Truly Managing a Project and Keeping Sane While Wrestling Elegantly With PMBOK, Scrum and CMMI

March 24, 2017

8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

When organizations implement Scrum (Agile), they usually experience challenges because Scrum is a framework, not a complete solution. Adding practices from other frameworks, such as PMBOK and CMMI can seem overwhelming. 

When teams see Agile as a complete process solution (rather than a process framework), then the missing practices add cost, schedule and quality risks back to the project. Teams moving from Waterfall to Agile don’t eliminate risks, they transfer them. When risks are not assessed or mitigated, they become problematic, even chaotic.

This seminar contrasts CMMI, PMBOK and Scrum, and shows how to treat all three as toolboxes to run a successful project.  This workshop earns you 8 PDUs.

Earlybird pricing ends 3/5.  Registration closes 3/22.
