Agile Development Conference East 2011: The Agile PMO: From Process Police to Adaptive Governance

Sanjiv Augustine, LitheSpeed, LLC

Although success stories from individual agile teams on single projects abound, agile adoptions encounter significant challenges scaling to multiple teams on multiple projects. The Project Management Office (PMO), which often remains poorly defined in agile environments, offers the perfect place to oversee and adapt to govern your agile adoption. Sanjiv Augustine shares success stories from industry-leading organizations that are scaling agile to large projects and across many smaller projects. These organizations have developed PMO managers who bring lean discipline to project prioritization, track and monitor the value delivery across projects, support stable teams for higher productivity, and enable mature process adoption. Rather than focusing more on process compliance than business results, they help teams carefully and adaptively apply metrics, tools, and high-level standardization to their agile teams. Learn how PMOs can lead agile teams by serving them and scale agile adoption across the enterprise.
