What happens when you get Agilists together to build an organization within one of the most ill-reputed bureaucracies in the world?
When the Project Management Institute chartered the PMI Agile Forum, it was a huge announcement. However, now the team had to deliver a fully functioning organization to support the Agile-minded members within PMI’s membership…and do so on schedule and under budget. How do we build a business plan? How do we execute a marketing effort? How do we plan a launch event? Come see how this all-volunteer distributed virtual team extended PMI’s reach using Agile.
Project Managers comprise the single largest category of agile practitioners that are actively engaged in the industry (18%). However, there is no clear consensus on the role of project manager within the Agile community. Viewpoints range from: • The PM is complete waste. • The PM is a necessary part-time helper. • The PM is a crucial communicator and facilitator.
So who’s right? This interactive session will seek to address these questions about who is good, who is bad, why they are, and who says so.
