The Agile Forum meetings offer an opportunity for professional networking and knowledge sharing with other agile practitioners as well as provide a learning environment for professionals interested in learning about agile techniques. Everyone is welcome to participate.
Come learn from a real life example of a business unit’s journey from traditional software development and delivery toward agility within a fortune 500 company. In particular we will focus in on our Project Management Office and their specific transition from a traditional PMO to an Agile PMO. Transitioning from Waterfall toward agility is quite challenging in a large complex organization where things are often slow to move and frameworks are specifically designed to maintain consistency. This challenge is further exacerbated when much of our business partners inside the organization operate in Waterfall or traditional ways.
Things like staffing, Project Management skill sets, job descriptions and governance are all subject to and likely to change with such a move. Hear first-hand what we tried, what worked, how we failed and most importantly, what we have learned along the way in our journey.
