About the Presentation

This presentation will explain how agile techniques fit into the Project and Program Management Office disciplines essential for large scale projects and Enterprise Portfolio Management. We begin with understanding why large complex projects fail and what agile can contribute to improve their success rate. We explore the changes needed in existing PMBOK knowledge areas such as Planning, Monitoring & Control, and Communication to leverage agile strategies and techniques for large complex systems management. We conclude with some specific recommendations that Organizations can adopt to operate more efficiently and produce value faster at the Enterprise level. We will introduce the Franchise Model as an innovative organizational structure for the PMO and the Enterprise.
