High Church of Lean Coffee

Link visible for attendees

Let's spend the late morning sun(?) in lightly-facilitated discussions of Agile-, work- and life-inspired topics and notions are the name of the game at High Church (no deities or prayer necessary).

While many of us who gather work in tech and are aligned to big-A or little-a agile systems and ways of organizing our work, this community is also curious and creative to end up drawing on all kinds of non-traditional influences. Which makes our conversations fun, surprising and enlightening. Join us!

Agile PM Roundtable: Enable Change to Achieve the Envisioned Future State

Link visible for attendees

We want the future to be better than the present. So, as we move towards the future, things will have to change. And in order for things to change, people will have to change. And that can be challenging for everyone, including (and especially) the people driving those changes.

The Agile manifesto and principles talk about change, but don't go into much detail about the practical implementations. Traditional project management focuses on changes to projects and processes and not so much on the people and systems impacted by those changes.

The Seventh Edition of the PMBOK strikes a new chord and discusses the sources of change, the pace of change, and who is impacted by change. It doesn't offer all of the answers, but it's a good place to start.

At the February Agile PM Roundtable, we'll discuss creating change to bring about the future we envision. Bring your questions, experiences, and ideas for enabling change to our Lean Coffee.

  • Where does change come from in your organizations? What does it look like?
  • Which techniques work well to enable change? Which don't?
  • How do you know that a change is "done" and that the future state has been achieved?
