The Lean-Agile PMO \\ Leeds – 30th November

The next PMO Flashmob in the North takes place in Leeds. We’re being hosted by our great friends and PMO Flashmob supporters, QA.

The session takes place on Thursday 30th November – starting from 6pm and lasting until 8pm.

The Lean-Agile PMO

Evaluating project status – a new skill for the Lean-Agile PMO?

The evening session starts with  a Pub-Quiz exercise and develop the concepts a PMO should adopt to evaluate the status of Agile initiatives.

This session will introduce the Lean-Agile PMO concept and how its role may differ from a tradition PMO.

The Lean-Agile PMO has been conceived so that it can simultaneously support activities delivered using both agile and traditional methodologies.  However, in doing so, it has been found necessary to amend the traditional PMO focus.With lean focussing on customer satisfaction, reduction of waste and continuous improvement and Agile providing just enough services just in time, using a collaborative culture in order to ensure that activities can be delivered securely and demonstrably as fast as possible – what does the Lean-Agile PMO do?

We will also cover the role of the PMO in accelerating project delivery.  We’ll look at risks, benefits and initiative performance. We will also consider the implications for a PMO evaluating agile status.  Finally we’ll look at Agile risk management and how it may relate to traditional projects; the importance of benefits in agile and the implications for waterfall activities and find the answers to the question –  are they any different?
