Governance Forum (Virtual) - 200527

"Governance in an Agile Environment"
presented by Joe Sisto, Director, IT PMO           

The Governance Forum provides value to the PMI Atlanta community by offering participants:

Discussion of field-tested best practices, Decisions frameworks to assess culture and apply optimal strategy, Key takeaways to “take to work tomorrow” to maximize realization of value through introduction and standardization of best practices in the oversight and execution of projects, programs, and portfolios.


Scaled Agile (SAFe 5) 5 is presented as an approach towards large scale mature agile governance.   However, when an organization lacks the resources and maturity to implement SAfe 5, then another, more simplified approach is presented, using coaching, the capability maturity model and dashboards.  Examples will be shown.

During the session, the topic will be opened up for discussion to provide feedback on other models people have seen work, and how perhaps SAFe is being implemented in the organization. We expect this to be lively as we use some Agile practices to vote on what works and what does not!
