Presented by Heath Slawner, one of Simon Sinek’s “Start With Why” Ignitors. Some organizations have cultures where their people are able to trust each other so deeply that they would literally put their lives on the line for each other. Other cultures, no matter what incentives are offered, are doomed to infighting, fragmentation and failure. Why? This keynote draws on Simon Sinek’s two books, “Start With Why” and “Leaders Eat Last.” Understand the reason simply knowing or believing the Why is not enough. Once people are united by a common cause, there must be a strong culture that keeps them together. The result is a positive impact for everyone involved. The result is deeply loyal colleagues who will stop at nothing to advance their vision and their organization’s interests.

Presented by Dave West, CEO of Scrum.org. There is no mistaking it. The last 10 years has seen a fundamental shift in how we shop, consume news, even communicate with our friends and family. We have entered the Digital Age where the economics, systems and structures are different. Traditional organizations are trying to keep up and evolve to better serve this new age. The evolution to become more agile is not easy. The resulting tension manifests itself in many forms including confusion of job title and disconnected processes as organization run a hybrid agile and traditional organization. Some days this works, some days it doesn’t. Ideas such as self-organization, empowerment coupled with empirical process and customer centricity strike at the heart of job titles that were designed in a world of parental management, specialism of labor and resource management. How do you survive and thrive in this messy world? What does it mean for your job title and skills?

Now that agile methods are here to stay, executives are looking to PMO leaders for answers to fundamental questions: What is the agile movement all about?

Even more puzzling, if agile methods encourage self-organizing teams, then how does that impact the role of a PMO, or even the role of the project manager itself? In this eye-opening session, we will sift out fact from fiction and walk away with actionable tips for evolving your PMO to support agile methods.
