To change is to live - Are you a fixed reality or a living possibility?

By the time you finish reading this sentence, thousands of cells in your body will die and thousands of new ones will be created. Everything in this world is constantly changing and interacting with each other. 

Responding and adapting to this constant change are the essential qualities of a living being. Naturally, this is also the reason of success in managing projects, leading teams and taking other sorts of responsibilities. 

Our minds, though, have a tendency to stick to something known and comfortable, thus making us less open to new possibilities. We will look into what is the mechanism behind this and what tools we can use to overcome it.

The PMO’s role in a Multimodal World

For over a decade now we have been told that ‘Waterfall’ is a clunky, dated approach that is not focused on value while ‘Agile’ is the solution to all our problems. This has left PMOs struggling with how to reconcile these two, seemingly opposite, ways of working and how to stay relevant in predominantly Agile environments.

In this talk, Ray will be uncovering the origin of this bimodal thinking and examining how well it reflects the reality of transformational work in the 21st century. 

Ray will be drawing on his experience of working with traditional, agile and hybrid environments to look at some of the challenges and implications of organisations moving to a ‘multimodal’ model. He will also then look at some practical suggestions PMOs can take to right-size governance and ensure the right approach for the right project.

Topic: Choosing a Lifecycle That is Right for Your Context: A Disciplined Agile Strategy

PMI’s Disciplined Agile (DA) toolkit provides straightforward guidance to help teams and organizations choose their way of working (WoW) in a context-sensitive manner, providing a solid foundation for business agility.  An important choice that teams need to make is the lifecycle that they will follow.  Where an Agile Framework will prescribe a single lifecycle, the DA tool kit guides you through choosing the right one for your team given the situation that it faces.

Let’s Rethink Our Role as Project Managers

Are we schedule-creators, task-drivers, and scope and budget controllers?  Sure…but that is a sliver of what we do.  In addition to thinking about HOW we deliver all those things in the context of waterfall versus agile versus some hybrid, we also need to think about WHAT we do in terms of broadening the meaning of project management to include business consultant, change agent, product manager (for a time), and overall ‘glue’ between IT and the business.  And we need to think about WHY.  For some of us, the project alone is our motivation.  We want to deliver quality and scope within a certain timeline and budget.  But for others, project management can be an excellent springboard to other things.  In this presentation, I will explore not only the roles the project manager can play, but also why these roles position us as the leaders of the future.
