Let Ideas Compete - Not People, Discovering the new and better "3rd Idea"
Speaker:  Don Thoren
Topic:  Let Ideas Compete - Not People, Discovering the new and better "3rd Idea"
Conflicting opinions, turf wars, customer demands, complex technological choices, and the assignment of conflicting responsibilities are the issues most likely to cripple organizations. The solution to all this chaotic change and attendance conflict is embracing the commitment to, “Let Ideas Compete—Not People”! This skillful collision of ideas CAN create new and better “3RD IDEAS.” Learning to view passionate conflict as an invaluable engine of creativity is the key to organizational and personal success.

Agile UP 2018 Logo

December 8, 2018 (10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.)

Location: ASU Chandler Innovation Center

Join us on December 8th, 2018 as the PMI Phoenix Chapter continues our “AGILE UP” tradition, this year in partnership with Arizona State University! The Project Management profession has seen many exciting things in 2018, including the PMI Phoenix Chapter celebrating our 40th Anniversary in Arizona, and “Agile” related information integrated throughout the PMBOK® Sixth Edition.

One of the featured speakers at this year’s event is renowned Agile public speaker, coach and facilitator Dimitri Ponomareff. Dimitri will present on:

“Leveraging Kanban to create the Agile Organization”

As Agile is more accepted as the way to develop software in organizations, some software teams and groups in IT are also becoming Agile, but in using Kanban as their chosen Agile methodology. By leveraging Kanban in addition to Scrum, other groups in the organization like marketing, legal, finance, sales, etc... are also embracing Agile by using Kanban boards to improve the way their business processes flow across the organization. Dimitri shares his vast experience to illustrate how organizations have introduced Kanban across levels and functions of their organizations. You will learn Kanban and walk away with real examples/techniques that you can implement immediately within your organization.

Other presentations anticipated include Agile highlights and best practices such as Kanban, DevOps, Scrum, Lean, and others. More speaker information to come soon! Last year “AGILE UP” had an outstanding turnout and excellent feedback - we look forward to seeing you there!

Coffee and bagels will be served, and there will be raffle prizes!!

NOTE: Pre-registration is required for all to attend.
