Agile Forum - 180417

"Part 2-The Journey Continues: Lessons Learned-Transitioning from a traditional toward an Agile PMO"
Presented by Mark Meyerhofer - Director of Organizational Excellence / Fiserv

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.                                                         

Presentation

By popular demand, we will continue on The Journey. We will delve into the “Lessons Learned -transitioning from a traditional toward an Agile PMO”. Hear first-hand what we tried, what worked, how we failed and most importantly, what we have learned along the way in our journey.

In Part I of The Journey, we shared the 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 focused on our Project Management Office and the specific transition from a traditional PMO to an Agile PMO. The transition from Waterfall toward agility can be 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.
