Agile and the PMO: Can’t we all just get along?
Led by: Alicia R. McLain, MA, CSP, PMP

Registration at this venue is limited to 60 attendees. Register now to reserve your spot!

Part of the challenge of these co-existing ideas is a perceived clash of responsibilities. In this session, we’ll review different types of PMO structures and explore ways Agile frameworks can be complimentary towards the execution of your company’s products and services. Once we better understand levels of planning and where the different types of PMOs fit we can appreciate how these two powerful organizational structures can work together peacefully, in one system.

In this session we’ll review the 4 main types of PMO structures and where Agile plays a role in the big picture of things. We'll discuss:

  • Definitions
  • Review of PMO Structures
  • Levels of Planning
  • Agile Frameworks
  • Tools
