PMO CoP: Going Agile - Understanding Organizations & People


“We are going Agile.” This seems to be one of most heard and used phrases over the past couple of years. However, the move to Agile seems to be more of a fad without fully understanding the benefits of doing so.  In addition, do we understand the full impact of moving to Agile project delivery?

Well, surely you plan how to align your teams, but have you stopped to consider the effect of “change” on your colleagues?  While change is not an issue for some people, it is a huge and emotional deal for others!  We must look at team and organizational impacts that change may bring because you must consider the impact of change on multiple individuals.

This session will look at the personal and organizational aspects of moving to an agile framework. The intention is not to be able to solve all the challenges that change may bring, but rather bring awareness to parts that we may have never considered.

Learning Objectives and Outcomes:

Attendees will get a better understanding of the following:

  • Listening is just as important as talking
  • The importance of creating a rapport
  • Adapting project leadership styles around Agile
  • Agile is business, but changes have an emotional impact
  • Understand that not everyone will be convinced
