How to survive the jump from Highly Disciplined PMO environment to a Startup? What tools to use and when? with Joel Sullivan

The work force is on the move. Employees are no longer feeling dedicated to one company and while the "Big Resignation" may be in our rear-view mirror, there is a lot of excitement for new and smaller organizations.

Joel’s presentation speaks to every project manager who has had to straddle Agile and Predictive project management. With her eyes on the PMBOK Joel has traveled between a career as an Agile Project Manager in the San Francisco tech community and then taking a role reporting to a highly structured PMO, Joel will share with us her lessons learned and the challenges she faced. Now back into a San Francisco start up with a hyper youth culture, Joel will discuss the tools and processes she has implemented to drive project management value throughout the company.

Presenter: Joel Sullivan
Joel SullivanJoel has worked at various startup companies in the San Francisco Bay Area throughout her career, including her most current position at Iterable, a data-driven marketing technology company with headquarters in San Francisco, where she joined in the summer of 2019.  Joel graduated from the University of New Orleans with a BA in English and Technical Writing, which is a skillset she has relied upon as a project manager.  Most of her early work in project management followed a less formal, more Agile approach, but in 2015 she took a position at the University of California, Office of the President, to oversee the implementation of data pipelines to connect all nine UC campuses.  Her developer team were contractors as well and steeped in the Agile framework while the UC and the associated project steering committee demanded adherence to more traditional project management methodologies, such as formal change management and predictive schedule management.  It was in this environment where Joel learned to put a truly hybrid approach to project management into practice.

At her current position, she now manages a growing team of 3 project managers who report directly to her as well as an EMEA project management team reporting to functional managers in the UK. As the company continues to scale at breakneck speed, the processes the team employs are becoming increasingly standardized and formal, but in the world of software development, a change-oriented focus is the key to success.

When not managing projects or putting out customer fires, Joel loves getting outside to hike and swim in the wilds of California. Previously, she was a die-hard camper, but these days prefers the comfort of a hotel or “glamping” from the comforts of a heated yurt.
