Within agile project teams, the role of a PM often changes dramatically from the traditional model of ownership and accountabilities that many practitioners are accustomed to.
In traditional project management, accountability for entire delivery lifecycle is the norm and the PM is accountable for activities including documentation, scheduling, managing stakeholders, budgets, communications and change management, among others.
What about the role of a PM on an agile project or team? With the release of the PMBoK 6, PMI has also released the Agile Practice Guide for Project Managers.
In this workshop, following a brief overview of the new Agile Practice Guide, we will break into groups to share our experiences with the transition to agile project delivery teams as well as our successful strategies for integrating other leaders into our delivery frameworks.
Come ready to meet new people, share your experiences, ask questions and learn more about our evolving role as Project Managers!
