Event Details

The Agile PMO  -  Workshop

Learn tools and best practices - practical model for value driven project and portfolio management AND earn 7 PDUs


Based on http://www.amazon.com/Agile-Project-Management-Effective-Leadership-ebook/dp/B00BMP8518/


Conclusive research findings inform us that many PMOs are disbanded in two years. Yet; we repeat the same mistakes in our PMO implementations – wasting money, resources and time. In this practical one- day workshop we focus on the value driven PMO as an integrator, enabler, differentiator, and change agent in business, development and the organization in general. We analyze the essential model for PMO value enablement which answers:


•    What does it mean to be an Agile PMO – see more below;
•    How to ensure effective streamlined delivery – hint: abolish waste;
•    How to effectively select and prioritize opportunities;
•    How to manage resource allocation from a top down approach in an effective manner – hint: target critical resources


We discuss theory, learn in teams and pairs, explore a case study, and work through a challenging hands-on simulation to understand resource complexities.

=========================================================

Key take away – a PMO must deliver value constantly. Value isn’t template, tools and processes rather it is the ability to finish the right projects faster

=========================================================


The term Agile PMO refers to two concepts:

  • A PMO that is inherently agile, adaptive and value driven – committed to creating value in all its activities.
  • A PMO that interfaces between Agile product delivery and the traditional Waterfall organization.

In the workshop we discuss both concepts, paving the way for a PMO that is lean both in itself and as a transformation entity.

Workshop objectives:

  • To learn how to avoid common pitfalls of PMO implementations;
  • To identify key points of increasing value delivery through a lean value driven PMO;
  • To recognize new opportunities for PMO and Agile project management;
  • To discover better ways of leading and sustaining change through a strategic PMO.
