Welcome to the PMO Strategies Podcast + Blog, where PMO leaders become IMPACT Drivers!

PMI Talent Triangle: Ways of Working (Technical Project Management)

Hey, IMPACT Driver!

Let’s be honest: Agile is broken. From the recent wave of tech layoffs, the post-pandemic debate over remote vs. in-office, and DEI being pushed to the sidelines, it seems the Agile silver bullet has lost its shine lately. How do we fix this?  

I am thrilled to invite Agile pioneer Jesse Fewell back to the podcast this week to help answer this question.  

Jesse Fewell has mentored thousands of technology professionals across 14 countries to improve their teams & companies using Agile methods. He’s founded several startups, contributed to three industry certifications (PMI-ACP, CST, CEC) and PMBoK 7, and has authored publications reaching over half a million readers in eleven languages. 

According to Jesse, the problems Agile faces today cannot be solved by simply forcing everyone back into the office. He believes that navigating the post-pandemic collaborative environment is an existential leadership challenge that places one of the twelve principles of Agile into question. Can you guess which one?
