Three speakers from our upcoming Project Management Symposium on April 20-21, 2023 were featured in the February 2023 PM Point of View Podcast on the topic of “So You Want to Agile.”
We all talk Agile, and sometimes we “say we wanna do agile,” so this conversation is about the challenges of implementing Agile in different environments with guests David Forsyth, Mike Millane, and Caitlin Kenny. Co-host Mike Hannan takes these experts through a journey of the tensions between customers and vendors and the difficulty in managing communication pathways, budgeting, and the principle-agent problem. Solutions you care about included dedicating teams, synchronizing resources, capacity-based budgeting, and fixed-price contracts. Ah, and culture, it always is culture…that the shift that comes with embracing Agile and how transformation should be a continuous journey that focuses on business value. So, with a little patience and a focus on interpersonal accountability, incentives, and autonomy you can build the trusting teams needed to do the Agile dance. Fight the zealotry, power to the edge, and download the episode!
