The Agile PMO
Practical Value Driven Change Leadership in Projects and Portfolios
“The average lifespan of a company listed in the S&P 500 has shrunk by more than 50 years in the last century, from 67 years in the 1920s to 15 years today”… (Yale professor Richard Foster).
Conclusive research findings show that approximately 50 percent of Project Management Offices (PMO) are disbanded in two years. Yet, we repeat the same mistakes in our PMO implementations – wasting money, resources and most important – wasting time. We use out-of-the-box command and control PMO mechanisms to stifle our project management efforts; focusing on time, cost, and scope, rather than leading our projects to deliver value successfully!
The value driven PMO
In this book 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 supporting effective project management; answering the following questions:
- What is the strategic role of the value driven PMO in business?
- How to ensure effective streamlined delivery of projects and products?
- How to effectively select and prioritize business opportunities?
- How to become a bridge and enabler between team agile delivery and the control requirements of the business?
