The Agile PMO – Practical Value Driven Change Leadership in Projectsand Portfolios


Michael Nir


The Agile PMO – Practical Value Driven Change Leadership 50 percent of Project Management Offices (PMO) are terminated in 2 years. Yet, we repeat the same mistakes in our implementations! We use generic project control processes to stifle project and product delivery; focusing on cost, time, and scope, rather than leading our projects to deliver value. In this presentation we discuss an alternative model for a value driven PMO, as an integrator, enabler, differentiator, and change agent, in business development and the organization.

Key learning: We must deliver value to the organization. Value isn’t templates, tools and processes; rather, it is the ability to finish the right projects faster!
