Columbia Lunch Meeting - Building Agile Centers of Excellence

PMI Baltimore Site - Columbia Lunch Meeting

This educational event qualifies for 1.00 PDU within the PMI Talent Triangle - Strategic and Business Management

Building Agile Centers of Excellence  



We have just completed another holiday season, and in all likelihood, committed to a set of brand new New Year's resolutions. In this meeting, let's spend an hour together working to add one more item to that list: "Improving One Component of Organizational Project Agility."

In this discussion, we will build upon disparate agile methods and see how a unified approach, through "Agile Centers of Excellence," demonstrates value. This topic will focus on the 3 E's; education, empowerment, and experimentation.

We'll step through the benefits of such centers, the challenges in their setup, how a support structure is built, and what can be done to continue a center's growth.
