  • Lead a paradigm shift, manage Agile Transformation

    Organizations are increasingly realizing that in adopting Agile Methodologies to manage projects,

    the challenges go far beyond changing terminologies and templates to a paradigm shift in the way

    the teams are empowered and mentored to own and accelerate the outcome of their projects.

    In order to make Agile effective & successful at Product/Business Unit level and an organizational

    level, there is much more than Agile mechanics and team level practices. Agile adoption in many

    organizations is suboptimal, as Managers/Leaders have not fully understood their role in the Agile

    Transformation endeavor. In order for the organization to harness the full benefits of adopting Agile,

    a significant change is required at managers/leaders level, both in terms of their own work and

    management style, as well as in how they enable the teams and the ecosystem to embrace the

    change. To provide some insights into the dynamics of the transition, PMI Bangalore India Chapter

    in collaboration with PM Power Consulting brings this one-day workshop on “Leadership

    Challenges in Agile Transformation”.

    Target Audience

    Managers, Functional Managers, Project Managers who are aspiring to move up in an Agile
