Topic Title: Kanban. My Game Changer.

Adam Hsu began his career as a COBOL programmer back in 1997 and within a few years he found himself quickly promoted to becoming a project manager after leading several successful projects. In 2004 Adam took the plunge and became a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) and further honed his craft in managing to the triple constraints while keeping his teams and constituents generally satisfied with well-crafted status reports, plans-upon-plans, and the uncanny ability to over-communicate in every medium possible. Ten years and many PMI Tampa Bay Symposiums later it seemed the demand for certified project managers would never end. Spoiler alert: It did. Worse yet, Adam who was affectionately known by his peers as Mr. PMP was assigned to “look into this agile thing” that seemed to be catching like wild-fire and find out how to get it installed/implemented/whatever. Agile = Scrum, right? PM = Scrum Master, right? Milestones = Sprints, right? Requirements = Stories, right? You probably can relate your own “transformation” experiences here, so no need to go further as some of you might still be looking for a light at the end of the tunnel. Fortunately for Adam the light appeared when someone asked him a very simple question: “What do you know about Kanban?” 
In this presentation Adam will share his journey from starting out as a traditional delivery project manager to finding himself becoming a student of the Lean Kanban Method in hopes that his story will offer some insights for those who are looking for another path to agility.
