Learning Agile Project Management with the Beatles

Business Acumen

Please log into the webinar with the same first and last name as your PMI Global account, as this will allow us to upload your PDU for this event.


In January 1969, after not performing live for over 2 years, the Beatles got together to write and rehearse 14 new songs. The project goal was to deliver a show before a live audience which would then be recorded into an album. They had 30 calendar days and 21 working days to pull it off. They succeeded and unbeknownst to them, used some agile practices to achieve their goal. In this talk, we take a deep dive into 2021 The Beatles: Get Back documentary miniseries to tease out agile lessons.


Learning Objectives:

  • Applying flow-based agile methodology
  • Engaging negative stakeholders
  • Compare outcomes of agile vs. waterfall
