Conclusive research findings inform us that many PMO roll-outs are disbanded in two years. Yet we repeat the same mistakes in our PMO implementations – wasting money, resources and time. In this interactive session we explore the causes for PMO blunders. With the aid of – Pete – a newly appointed PMO at Londec IT London, we investigate the many pitfalls the PMOs fall into, and together answer questions such as:

  • What is the strategic role of the value driven PMO in business?
  • What are the different useful roles a PMO can undertake?
  • What is the pivotal role of the PMO in portfolio and resource management?
  • How can the Agile PMO contribute to the marrying of Waterfall top down and Agile?

This session is based on Michael’s: Agile Product Owner Secrets – Valuable Proven Results for Agile Management Revealed

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

Who should attend: CIOs, IT Directors, Program Managers, Project Managers, Product Managers, Change Leaders and Managers, Business Analysts, and those interested in enterprise Agile from the product owner perspective, employing the product owner to scale Agile.
