The biggest impact a PMO can have may well be before projects ever start, but is that how your PMO operates? If PMOs took a “grocery shopping” approach to project selection and allocation, the results would be far better than they currently are.

The Purpose Driven PMO: Establish long-term PMO success by aligning your Purpose to Organizational Strategy
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. How do we overcome these challenges and build PMOs which provide value and stand the test of time?
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 rise of game-changing technology has spurred a frenzied race for organizations to undertake digital transformation. Project leaders and the project management office (PMO) have a key role to play in this transformation—but only if they’re willing to evolve. Join PMI’s Vasili Lebotesis, Payal Kondisetty and Kelley Hunsberger as they provide highlights from the research conducted in partnership with Accenture, Forbes Insights and Capgemini to learn how organizations are managing the impact of disruptive technologies—and embracing the change that they bring.
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!
PMOs are an integral part an organization’s strategic plan for implementing improvement, keeping the business running, and directing change. The PMO has a wide range of responsibilities with a diverse set of stakeholders and an ever increasing demand for status. Thus, many PMOs are transforming into “Strategic PMOs” and assumed the role of defining the, and reporting the status of, the clear line of sight from Strategic Intent to Project Outcomes.

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.
Too many organizations don’t connect the dots between strategy and the need for the organization to pursue an informed, aligned and enlightened approach to the implementing of those strategies.
너무 많은 조직은 전략과 조직이 전략 구현에 대한 정보를 제공하고 체계적으로 조율 한 접근 방식을 추구 할 필요성 사이의 점을 연결하지 않습니다.
Many organizations began their PMO journey in IT, but the traditional IT PMO is changing significantly. What does that mean for those PMOs, for IT and for organizations as a whole?
It would be satisfying to say we could simply remove those processes that add no value. In many cases, those processes had a worthwhile goal, they just failed to accomplish it. To solve this, PMOs can learn from the product development idea of a minimum viable product.
There is a lot of focus on PMO value and accountability at the moment, but how does that translate into work? What should a PMO actually be doing on a daily basis?
