YES JEWELLERY – Agile in the Project Management Office (PMO)

The best project teams move forward despite difficulties. Every day, they leap over the ” Can’t Dos” and strenuously climb the “Impossibles” to be surprised by the results at the end.

CLIENT:
YES Jewellery is one of the leading jewellery manufacturers in Poland. It has a network of 160 showrooms in the most prestigious locations.

NEED:
The team is running an increasing number of projects involving representatives from different departments. Working in interdisciplinary teams requires consistency of process, which is why I was asked to analyse the project management process for the Team. The people involved in this training and consultancy process had to deepen their project management core skills.

CHALLENGE:
Propose solutions that will work in an environment with 40 years of tradition in the luxury and artisanal products industry.

SOLUTION:
The training and consultancy project was divided into 3 phases. In the first phase, a team Retrospective was conducted, which confirmed the strengths and main development areas. The team was then trained using the Raven 13 simulation and Agile training. This gave everyone an understanding of the key methods and tools of modern project work. The final phase of the development project was the Team Consultation, which allowed the participants to understand the newly acquired knowledge in specific business situations.
