We’ve all seen the statistics that the average lifespan of a PMO is between 2-4 years. Why are these PMOs failing? Research points to several factors including Insufficient authority, unclear scope, self-serving rather than supporting, and overly bureaucratic processes and governance.

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.

You can open numerous books and observe two dozen ways to stand up a PMO. And reviewing PMO maturity model tools will lead you to believe that a more “mature” PMO is better. However, none of these books or tools know your business or your culture, and there is only one PMO that is right for you—and only you can determine what that is!

When Will We Start Talking to the Right PMO People?

by Andy Jordan

The vast majority of articles you can find that talk about helping PMOs succeed are not addressing the right audience. If you want your PMO to excel, you have to get people involved who are enablers of that success. And that’s not just the PMO head!

Conducting a PMO Health Check (Part 1)

by Michael Wood

PMOs are tasked with managing the project assets of the organization throughout the project lifecycle. Thus, it stands to reason that the health-check process should evaluate the PMO in terms of how well it functions in context to that lifecycle.

Grocery Shopping for PMOs

You're Only as Agile as You Feel

by Mark Mullaly, Ph.D., PMP

We keep positioning agile as an either/or proposition. And we do that in particular when we think about agile as compared to waterfall. There is an assumption that not only is agile different, but that agile has to be different. And that's a problem.

PMOs: Delivering Value in an Imperfect World
