Tailoring Scrum with DA: Aligning Scrum to the Standard for Project Management to Maximize Project Success

About the Presentation

In this 40-min workshop, explore PMI’s Strategy to help organizations and project managers tailor Scrum, to make them fit for purpose. Scrum is a popular agile framework that enables organizations to deliver value quickly through iterative development. However, applying Scrum effectively requires tailoring it to the organization’s governance needs and unique stakeholder landscape. 

In this 40-minute session, we will explore PMI’s recommended approach for tailoring Scrum in a manner that enables robust project governance while still reaping the benefits of agile development. Attendees will learn a methodology for categorizing project stakeholders, engaging them appropriately throughout the project life cycle, and shifting stakeholder sentiments in a productive direction. 

Insights will be drawn from an agile case study focused on stakeholder management during the implementation of a complex system. 

Key Takeaways

  • Integrating Scrum events with PMI-standard governance touchpoints 
  • Customizing the Scrum framework to facilitate effective collaboration with both internal and external stakeholders 
  • Proactively managing varied stakeholder perspectives through enhanced transparency and communication 
  • Adapting the Scrum roadmap to align with stakeholder priorities and governance requirements 
  • Attendees will come away with a concrete understanding of how to tailor Scrum for disciplined agile delivery, while enabling robust project governance and stakeholder engagement using the DA Browser.
