About the Webinar

Agile project management is a game changer, especially for IT project managers. That is because, typically, when agile is embraced by an organization, the role of project manager is de-emphasized in favor of self-organizing teams, and large strategic projects are decomposed in favor of shorter more frequent releases. The business Project Management Office typically handles the strategic efforts, and the IT organization pivots to improving infrastructure and processes for managing code releases into environments. 
So, what do these shifts mean for the IT project manager and their career path? Using research and practical experience, this webinar introduces the agile concepts that most affect IT project managers and their options moving forward.


Main learning points include: 

  • Agile concepts in relation to project management processes
  • The shift from IT project manager to scrum master or product owner or subject matter expert.
  • Relationship between scrum master and product owner
  • New skills to succeed in the agile universe with an emphasis on:
    • Facilitator: Coaching and team development
    • Change manager: Emphasis on flexibility
    • Innovation cheerleader
    • Business story writer and backlog management
