PRESENTATION TOPIC: “Tailoring Agile – Reality and What the PMBOK Says”

WHEN: Tuesday, Sept 10, 2019 (6:00pm - 8:00pm)

WHERE: O-I Perrysburg Campus Plaza Four, 2051 N Wilkinson Way, Perrysburg, Ohio 43551

SPEAKER: Mr. Dave Davis, PMP, PgMP, PBA & ACP Practitioner of project/program management and a recognized professional in the field of helping businesses implement change.

The PMBOK® Guide – Fifth Edition introduced the concept of “tailoring” to adjust your methodology to your business needs. The PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition and Agile Practice Guide were created to complement each other and address tailoring and Agile. The PMBOK focused on “predictive” practices while the Agile Practice guide on Agile practices and there was a common denominator! The PMBOK guide discusses tailoring your project to accommodate Agile Principles and the Agile Practice included a correlation between Agile and the PMI Knowledge Areas, an obvious acknowledgement that the two work together.

This presentation will explore what tailoring means and how to “tailor” a project to accommodate Agile and Predictive methodologies. Referencing real life experiences, PMO Methodology developers and interviews with Agile practitioners, you will understand the opportunities for integrating and tailoring a project. You will understand attainable early wins, existing techniques already in place, and how to bridge an agile culture and a predictive culture. Dave will share how the PMP and PBA tests address this relationship and how to incorporate it into your project methodology. He will also explore the Stacey Complexity Model and the relationship between requirement and technical complexity. Case studies of real-world tailoring (in multiple industries including healthcare, manufacturing, and financial services) will explore the technical shift in tailoring agile and the methodology/culture shift across organizations.
