Necessity is the Mother of Invention. But research shows us that creativity emerges from time to think, backing off, having some slack in the system. In 1999 Coleman was on the ropes. The business had been sold and then sold again. Everyone who could leave had left. Imagine that you return to take over as President to see what you can do to salvage the situation …and then Walmart calls asking to see the plan.

Scaling Agile practices beyond software development teams and IT departments is a growing trend, and the Agile Enterprise is a reality rather than a goal. However, the transition from planned approach to Agile is a painful change, and PMO can provide support for Agile rather than be perceived as an archaic team supporting “waterfall”. Once the organisation decides to adopt Agile, the PMO should be the champion of the transformation process, providing support to the Project Managers with less experience with Agile delivery while ensuring that governance requirements are met. This webinar is a summary of the presenter’s experience in organisations transitioning to Agile.

The importance of governance in Portfolios, Programs, and Projects (3P) is reflected in part by the development of standards for governance (PMI, 2016) as well as by the increasing attention being paid to governance in management/academic literature, and in practice. At the same time, organizations increasingly aim to improve their innovation capabilities, enabling them to survive in today’s dynamic, competitive environment. However, there is little guidance in research literature on whether and how 3P governance can be designed to support and promote innovation. The escalating importance of project delivery in organizations, especially for innovation, further highlights the need for better understanding of the relationship between governance, innovation, and success in 3P.
