Mohsen Ghazizadeh

Agile Coach  @ Agile Realized

Agile has become a frequently used Buzz word in many Companies and Industries these days and often times the true definition of what it takes to have an Agile organization is missed. We see organizations attempt to become and transform to an Agile Model and their attempts either fail at the beginning or they end up with an incorrect and incomplete model which does not help or transpire what Agile is all about.  

The most common mistake is transitioning the role of Project Manager to Scrum Master.  This transition (being one of the Most Important roles in any Agile Model) is done wrong a majority of the times and results in complete failure.  In this talk, Mohsen demystifies what Agile Methodology and thinking is, how it relates to project management, and discusses some of the common mistakes.

Mohsen Ghazizadeh is an Agile coach and an information technology business professional with over twenty years of experience.  His passion and primary focus is helping organizations and business professionals streamline their process and execution models.  Mohsen is an Agilist at heart - passionate about Agile and its different flavors and methodologies.  He has the uncanny ability to develop unique solutions which work by effectively enhancing the organization’s process and facilitate their goals in a timely and efficient manner.   With his extensive background in software development, e-commerce, and business development & operations, he has the proven ability to observe and visualize the broad perspective of an organization, both from the organization’s standpoint and human factor – allowing him to develop success driven solutions and which aid in achieving maximum results for the organization.

September 17, 2015 Incorporating Organizational Change Management into Project Management - 2PDUs

What’s Organizational Change management?  Here’s a good description from Wikipedia “Change management is an approach to transitioning individuals, teams, and organizations to a desired future state“.  What if the organization won't accept the change?  Have you ever had a project that was rolled out only to find the intended audience refused to use the new product/procedure? 

If communication and training are not enough to have the project results adopted, then what is?  Likely the responsibility for the adoption of the change does not in fact lie with the project team.  Yet the project team cannot really claim the project was successful if no one is using the new product/procedure; therefore it’s critical that the project team support change management activities actively by coordinating project activities with change management activities. 

In this workshop we’ll discuss the change management activities that need to be coordinated with project activities in order for the project to be successful.  Activities such as demos, dog-and-pony shows, and presentations will be needed and the project team will need to perform or support those activities.
