I'm thrilled to have this section in place and hope it adds some great discussions to the debates which occur during the workshops. It's a thrill to be part of these events, even though I have to put up with Mark :-)
we (PMO) are trying to manage cascade traditional projects (data center, network infrastructure,...) together with agile (mostly dev.), and building a hybrid PMO could be our way out to make all PM activities start running with no major conflicts - first step :-)
Any reference (book, sites, articles...) you would recommend me to start with?
David, great question. Obviously I am a big fan of the business-driven PMO books and setup approach which is inherently hybrid and that seeks to first establish the leadership team determined, not PMO determined, purpose of the PMO in terms of specific ends to be achieved and then, and only then, the PMO determined business plan, subject to leadership team approval, which provides the means to the ends. Kind of basic, yet apparently kryptonite to most PMO practitioners. By way of books, you might find Adaptive Project Framework by Robert Wysocki a helpful reference. Also, have a look at the various articles both pro and con on Gartner's Bi-Modal IT. If you need a good read for folks new to Agile, Coaching Agile Teams by Lyssa Adkins is very good. Hope this helps and that we hear and learn from others..!
Thanks so much, Mark!
I just got Robert´s. Reading the contents is already a boost!
Adaptive project framework, case studies,...
Great...! Everyone seems to be heading in this direction, hope you can keep us posted on your progress. Good luck..!
Thank you Mark for sharing the references
