Although sponsored by PMI, all roles and backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to participate / debate. We value the variety of perspectives and levels of experience with agile.

Working with Complex Systems (with an Introduction to the Cynefin Framework)

Have you ever been part of a project that no matter how well planned it is, it seems much harder than it should be and you don't see the results you originally hoped for? It's possible that the approach taken may have been incorrect for the situation and a new paradigm of decision making may be necessary. This talk will give you a useful framework to understand different contexts that we work in and more appropriate decision making techniques for the different situations we find in our business. The session will also cover how this understanding can be applied in project management and leadership. Be prepared for an eye opening discussion that may very will change how you approach your work from now on!

Rhea Stadick applies leading edge techniques to accelerate business results across complex, global organizations. She's driven by the need to do the right things right and ensure healthy workplaces that support diversity of thought and encourage continuous improvement and learning. Over the last 10 years she's led grassroots efforts and initiatives to establish improved ways of working that focus on fast value delivery and sustainable development.

November PMI Agile Roundtable - Conflict, Collaboration and Consciousness with Jean Richardson
Unitus Community Credit Union

Agile teams are all about high bandwidth cross-functional communication. But, we can get really jumpy about conflict. Creative conflict is where the good stuff is in product development and innovation.

In her travels Jean has had the opportunity to observe a large number of teams work together—and attempt to work together. It’s clear that conversations change, the way the team moves together changes, and quality of work changes as the teams consciousness is raised. Many agile practices serve to support the goal of consciousness raising. Through observation, research, and experimentation, Jean has developed a working definition of team consciousness which will be a useful tool for you as you lead agile projects.

Come learn about how effective conflict engagement deepens consciousness and what we mean when we talk about consciousness and software development. Jean’s style is dialogic, so expect to interact!

About Jean Richardson Jean Richardson is principal consultant and founder of Azure Gate Consulting. Through more than 25 years of experience in software development she consulted in project management, writing, training, public speaking, and business analysis, and the last five years as an Agile coach helping leaders transform organizations.

As a businessperson, she has learned that basic human issues are at the root of most business problems and most customer/vendor, employer/employee, or client/consultant disputes. Jean believes that if we ignore this fact we dehumanize ourselves and imperil our society.

As a consultant, her client list boasts a wide range of businesses including ADP, Cambia Health Systems, Chrome Systems, Dealertrack, Intel, Daimler/Chrysler, Kaiser Permanente, Mentor Graphics, Oregon State Department of Human Services, Portland General Electric, The Regence Group, US Bank, and UTi. Jean’s background includes thirteen years’ experience as a court-based mediator, and she brings a strong orientation to her practice as healing work.

She has taught at Oregon Graduate Institute, Portland State University, and at Marylhurst University where she taught MBA students. She teaches “Collaboration for Cross Functional Teams,” “Facilitative Leadership,” and “Effective Conflict Engagement” for private clients. She is a frequent speaker at conferences and professional development events.

This Month we're honored to have Jean Richardson present: Servant Leadership: A Grounding Discussion

Summary: For agilists, servant leadership has long been the go-to leadership model. Most agilists aren’t grounded in what servant leadership really is.

This discussion will introduce you to the founder, his initial conceptual overview of servant leadership, modern thought leaders, and common critiques of the model. You will leave with an easy way to determine whether you really are a successful servant leader.


Jean Richardson led the webinar “Intro to Servant Leadership for the Flummoxed” last month. She will set the context for a discussion on this leadership model and encourage discussion among the attendees. Jean is the author of The Preservation of the Agile Heart, an advanced discussion of agile advocacy and where agile advocates need to go from here. Learn more at agileheartinfo.com.

This Month we're honored to have Daniel Lynn present: Technical Consulting

Summary: What Is Technical Coaching?

All the best athletes teams have coaches. Musicians and singer? They have coaches too. If you’re a top-level executive at a Fortune 500 company, chances are you have a coach too. So what about the people building your products? Should they have coaches?

Coaching has really taken off over the past decade, but somehow our teams - the people who make the products that our companies live or die by - they’ve been left behind. In this talk we’ll discuss the what a technical coach does (and doesn’t do) and how to tell if your team could benefit from one.

About Daniel:

Daniel has been developing software for nearly two decades and has been working in agile teams for the last 10 years. More recently, he has worked with agile42 coaching teams on the adoption of agile practices both in code and across the organization, but his passion is still in writing great software and helping others do the same.

This Month we're honored to have Adam Light facilitating: Change is Hard! Lessons Learned from Enterprise Agile Transformation

Fast moving SAAS businesses use agile methods natively. The recently-published PMI Agile Practice Guide shows there is broad understanding of agile practice fundamentals. Yet agile transformation continues to struggle in traditional organizations. What lessons can we draw after 15 years of mainstream experience? Come share your own experiences and gain a higher-level perspective on the difficult work of leading Agile change in an established company.

Your guide for this conversation will be Adam Light. Adam led his first agile transformation as the director of a traditional PMO. His experience made him a believer in Agile. And he has since spent nearly ten years helping technology leaders lead change and overcome challenges to make their traditional organizations more productive, innovative, and humane.
