The Center for the Management of IT (CMIT) invites you to join a special installment of the 2022 Knowledge ∞ Continuum on Friday, December 9, 2022, in Tyson's Corner, Virginia.

At this in-person event, our 2022 Knowledge ∞ Continuum program will join the MS MIT Class of 2023, as well as other students, alumni, and friends of our MS MIT and MSBA programs, in the Valo Park Auditorium at 4:30 p.m. for an engaging talk by featured speaker Sanjiv Augustine, Agile management consultant, entrepreneur, and author of From PMO to VMO: Managing for Value Delivery.

Agile methods have brought about dramatic changes in how organizations manage and deliver not only IT services, but their entire product and service value streams. As legacy organizations transition to newer, end-to-end agile operating models, the Project Management Office (PMO) needs to redesign its mission and operation to be more in line with these modern ways of working. That requires being more customer-focused and value-adding, and less hidebound, bureaucratic and tied to antiquated processes and mindsets. Visionary leaders are transitioning into enablers of this change, and maximizing value through the entire organization. This talk will define the role of the agile value management office (VMO), using case studies and a clear road map to help PMs visualize and implement a new path where middle management and the VMO are valued leaders in the age of business agility.

Holiday reception to follow from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Our 2022 "full cohort" Knowledge ∞ Continuum patrons will receive a complimentary copy of From PMO to VMO: Managing for Value Delivery. New patrons can add a copy of the book (paperback or Kindle) at a discounted rate to their registration fee.
