Over time the Project Management community has strived to build repeatability and
predictability in project delivery for organizations. In doing so many of theses Project Management Ofﬁces have created an environment ﬁlled with the stench of control, process and inefﬁciency. So how did a movement with such good intent transition to being a burden in many organizations?
Lean Project Management provides far greater value to an organization, over a focus on strong repeatable processes. Through this time together we will explore the areas of People, Product and Processes to identify how your organization operates. Then we’ll explore what it means to be lean with your project management practices.
As with anything in Agile & Lean there is no one-sized ﬁts all answer. Through this session we will look at how your organization manages the work, and through real stories explore a better approach.Project Management is not going away anytime soon as they could be providing a valuable function in many organizations. As a community if we look at these things in the right light we can transform and rock our world!

Mike has spent the past 15 years leading teams of all shapes and sizes. When Mike
stumbled across Lean and Agile several years ago it rocked his belief system and
forever changed how he viewed our work. However, the bridge between teams and
management is wrought with broken boards and weak supports. Mike now focuses
on building stronger bridges between these important groups, and helping
organizations find a new path forward.
