Forget What You Think You Know: Transitioning to Lean-Agile Project Management

The transition to lean and agile approaches is gaining popularity in IT software development organizations. But, many organizations embark on an agile transition with early team successes, only to struggle later to institutionalize both the processes and their benefits. Often, this is because the underlying reason of why agile approaches work is not well understood.


Managing agile projects requires an understanding of what initially appears to be a paradox—the management of self-organizing teams. It is common to conclude that agile implies management is unnecessary or something to be eliminated. The reality is that successful scaled implementations of lean-agile software development require that managers learn new competencies and approaches. This presentation will focus on five key lean-agile competencies that seem counterintuitive when compared with conventional project management practices.
