is a feasible way forward as agile project manager. While convenient and promising, it does not reflect reality.
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 program that challenges the status-quo and even challenges agile itself. Upgrade your agile capabilities and learn step-by-step how you can help your organization transform by implementing ACoEs (Agile Centers of Excellence) equipped with internal agile mentoring, coaching, and transformation skills that can no longer be "outsourced" to sustain change.
