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.

Who Should Attend?

Practitioners who will benefit from this course include: 

  • PMO Directors / Managers (e.g. GPMO, EPMO, CoE, etc.) 
  • PMO Practitioners - such as Governance Managers and Analysts 
  • Portfolio and Program Managers who perform PMO-type functions 
  • Coordinators and Reporting Analysts in a PMO environment 

This course aims to:

  • Provide a practical guide for PMO Practitioners who are introducing agile to the delivery environment, or those wanting to uplift delivery outcomes in a Hybrid Delivery Environment (that supports both predictive and agile delivery teams).
  • Outline a number of changes that PMOs will need to make when moving to a hybrid environment, along with a series of techniques and approaches that can be applied to achieve improvements both in the PMO and in the delivery community.

This course will enable participants to:

  • Identify the critical success factors in establishing an effective Hybrid Agile PMO
  • Implement practices that allow the organisation to effectively prioritise and manage a Hybrid Agile PMO 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 Agile PMO

The course focuses on organisations that operate a Hybrid Delivery environment and assumes prior PMO knowledge.

The course does not provide details on how to setup/run a traditional PMO or how to do agile. Rather, the course offers a practical guide that can be used to achieve PMO and delivery-based improvements within your organisation.

This course is therefore aimed at PMO and other relevant Practitioners who are operating in a Hybrid Delivery Environment and those that have responsibility for:

  • Delivery Oversight
  • Application of PMO Controls and Services
  • Provision of Support for the Delivery Community

Materials: A comprehensive participant workbook is provided.
