Who Shifted My Paradigm? Re-thinking your role in an age of agile
Project Managers can evolve into agile leaders. However, there are aspects of agile that contradict what we have learned as Project Managers. To be successful with this new way of working, one needs to question what was previously accepted to be true.
Grasping agile practices is easy. However, truly understanding the fundamental differences between agile approaches and project management methodologies requires compassion, time, study and an open mind.
This talk goes beyond the practices of frameworks such as Scrum and Kanban. We will consider some of the fundamental differences between traditional project management and agile approaches. We will explore the shifts from:
- Methodology to Mindset
- Command & Control to Build, Support and Learn
- Best Practice to Continuous Learning
- Capacity to Flow
- Outputs to Outcomes
- Push to Pull
- Release Management to DevOps and CI/CD
We will explore strategies for making the transition if you choose to consider a change to your career.
