Agile (Virtual) Forum - 210216

"Project Management in Agile"
presented by Leon Sabarsky, Healthy Agile / CEO

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.            


The question comes up every time. In every Agile transformation that I’ve been involved with, it is always asked. What do we do with the project managers? We’re going Agile. Do we need them?

If you do any research on the topic, you’ll probably find that there is not much content on the topic. Almost as if it is a topic to be avoided. Given that, you could easily assume that there is no room for project management in Agile transformations. I propose that project management does have a role in Agile transformations.

In this interesting and informative session, you will learn practical ways in which project management can benefit Agile transformations and how project managers can add value to organizations transitioning to Agile.

Understand how project management can benefit Agile transformations
Understand how project managers can add value to organizations transitioning to Agile
Understand how to integrate project managers into Agile teams
Understand how to create job progressions for both project manager roles and Agile roles
Understand how project management can provide value at the program and portfolio levels
