PMI Nashville August 2017 luncheon – Topic: Pragmatic Agile Transformation patterns

August 15 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Event DescriptionPragmatic Agile Transformation patterns

  • This presentation will either make you laugh, cry, or make your blood boil. Either way, I am confident you will learn something new and find the motivation to question your very own status-quo as it is related to lean and agile.Highlights: Let’s build an airplane engine the agile way: Why processes must fit the project and not the other way around. Balancing agility and predictability: Why many agile teams deliver the wrong things faster than ever. Increasing ROI on everything we do: Why companies know the cost of everything; and the value of nothing. Agile Value Management applied to hardware. Agile Project Management: Why projects are NOT epics. Agile Roles & Responsibilities: Why Project Managers are NOT ScrumMasters. Beyond Agile: What’s next.
  • Objectives
    • Identify the best process for projects.
    • Describe the difference between projects and epics.
    • Define hybrid approach to projects.
    • Identify the difference between the role of a project manager versus the role of a ScrumMaster.
