Optimising the Hybrid PMO

2 Days – Ultimo/Via Zoom

There is more choice than ever around which methodology or delivery framework is the ‘right one’. The truth is that most organisations now deliver a mix of product and project based initiatives in a variety of ways. Product based initiatives naturally lend themselves to more agile based delivery methods like SCRUM, SAFe and Discipled Agile. Often these Agile methods are used alongside an SDLC or a more traditional Project Management Framework.

This mix of delivery methods can make life difficult for PMOs. Leadership teams want data and delivery assurance regardless of delivery method and so PMOs have to flex their requirements in order to be able to satisfy reporting needs.

In this two day course, we will explore how to define and implement the guideline processes that will give you the right tools and techniques to support every type of project delivered under any type of framework.

Course objectives Include:

* Establish the appropriate blend of governance and controls for each type of project or initiative

* Develop processes and work instructions to enable a
standardised approach to delivering projects and initiatives

* Drive consistency with both delivery teams and senior
stakeholders
