What Happens to the PMO in an Agile Transformation?
Avi Schneier Gary Dismukes

The Challenge: neither the Scrum Guide nor the Scrum@Scale Guide mention the typical role of Project Managers. During an agile transformation, many organizations are confused as to what happens to these people and the office itself? The Remedy: There are three possible trajectories for solving this problem, including the creation of an Agile Practice (Agile COE), that solve these issues: what Agile roles do PMs take? What about the responsibilities of a traditional PM? Who does that? Why Attend: Hear exactly how Gary Dismukes, former Director of Engineering Project Management & current Director of Agile Transformation and Agile Architect at Dell Technology, eliminated his own job. You’ll also hear from Avi Schneier, Principal Consultant at Scrum Inc., about how he has evolved PMOs in large organizations that were unwilling to eliminate them.
