Limited Capacity seats available

As organizations realize the benefits of agile development and start to transform into agile enterprises, traditional PMO's often struggle to understand their new value proposition and shed traditional governance frameworks and mindsets. This workshop will walk through a Discovery exercise to explore how the Agile PMO delivers value and a rebranding exercise into transforming the traditional PMO framework and practices into a high performing Product Delivery Office (PDO) or even a Value Management Office (VMO). Workshop outcomes will include a deeper understanding of how to transform your PMO into a catalyst for learning and enabling your enterprise transformation.
This workshop will be highly interactive with the following agenda:
1. 15 minute presentation on how Agile PMO's create value (with an emphasis on cultivating an organizational growth mindset and understanding what changes and why)
2. 10 minute table exercise of crafting a new value proposition for your agile PMO using Value Proposition Design combined with an Appreciative Inquiry approach
3. 20 minute table exercise of crafting a new vision, value model and change canvas for transforming your PMO into a PDO or VMO
4. 20 minutes for table presentations and idea sharing where participants from each table will share their top ideas and challenges while facilitators affinity map and mind map
5. 10 minute synthesis of ideas about how participates might take action to apply on the job; Q&A and wrap

Learning Outcomes:
  • 1. Recognizing challenges and recognizing pitfalls of applying traditional PMO practices in an Agile transformation
  • 2. Emergent thinking and cutting edge techniques for taking the organization to the next level
  • 3. How to create a culture of value and a clear line of sight to teams and individuals
  • 4. Understand that the role of an Agile PMO is to transform uncertainty into knowledge and value through setting the foundation for a learning organization
