Head of Project Management and Transformation Office
Roundtable discussion: In the times of Agile, is project management dead?
Be agile or be dead. The industry has moved away from a traditional predict-and-plan, command-and-control structure towards a more flexible model based on empowered teams.
Enter agile, the new golden standard: Is waterfall gone forever? Can the plan, monitor and control, and the new iterate and fail fast worlds live together? Should they? How agile are you anyway? Robert Jiřík will host a discussion about the wind of change breezing through product development and how it’s tearing down walls to help conquer complexity, unpredictability, and endless backlogs
How do roundtable discussions work?
- Every roundtable discussion includes 5 active participants and a moderator to run the discussion.
- Each participant will prepare a question about the chosen topic to discuss. Please come prepared with a question and be prepared to discuss the questions other participants ask.
- The roundtable discussion lasts a total of 40 minutes, including:
o 5 MINUTES: A quick introduction from each participant about who you are and what you do.
o 35 MINUTES: Interactive discussions about each question (7 minutes per question).
- Other conference attendees are welcome to quietly watch the roundtable discussion. There will always be about 15 chairs set up for an audience. We’ll also be live streaming the discussion for attendees who can’t attend in person
Don't worry if you run out of time! Feel free to continue talking with other participants after the official roundtable discussion ends.
