  3. 3. #FuturePMO
  4. 4. #FuturePMO What is Agile? • In the context of project management: Agile project management is an iterative development methodology that values human communication and feedback, adapting to change, and producing working results.
  5. 5. #FuturePMO Huh? Traditional/ Linear/ Predictable/ Waterfall Agile/ Iterative Instead of this: • Doing a lot of work upfront to: - Define all requirements - Agree entire scope - Make detailed plans for the entire work • Delivering the entire output at the end We do this: • Involve the customer throughout the project to continuously; - Idenfity the most important requirement right now - Plan the most important work right now - Do the most important work right now • Deliver increments of the final product as they become ready/ usable
  6. 6. #FuturePMO Linear vs Agile Linear methods: the steady elephant Agile methods: the nimble cat increments Key to success: understand what work needs an elephant vs what needs a cat!
  7. 7. #FuturePMO What Agile is NOT • A magical solution that cures all problems • A “get out of jail” card that allows the teams to skip planning, reporting etc… • An easy fix • A new process to replace the old one • That new thingamajig that will go out of fashion together with skinny jeans and tiktok dances
  8. 8. #FuturePMO Agile vs agility An organisation needs to be able to adapt according to the needs of its environment. And as a result of the belief that Agile helps projects to deliver quicker, many organisations that request Agile be implemented actually need more agility in the way that they manage projects. They do not need Agile at all!  Little hierarchy  A common purpose  A focus on empowered people  Simple, adaptable models  A culture of innovation  Risk threshold Wellingtone Changing the PMO Mindset eBook
  9. 9. #FuturePMO The Agile Manifesto (for Software Development) We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value: That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more. 2001 Page 9 Individuals and interactions over Processes and tools Working software (product) over Comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration over Contract negotiation Responding to change over Following a plan
  10. 10. #FuturePMO Agile Elements Page 10 Mindset Values Principles Practices Tools and Processes Agile Practice Guide, PMI
  11. 11. #FuturePMO How can we (Wellingtone) make a difference? 11 70/20/10 70% of learning comes from doing (i.e trying, practicing, experiencing) 20% of learning comes from other people, e.g coaching 10% of learning comes from formal training
  12. 12. #FuturePMO Question: How do we create a course that let’s people experience Agile?
  13. 13. #FuturePMO Answer: We deliver the course as an Agile project
  14. 14. #FuturePMO In practice Instead of: Giving the delegates a set agenda with content to take the delegates through We do: Let the delegates create the agenda by creating and prioritizing a course backlog
  15. 15. #FuturePMO In the course the delegates: • Write user stories (that become the course backlog) for what they want/ need to learn • Prioritise the user stories based on what is most important, right now • Learn concepts through application • Review and revise the backlog with new user stories and/or new priorities based on updated knowledge This means: even without doing the “formal training stuff” delegates experience how to work in an Agile approach and they see the processes, practices and DISCIPLINE required to make Agile a success. They see that Agile is not just swapping one process for another. They see that Agile is not for everyone, or everything
  16. 16. #FuturePMO Let’s give it a go! uncertainty complexity Arrange a 1 day conference for PMO professionals that will be attended by PMO Practitioners at all levels, from all over the globe, and brings together speakers who will push the boundaries of your PMO thinking to help your PMO work smarter.
  17. 17. #FuturePMO Step 1: Build a backlog User Story Definition: Short, simple descriptions of a feature told from the perspective of the person who desires the new capability. Page 17 Backlog User Stories
  18. 18. #FuturePMO User story template https://www.scrumdesk.com/how-to-write-a- requirement-in-a-user-story-format-correctly/ As a < type of user >, I want < some goal > so that < some reason >. Example: As a portfolio manager I want to understand the difference between traditional and Agile methods so that I can determine which approach is most appropriate for different projects Helps identify the specific user Helps identify the specific feature/ requirement Identifies how we know the solution is good enough
  19. 19. #FuturePMO Your task Use the user story template on your table to write a user story the describes what you need from the conference The are no awards for good hand writing, but all the same please do your best
  20. 20. #FuturePMO Thank You  If you are planning to introduce Agile practices make sure you have clearly defined WHY (i.e what value are you expecting or what problem are you solving)  Give your teams the best change for success by ensuring they get training, coaching and a chance to learn by doing  Karin Maule  Karin.maule@wellingtone.co.uk  www.wellingtone.co.uk  https://www.linkedin.com/in/karin-maule- pmp-msp-6b295b26/ #FuturePMO

Editor's Notes

  • “The ability to move quickly and easily” Cambridge Dictionary

    Characteristics of agile organisations:
    Little hierarchy within its structures
    A common purpose and belief system
    A focus on empowered people, their development, and their well-being
    Simple, adaptable processes and governance models
    A culture supportive of innovation and learning
    Higher than average risk threshold
  • 4 values
    The agile manifesto is a set of factors that are considered common on successful projects.
    These successful factors are not entirely new to our industry.
    The agile manifesto does not prescribe specific practices, reaching a wide consensus on these would be very hard.

  • Which are more visible?
    Which are more powerful?
    Being agile vs doing agile
