Project managers obviously love processes, considering there was a full-house at the Project Club’s event on process management this past Monday.
It was a honor to accept the invitation to present the principles of agile process management and Procesoid itself to a room full of experienced project managers, who were attending the well-known Project Club in the city of Ostrava — its concept is pretty unique, part think-tank, part meetup for professionals.
As two of Procesoid’s co-founders, Paul Minar and I prepared a four-chapter presentation that spanned almost 3 hours, including time for a lively debate.
There was 1) an introduction with best-practices, 2) a summary of the theoretical background for the introduction of more flexible methods and checklists to the rigid approaches of old-school business process management, 3) an overview of the worst real-life problems with process management and 4) Paul’s highly entertaining presentation of Procesoid’s pure power to bring order to any mess in both work and a personal life. (If you have never seen Paul lecturing, you should experience it one day, he’s one of the best and most pleasant presenters I’ve ever seen.)
There was an electrifying atmosphere throughout the evening as we took questions, debated them and gave our honest opinions about how much the world of process management has changed over the last few years and what challenges lie ahead — for us, Procesoid and the whole field.
Two strong moments particularly stood out for me:
It was a pleasure to be part of such a wonderful event.
