About the Event

Change is difficult and sometimes painful. However, the rapid growth in technology over the years has ignited an eagerness within organizations to integrate new and innovative practices to transform their business and meet new demands. Particularly, Agile methodologies are being adopted by enterprises seeking to reach business excellence by bringing increased value and satisfaction to their customer. However, this transformation can be intimidating, and organizations are often plagued with questions. How exactly do we bring this new agile approach into the business? How will our employees adapt? Will it work? Is it even worth it?
In this session, a case study of a large enterprise considering the adoption of Agile will be discussed. We will address strategies used to evaluate the organization’s capability for change and highlight the benefits and challenges of introducing agile principles into traditional environments. Suggestions will also be made on how to effectively implement new models/solutions and encourage enthusiasm throughout the organizational ranks. After all, the success of a business transformation requires a motivated and consolidated effort for maximum customer satisfaction.

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.
