Moving Towards Agile Project Delivery for Large Non-Software Related Projects
Moving to a more agile way of working is not easy. Most infrastructure projects are still delivered via a linear Waterfall approach of design, build, test, and commission through large and often disparate teams. Within these projects, PMOs are indispensable for Project Managers in ensuring they have the right resources, achieve progress towards goals, and deliver expected benefits.
This webinar will look at how PMOs can go further and be a driver of transformation. We will ask the question whether Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) can be used to scale Agile to large programs of work that are not software related. We will look at how Agile PMOs can help Project Managers follow an iterative development approach to planning and delivery. To do this, PMOs themselves will need to adapt to this ever-changing dynamic to be able to keep up with shorter delivery cycles and shifting priorities. Projects can then be driven by agile teams that use continuous feedback loops to adjust their course and make incremental deliveries.
We will look at how the PMO can support Agile project delivery and how the PMO can support overall business agility to adopt some of the Agile mindset. The role of Sponsors will change to support this Agile delivery by measuring benefits and value being delivered and shifting focus from gateway methodology-driven project execution. As self-managing teams progress with delivery, how do changes and variations get approved? Similarly, how do the processes for risk draw-down need to change to allow project teams to be more nimble and the Project Manager to respond to day-to-day basis without escalation?
