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.
Software has fundamentally changed the way business works. It is the way we reach our customers, the way we operationalize policy, the way we create new capabilities to reach our goals. Every business is now—in some form—in the software business. And yet most of what we think of as “management” relies on industrial-age models.
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.
The new CEO of Australia and New Zealand Bank (ANZ) promised a customer-focused transformation when he took over the organization. Led from the top and enabled at all levels of the organization, Tony Maughan from ANZ will share the company’s story of adopting “new ways of working.”
To keep pace in today’s disruptive world, the Government of Canada is adopting new ways of thinking and working in key areas, including project management. It focuses on nimble processes that allow projects and initiatives to adjust and adapt to evolving needs and technologies and, a workforce that can put them into action. The Canada School of Public Service has a key role to play and is enhancing its project management learning to help meet these needs.
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.
As project lead, how do you deliver in an agile fashion when the customer teams you lead struggle with this delivery model?
"More than any time in history mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness, the other to total extinction. Let us pray that we have the wisdom to choose correctly."
