Speakers: Pramod Chivate & Monique Mckeon

As an increasing number of organizations move towards Agile, they must adopt ways of working that embrace change and preserve value creation. At the highest levels, this new and important way of working often runs counter to the existing mindsets, paradigms, and processes related to portfolio management.  However, when you look into the details, many of the traditional essential elements are still essential, some are not.  The ones that are simply implemented more frequently, allowing for change as business demands warrant, which is essential to embracing change and preserving value creation.

Agile can ultimately increase the value of the PMO and maintain its primary objective: returning benefits to the larger enterprise in a measurable, predictable, and efficient manner. The three elements of the PMO that are universally valuable, offering actionable insight into how organizations can carry these elements into a large-scale Agile transformation:

• Governance

• Return on Investment

• Delivery Approaches

In this presentation, Monique McKeon and Pramod Chivate will explore these elements, what has changed, and what will feel more familiar, even comforting in the Agile world, including a look at the roles in each of these processes and how organizations in the transformation to Agile can adopt the portfolio management processes to align with the new delivery processes to ultimately drive continuous value realization.
