Managing Projects: London Project and Programme Management Forum – After Dark!

February 1 @ 6:00 pm - February 28 @ 6:00 pm

28th February | 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm – The London Project and Programme Management Forum will be holding their next networking event in partnership with the I Am Group.

PPM2

This informal event, designed for project, programme and change managers working in local and regional government, professional membership bodies, charities and other not-for-profit sector organisations, will combine talks from leading experts, along with informal networking in a sociable setting. Refreshments and nibbles will be included as part of the evening.

We are delighted that Keith Richards is our guest speaker. Keith will present on PRINCE2 Agile before we have a wider Q&A and discussion about this methodology from AXELOS that’s created a significant buzz.

We are planning another interactive evening of debate, discussion and networking based around this theme giving you the opportunity to reflect on and share knowledge about your PPM journey and that of your organisation.

Outline Programme 

6.00pm Registration and networking

6.30pm How can PRINCE2 Agile improve the way you deliver projects

             Guest speaker and lead author of PRINCE2 Agile Keith Richards followed by Q&A and discussion

There’s a new kid on the block! PRINCE2 embraces agile. AXELOS  launched their PRINCE2 Agile product in 2015. This session will look at:

  • Why combine PRINCE2 with agile?
  • What are their respective strengths?
  • Where are the two approaches complimentary?
  • What are the challenges when combining the two?
  • How do you address the common misconceptions of agile and PRINCE2?
  • Why PRINCE2 is NOT a ‘traditional’ approach to project management?
  • How do you create a culture where they can operate together?
  • What are the benefits? How will it help your organisation?

Many new agile concepts are now appearing to address the need to manage agile in wider and more complicated situations, but is this reinventing the wheel? PRINCE2 is a proven approach and an industry standard that already has the principles and processes to take agile to greater heights.

7.30pm Networking continues

9.00pm Close

Tickets will cost £10 (+  a £1.04 booking fee) per person to be paid in advance to cover the cost of the venue, organisation and refreshments (drinks alcoholic and non-alcoholic and nibbles).
