September Saturday Seminar – Ottawa – September 28th, 2019


Topic:  Agile and Hybrid Approaches to Managing Projects – 8:30AM

Project Management is an often misunderstood profession and this can lead to challenges when it comes to moving your career forward and reaping the benefits that you feel you deserve. In this light-hearted but very informative presentation, Phil Keast will offer strategies, tips, and tangible actions that you can take to be more successful in your career – with success being defined as more interesting work, recognition, promotion, and more money.

Phil will draw on his own real life experiences – success, failures, and endless lessons learned – to provide thoughts and guidance on what you can do to accelerate your Project Management career.

Presenter:  Tracy Alldridge

Value optimization in project management no longer happens by using one rigid methodology. Organizations are now contemplating which of predictive, iterative and adaptive methodologies brings them the most value. A fourth option is adopting a hybrid of these methodology for effective and efficient project delivery. Participants should learn about these methodologies and understand how and when the respective methodologies make the most sense.

Topic: Agile Transformation: WHY, WHAT & HOW – 10:30 AM

The presentation takes a deep dive into today's challenges faced by businesses across the globe and the drive for a new way of working, Agile Transformation as a viable solution for organisations to address the challenges highlighted in the first section and the transformation roadmap. For better appreciation, the seminar would take the attendees into the foundation of Agile (Agile Principles and Values), the frameworks within the Agile Umbrella (Scrum, Kanban etc) and ends with a case study of Agile Transformation at Canadian Organization. At the end of the session, the participants will have an indepth understanding of drivers for Agile Transformation, Deeper understanding of Agile and Scrum and a typical transformation roadmap. There would be discussions, group exercises and simulations (gamification)
