Course Overview

As agile delivery methods gain popularity at Portfolio, Program and Project Team levels in all sizes of organisations, the relevance of a traditional PMO has been called into question. However, consider the fundamental role of a PMO: to protect the investments that an organisation makes in strategic initiatives and projects to ensure the best possible value / outcomes are achieved. This is done via a series of frameworks and controls that provide appropriate rigour for the delivery method applied and ultimately provide input into key decision making by executives.

Most organisations use a blend of Predictive (e.g. Waterfall) and Agile (e.g. Scrum, SAFe®) approaches to deliver initiatives. Today’s PMO must therefore be able to support a range of delivery approaches and will need to strike the right balance between having a clear governance structure and oversight and allowing teams the flexibility to innovate, with a consistency of language.

The aim of this course is to explore how to effectively establish the structures, processes, and practices required to support both Agile and Waterfall portfolios, which in turn will help optimise value delivered.

This course will enable participants to:

  • Implement practices that allow the organisation to effectively prioritise and manage their Agile or Hybrid portfolio
  • Establish processes and practices that ensure the right level of accountability and governance is applied throughout projects
  • Establish appropriate measures for each project to enable executives to make informed, data driven decisions
  • Provide a consistent reporting framework to provide real-time visibility into performance, financials, and investments
  • Explore common challenges encountered when running a Hybrid PMO
