How I got thrown into a chaotic, short-suspense 'project' and used PMP's approach to stakeholder management, communications planning, requirements/scope management and reporting tool development to standardize and provide some order to the madness.
This event/activity qualifies for 8.00 PDUs - 4 Technical and 4 Leadership.
Are YOU an “Agile” Project Management Professional??
Agile is NOT just for Software Projects!!
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Anyone who has a role in the process of defining and executing projects. PMs, Individual Contributors, Functional Managers, Customers and “Users”.
The profession of project management is always searching for a “better, faster, cheaper” approach for delivering projects. Many of these new concepts are simply the “flavor of the day” and they quickly fade and languish in obscurity. In his half a century of practicing and teaching project management, Lee R. Lambert, PMI Fellow, has seen them all. The Agile approach is the latest “silver bullet” for the stressed and frustrated project manager and the organizations they serve. But, unlike other new wave techniques, Lambert believes Agile is here to stay! He is convinced that when properly implemented Agile is one of the most powerful and effective methods of executing projects of all kinds – NOT just IT projects. Agile is here to stay, so now is the time to “get with the program” and develop your “Agile mentality”...

Throughout the history of the practice of project management we have been subject to a plethora of techniques and practices that, while fashionable at the time, became obsolete very quickly. For several years many saw Agile as one of those short-term quick-fix ideas that would soon be remembered as nothing more than a buzzword.
By now most of us realize that that hasn’t happened! Agile has become one of several trends that are changing the way we accomplish our goals. In this brief presentation, Lisa and Dave will look at some of the current trends that are shaping our industry, and then you can decide…fashion or fundamental?
