Have you been a part of an Agile Transformation?

Are you working on Agile Projects?


If you work on project management related tasks, manage project management resources, or have an Agile-related certification (e.g. PMI-ACP, CSM) then WE would like to invite YOU to participate in this important research. Isaac Wilson is a doctoral candidate at Trident University International who is researching the challenges within Agile projects and what factors affect agile transformation.



When compared to Waterfall, the Agile methodology has been a boon for technical teams to develop and deliver software solutions. For Business teams, this transformation has not been as smooth or accepted. Isaac’s research will attempt to identify those challenges and the different factors that may affect Agile transformation.

Because it is not known what experiences members of the PMI Kentuckiana Chapter have had with the successful (or unsuccessful) implementation of Agile software solutions during Agile transformation from Waterfall, this research will focus on learning the following from you:

  1. What Business-oriented challenges do PMI members describe during an Agile transformation?
  2. What Successful Criteria have PMI members identified for Business resources to employ to improve their chances of success during an Agile transformation?
