Change Leadership and Your Success

Mike will share the case for change and how he and other change leaders assist the definition, planning, communications and training of change to accelerate at a global scale.













9:00am-10:00am B

Adamson

The Overlooked PMO Cornerstones

Shawn Adamson, PMO Leader, Canyon County, Idaho

The failure rate for PMO’s is very high in the first 3 years. Our PMO here at Canyon County was no exception. We did a reboot of the PMO and have had a lot of success with it. I have asked my CIO to give some thought to what he sees as the biggest or most important changes that affected the perception of, and productivity of the PMO. I suspect he will say “marketing what the PMO does”. From my point of view, I believe we are succeeding because we do a much better job of understanding the business needs, rather than just pushing a IT based solution.

A Collaborative Approach for Improving Program and Project Management

Nirmalya Pal, IT Governance, Health Care Service Corporation

This session presents a study on continuously improving “Program and Project Management” in a Product based IT delivery model, operating in a bimodal fashion. It explores the role that Centers of Excellence (CoE) and Communities of Practice (CoP) play in governance and as levers of change, facilitating integration and adoption. The discussion will also include illustrations of key challenges in the journey and their solution. It will conclude with a proposed framework for progressing the maturity of the CoEs and CoPs, to get the desired value.

Reopelle

1:15pm-2:15pm A

Agile versus Traditional Frameworks: Which one will work for me?

Alyce Reopelle, PMO Consultant, NTT Data

In the world of technology today, things consistently change. The same is for project management. The question that most organizations are facing is whether they should go with a traditional framework, or one of the many agile frameworks. This session will be to look at not just the frameworks, and the different uses, but have some discussion on why you have to choose just one. I believe that the project and the need is what determines the framework that is best to be used. I have seen organizations fail on trying to fit all work into one framework, as we know that one size does not always fit all, and to have a successful PMO and project management practice, one must be ready to do a side step when needed. The specific frameworks that will be discussed will be waterfall, iterative, scrum, extreme programming, and hybrids. I hope you will join me as look at how a successful PMO can operate with multiple frameworks.
