As teams move from traditional project management practices to Agile methods, the roles and responsibilities of the project manager often need re-defined to better fit the dynamic team environment.

In this session, John Okoro and Ronica Roth from Rally Software will discuss the common, tough questions asked by project managers as they discover the Agile process. Hear real life, in-the-trenches examples of major enterprise customers who have transformed their traditional teams into energetic, Agile organizations.

Some of the questions, we’ll cover:
* How do I fund and initiate Agile projects?
* How do traditional roles change: PMP, BA, Architect, QA, Dev Team?
* How do I work with highly distributed, offshore teams?
* How do I ensure that governance and regulatory mandates are met?
* How do I report progress to my stakeholders?
* How can I get started with low risk and high payback?

Learning Points

In this session, you will learn:
1. How to support a fixed scope project environment with Agile.
2. The information and resources to bring to the table to help convince management of the benefits of Agile.
3. The mechanics and benefits of using Agile in a highly distributed environment.
4. How Agile can help teams with governance and regulatory mandates succeed.
