Part 3: Governance, PMO and Certification for Agile

The PROMS-G Spring School 2019 - this is part three in a series of four events. Book once for access to all four events.

Speakers:

Barbara Roberts, Director for Professional Development, Agile Business Consortium
Andrew Craddock, Director, Agile Business Consortium

Synopsis:

The most effective project teams are those where team members are working consistently to common standards. The presentation will start by emphasising the relevance of personal certification in Agile, which lead to The Agile Business Consortium being the first organisation to offer personal certification in Agile. Since 1995 it has built a reputation for providing a meaningful professional development career path for those who want to demonstrate their knowledge and practical agile experience. This short opening session will explain the current options available.

With the ever-growing popularity of Agile, a question commonly asked is whether established governance and governance groups like the PMO still have any relevance. Based on many years of personal experience running agile transformations in complex corporate environments, Andrew and Barbara will position and explain the continued relevance of governance and the PMO in an agile organisation.
