Next Generation PMO (Full Day – Part I)

Agile has made its way into the mainstream. Organisations have adopted different forms and flavours of Agile to adapt business agility. Time to market is nowadays crucial for the survival of Organisations. However, PMOs seem to be stuck in the past. In January 2017 Gartner refreshed the concept:
“Zombie PMOs Appear to Be Alive; However, They Add No Value’. Some 70% to 80% of organisations possess PMOs. Many of these PMOs provide only an illusion of value. They offer little real improvement in overall PPM maturity. These will vanish in the digital future, and deservedly so.”
In this full-day, hands-on, masterclass we will discuss how existing PMOs can be transformed into a “Next Generation” PMO that will provide value to an organisation. This masterclass will guide through a broad range of topics and technics used from SAFe, Lean, Kanban and Portfolio Management. This class requires basic knowledge of Project & Portfolio Management Concepts and general Agile knowledge. Topics to be covered:
  • Overview of Value Stream Concepts (in context of Agile & Lean)
  • Example Case Study: Goals and Objectives for an Agile PMO to deliver Value
  • Discussing Portfolio Framework activities including prioritisation and categorisation (based on SAFe, DSDM & Traditional concepts)
  • Flexible Project and Portfolio Governance
  • Lean & Agile Principles within a Project Delivery Framework
  • Overview of Agile tools and techniques (including Kanban) for the use in an PMO
  • Use of Lean Canvas
  • Example Project Setup and Kickoff approaches and techniques\
  • Resource Management considerations
In addition to this one-day Masterclass, participants are encouraged to form networking groups that can last beyond this class.
