PMI® Organizational Agility Conference 2019

September 12, 2019 | Online

The PMI® Organizational Agility Conference returns bigger and better than ever as we examine Evolving Approaches to Resilient Value Delivery!

Older concepts of change management proposed that organizations freeze in their current state, transform and then come out into a new state of being. In today’s VUCA world (one filled with volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity), organizations do not have the luxury to stand still while they change. And in some organizations and industries, the “new state of being” may last only a couple of years. 

To remain relevant in the VUCA world, organizations and delivery professionals need to build change resilience—the ability to remain in a state of change while delivering value. This virtual conference will explore the concept of change resilience with professionals who are driving it within their organizations—and those who are living it as part of their own development.

As a delivery professional, you may need to throw away your methodology-oriented mindset and replace it with a different framework—use what works. In this session, Mike breaks down the silos of waterfall, hybrid and agile and replaces it with a tailoring construct so that project professionals evaluate the best approach for delivering value.

When it comes to organizational agility, we need collaboration at all levels, management excellence, and technical excellence. This session will explore what that looks like for an organization that uses projects as work containers, not as a project orientation. Projects should be seen as helpful for managing the work for now--and not doing more than we need.
