Transformation appears to be a top-agenda item for the C-level. Project managers may find it tempting to opt in to a project management role in the transformation, but before saying “yes,” they should understand how the transformation team is structured, how talents are acquired, what skill sets are needed, and what key considerations to look for.

The Agile Enterprise is a new type of organization. A collaboration-based environment where some of the ‘command and control’ roles are not only obsolete but also can be a roadblock for the Agile transformation. The natural fear of change combined with protecting privileges or the job itself resulted in labelling as ‘Agile’ roles that are not only not defined in any Agile framework but are also the core components of the “waterfall” approach. An “Agile” PM that manages an “Agile” project team where the “Agile” BA writes requirements (called now user stories) and then the “Agile” UX specialist designs the user interface and then the “Agile” Architect analyse the “User Story” and assigns it to the “Agile” Developer who will pass the “increment” to the “Agile” Tester (sometimes wrongly called “Agile” QA engineer) is not an uncommon “Agile” implementation. Agile is a new and better way of building products, a radically new approach with a single role responsible for the design, build (including testing) and deployment called “Developer” and one person responsible for requirements definition and prioritisation called “Product Owner”. This webinar addresses what a real Agile Team should be with real world examples of Agile teams.

Participants will gain a framework for determining an allowable level of scope creep and assessing the impact on resources and interests. Additionally, participants will learn how to chart a client engagement path that develops clients into better project stewards.

The Intelligence Community (IC) is an enormous, departmentally diverse community in numerous agencies, and covers a large range of individual intelligence efforts. Both law enforcement and the military rely on and make up part of the IC. Though the efforts are continuous and cyclical, there are numerous one-time activities that are not replicable, and are designed to answer specific questions for policy makers and other consumers of intelligence. The sum effect of an IC PMO may prove invaluable when trying to improve the efficiency and accuracy of the IC.
