The Agile PMO: Can It Really Exist?

Does an Agile PMO really exist? Can it? How would it work? This session will answer these questions and bring together two seemingly opposing concepts.

We’ll go back to basics to understand the fundamental purpose of PMOs, and how they benefit projects and organizations. Once we recognize the overall mission and vision of an Agile PMO, we will design a PMO Charter that will show how it adds value. Finally, we’ll discuss how to gain buy-in for such a critical function.
