    About the Event

    Are you running into issues using Agile methods on your project? Do people argue over who should attend which meetings? Do you have unanswered questions about how Project Managers fit into the Agile World?

    This meetup is for people who have discovered the path to agile methods is not the easy street that was promised. We will learn from other project leaders which issues are common, and which are unique to your context. Futhermore, we’ll collect from each other several ideas for how to overcome those issues.

    Unlike other meet-ups, this is not a lecture. Instead, our facilitator will create an interactive exchange of which issues are bothering you, and which tips have worked for others. Please come to learn, share and experience conversations that will yield actionable tips for common issues with Agile methods.

  • Presidential Debate on Large Scale Agile Methods

    -

    About the Event

    Does your project feel "too big" for Agile? The experts tell us that agile methods focus on small teams producing small increments, how can we ever use that for larger initiatives? If the ideal team size is 7 people, and my program is even just 70 people, then do I have 10 teams with 10 Product Owners and 10 ScrumMasters? How do I agile that?

    In the spirit of the current election season, we will explore this topic as a moderated debate among the most popular large-scale agile approaches:

  • Strategies for Improving Performance

    -

    About the Event

    The pressure to deliver more projects, faster with fewer resources persists. In spite of gains made from Agile methodologies and other advances in project management, project leaders and teams are being driven to accelerate projects, achieve aggressive launch schedules, and include more and more functionality to meet business objectives. Working alongside Agile methodologies there are a number of strategies that have proven highly effective in accelerating timelines and increasing team output.

    This talk will share four techniques that can be employed along with Agile processes to expose hidden capacity and achieve timeline gains:

  • Agile War Stories: Practical Tips From the Trenches

    -

    Chris Li will be sharing a number of real-world experiences related to agile implementations, including specific areas such as hiring practices, organizational issues, teams made up of multiple companies, transformation within the government space, scaling up to a 200+ person agile program, and some sprint activity-specific topics.  These “War Stories” aren’t based in theory and provide some insight into the problems that teams face on a regular basis in their attempts to embrace the agile mindset.

  • Agile ITIL: Applying Scrum Concepts to Service Improvement Projects

    -

    Think Scrum is only for software development? Think again! While Scrum is most often applied to software development, this workshop will explore how Scrum concepts can be applied to ITIL-based service and process improvement efforts. At the very heart of the ITIL framework is a focus on design, development, deployment, support, and ongoing improvement of IT services based on business needs. This workshop will show how the addition of Agile concepts can enhance the quality and consistency in delivering IT services to customers.

  • The Agile Team Facilitation Stance

    -

    Collaboration is a core value in agile teams – most every agile practice requires some level of collaboration within or between teams. Over time team dysfunctions can emerge that reduce the team’s ability to collaborate effectively. Facilitation is a core skill for Agile Coaches - your teams need Facilitators who can facilitate agile practices, foster effective collaboration, support meaningful dialogues and enable team decision-making.

    In this interactive session we’ll explore the stance and skills of an Agile Team Facilitator and learn techniques for facilitating agile teams. Come prepared with your own experiences and questions - ready to share and learn from others.

    The Agile Team Facilitation Stance

  • Project Manager Role in Agile

    -

    While we, as project managers, may know how to manage, plan and estimate in an assembly line like culture, how can we estimate confidently for a process that is circular, dynamic and emerging? How can we promise the delivery of value to our customers by set dates and allow change, discovery, and innovation to happen? Is Agile the answer to all these questions?

  • The Agile PMO – From Process Police to Adaptive Governance

    -

    Although success stories from individual agile teams abound, agile adoptions often run into significant challenges when companies attempt to scale beyond one or a few teams on a single project or multiple projects. The role of middle management in agile, especially the Project Management Office (PMO), remains poorly defined. PMO managers often are seen as focusing more on process compliance than on business results. However, in the long run, agile cannot succeed without middle management's support and leadership.

  • Agile at OPM: The USAJOBS Product Owner's Perspective

    -

  • Agile Reality: Promises, Myths of Agile Methods

    -

    The boss has told us to go agile, but does that really mean do more with less? Do we have to replace managers with more senior technical people, and pull everyone into the same room? In this interactive session, you will weed through the false promises and the knee jerk reactions related to agile methods. Walk away with an understanding of what will and won't work for your organization, and what you can start using right away.

  • Big Agile: It’s Not Just for Small Projects Anymore

    -

    We've always understood that Agile methods are best suited for small projects. Yet strangely, over the last several years, Fortune 500 companies and government agencies are using Agile PM, and using it for increasingly larger projects and programs. But how does self-organization work for 500 people? How can you possibly run an IT program without any documentation or architecture? In this illuminating talk, PMI Agile leader Jesse Fewell will share both recent trends as well as actionable tips & techniques for growing out of small Agile to big Agile.
