Virtual Event via Zoom |


Finally! Governance is dead…In the ancient days of quality control, when we needed humans to "DO" rather than "THINK" to get a product to market, governance might have been the perfect solution. But today, innovation requires people to use their collective brainpower to solve problems and ensure companies stay relevant…Governance is the enemy.

Eliminating governance means that PMO's need a new playbook. And, just renaming them AMO (Agile Management Office) isn't going to do it. Executives are realizing they don't need governance, but they do need Program and Portfolio Leaders that can effectively rob from the rich and give to the poor projects so that all of their business-critical initiatives make it to market within the financial constraints.

Executives are also starting to realize that Agile isn't the only change discipline they need to drive all of their innitiatives to market efficiently!! That would be like deciding that a company could eliminate Operations, Engineering, HR, and Marketing in favor of Sales, just because someone like Tony Robins makes fantastic cool-aid!

Logically companies require multiple disciplines to succeed, so it's not irrational that they might need to employ several different change disciplines or "crafts" to drive their initiatives to market.

Join J. Scott, Founder @120VC, creator of the Transformation Accelerator, and author of "The Irreverent Guide to Project Management, An Agile Approach to Enterprise Project Management," and "It's Never Just Business, It's About People," on a journey that will answer this question once and for all. "WHAT INFORMATION DO EXECUTIVES ACTUALLY NEED TO CONFIDENTLY MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS TO ROB FROM THE RICH AND GIVE TO THE POOR?" And ultimately enable their Program and Portfolio managers to #GSD.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the Transformation Accelerator and the use case for all 7 Change disciplines,
  • A basic understanding of an Agile Portfolio Management Model that has been proven to work across the Fortune 1000,
  • Learn why everything you thought you knew about Critical Path is wrong,
  • Learn how to eliminate Risk by ACTUALLY managing to the Critical Path,
  • Learn How to Master the Concept of Project Team Demand Management – The Missing Half of Project Success, and
  • Learn a simple and proven approach for prioritization that works at the Portfolio, Program, Team, and Personal level.
Disclaimer: This presentation is not for those afraid of heights, don't think Saturday Night Live is funny, aren't interested in developing mad skills or crybabies! The session will be conducted in a remote region of the Zoom universe with no access to the "Waaaambulance"!

"Jason Scott is a dynamic speaker that is passionate about Leadership. I have heard him present on several topics over the past 3+ years, drawing in both new and seasoned project managers. I have recommended him to speak at meetings for several local Southern California PMI Chapters. Not only is he a great speaker, but his follow-up after the meeting is always timely as he treats his audience with the utmost priority." - Deby Covy, PMI Los Angeles | [email protected]

"Jason has been a guest speaker in my project management courses at USC Marshall School over the past five years. He is an informative, enthusiastic and inspiring speaker who is a pleasure to work with. Jason has a great sense of humor which helps him captivate his audience. His personal stories help him to enrich the subject matter and connect his content to the audience. I have always appreciated that he engages with my students and motivates them to participate in his talk. He is clearly a thought leader in project management and empowers his audience with tangible learning points and tools." - Murat Bayiz, Professor of Clinical Data Science and Operations Management at USC - Marshall School of Business | [email protected]

"Jason Scott is a provocative and evocative speaker. His highly engaging and irreverent style leaves listeners more than just informed or even enlightened. It leaves them altered. Jason has an ability to cut through normal corporate-speak to the heart of the matter in a light and fun way, while lacking no clarity about what is at stake. Organizations and individuals who hear his message will be better because of it." - Mark P. Murphy, CEO of Advisor to CEO's, Inc. | [email protected]
