The Agile Framework and the PMO

Successful Agile change comes from within an organisation and this class shows how the the PMO becomes a catalyst during the change; allowing the PMO to participate, support, or influence external consultants as necessary. This class also acts as a foundation for a PMO seeking to lead an Agile Transformation with further study and experience gained from Agile at the team level.

All scaling frameworks share some common patterns: Scrum at the team level; many teams sharing a backlog; planning is done collaboratively across teams; and the general principles of pull, self-organisation and continuous improvement.

This class is designed to give an overview of the main Agile at Scale frameworks. To identify the unique elements of each so that PMOs may decide how the Agile Frameworks can be used and governed. By way of introduction, the class explores what is meant by Agile stepping beyond the Agile Values and Principles identified in the Agile Manifesto.

Finally, this class will discuss some of the considerations needed to the implement Agile at Scale in an organisation.

Following this course participants will:

  • Understand the key features of the leading Agile at Scale Frameworks.
  • Recognise how the PMO needs to adapt and support each of the Frameworks.
