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.

Chapter Dinner Meetings

It is anticipated that each monthly dinner meeting planning process commences at least several months in advance.  The Chapter Dinner Meeting consists of several requirements.   For example, the Program Committee strives to have meetings at various locations located throughout our Chapter area.  Once a location is designated then the availability is checked and verified for the number of attendees forecasted for a Dinner Meeting. Attendee count typically ranges from 80 to 130 attendees, and the location should have the ability to expand if the number of attendees should increase due to the speaker or subject being presented.   The location should also have access to parking facilities at minimal or no cost.  Since our chapter has hosted several past dinner meetings, the program committee does review the subject and insures we are not repeating a subject on a frequent basis.  We always welcome our Chapter Members comments and suggestions via a feedback survey, which is distributed at the conclusion of each event.  If a member cannot send their comments on the survey they can send their comments directly to Frank McKeown VP Professional Development at or via cell at 917-295-9419.
