We have classic BSA’s and Project Managers that seem to undergo identity crisis during an Agile Transformation. Where do I fit in? What am I supposed to do? The skills and knowledge of the people are extremely valuable, but the practices and methods need to shift to support the new delivery construct. What transitions and communication strategies have I seen that have worked? What are some of the challenges I have seen? How do we approach these challenges as leaders or team members? How has the accountability and responsibility shifted?
A few years ago, I was trying to find a way to track projects more efficiently. I wanted to be able to give stakeholders and sponsors real-time updates. But, I wanted to be able to do it in a way where I didn’t have to spend endless hours updating tasks. I reached out to other project managers to get some ideas. They were all great, there was an access database, a software tool, an excel spreadsheet, and of course Microsoft Project. However, none of those tools worked for me! Maybe you’re in the same dilemma, or maybe you have mastered this with “your favorite tool.” Let’s get together to discuss the tools we use, the pros and cons and learn from each other. Who knows, maybe your tool will be my next favorite tool!

Grow Your Skills
It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
