Project Management Office (PMO)
Agile PMO Explained
We believe Agile PMO is the ‘consciousness’ of an organisation.
The Agile PMO function is a strategic business partner to your organisation and its team members, assists your change and transformation initiatives, influences the behaviour of your people and warrants the delivery of your strategy with more certainty in the outcome.
The Agile PMO function underpins an organisation’s transformation by ensuring all business changes are managed in a consistent and controlled manner. PMOs can offer a range of services depending on the maturity of the function and the requirement of the organisation.
Agile Methodology: The common services that a Agile PMO provides on a day-to-day basis include:
Act as the central point of contact, provide relevant and accurate information to the right people to enable efficient decision-making. Engage and work closely with all stakeholders to achieve the programme’s objectives, accommodating the business in realtime.
Establish and maintain programme and project plans. Warrant the accuracy and integrity of the plans and measurement metrics. Maintain oversight for programme delivery, manage programme milestones and dependencies, and report on progress against plan to management team during the project lifecycle.
Set up effective self-organizing, an adaptive programme governance and reporting structure, clarify roles and accountability, embed best practice and establish consistency and transparency in project governance and reporting. Ensured project adherence to governance standards and requirements.
Orchestrate and implement change control across the programme, define change control process, categorise and manage change requests and monitor them to be assessed the prioritised as appropriate. From sprint planning to project management tools and framework, we can advise on solutions.
Consolidate delivery risks and mitigation plans to warrant smooth delivery of programme, planning meetings and continuous improvements by assisting the RAIDs meeting to communicate and address programme-level risks and issues, ensure critical.
Manage and allocate programme resources for product development based on timeline, costs, availability and what-if analysis. Work with stakeholders to reconcile resource conflicts, resolve resources over/under-all locations to optimise resource utilisation, define roles across a team for functionality within.
Manage programme’s financial activities, templates and tasks/roles, including budget submission, monthly actual and re-forecast reporting, and benefit realisation updates with agile project management methodology for the project team.
With each development cycle, the aim is to establish quality assurance, project management framework and ensure programme deliverables are correct and fit for purpose. Understand assurance requirement and warrant programme compliance with minimum disruption to delivery.
