How can managers play a value-adding role when their organizations go agile? How can PMOs avoid being process police and instead truly support Scrum and Agile teams, enable the enterprise rollout of Agile methods, and sustain long-term agile adoption? Learn how industry leaders are scaling Scrum with Agile PMOs that:
  • Bring lean discipline to project prioritization and selection
  • Track and monitor the delivery of value across multiple projects
  • Implement humane resource management through stable teams
  • Mature process adoption through the careful application of metrics, tools and high-level standardization
Sanjiv will share principles and techniques for the Agile PMO, and discuss how those concepts are being applied in the industry to scale Agile methods to programs and portfolios of multiple agile and non-agile projects.

About the Washington Circle Luncheons

PMIWDC's Washington Circle luncheons are a series of free brownbag luncheons hosted at 2201 G St, NW in Downtown DC. There are luncheons every fourth Wednesday of the month, unless posted otherwise.

This program series is made possible by the generous support of George Washington University School of Business, which offers a Master of Science in Project Management (MSPM) degree. The MSPM program is designed to meet the needs of working professionals who want to enhance their ability to integrate complex projects, motivate people, and achieve cost-effective results. With courses offered both on-campus and online, students have the flexibility to complete the degree from virtually anywhere.

Washington Circle luncheons are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is preferred, but walk-ins are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis.
