Creating a Lean PMO; Empower People, Enable Flow
Stop getting good at process and start getting good at business! This session is for anyone who is seeking practical, proven techniques to create a Lean Portfolio Management Office. Participants will explore the pre-requisites for a Lean PMO, the role of the PMO in agile delivery, and a high level overview of a Portfolio Kanban System that balances the speed of agile delivery with the accountability and transparency needed by organizations for complex programs. Along the way, you will hear details of how a dynamic product company evolved to a people-centric, flow-based PMO.
Outline/structure of the Session
This is a presentation (with a case study as an example) of how a PMO can evolve to partner with delivery teams, rather than govern from the outside.
The breakdown of this talk is streamlined for this session:
5 m. overview of case study (Why a Lean PMO?)
10 m. on the environment, mindset and principles that are pre-requisites for a Lean PMO
20 m. on a high level Portfolio System that provides alignment, transparency, and accountability to an agile organization.
10 m. on the lightweight governance process that can be established to review the artifacts
- Discover the environment that must exist for a Lean Portfolio Management Office (PMO)
- Learn the basics of a Portfolio Kanban system that complements with agile delivery
- Examine how the role of the PMO in practice evolves from management and reporting to empowering people and enabling flow
This talk is designed for anyone who supports or leads a program management office. The target audience is: any Agile practitioner, no matter the role; Project Manager, Program Manager, PMO leaders and executives.
It is helpful to understand the basics of Agile frameworks such as Scrum, but not necessary. Participants will receive the material from the talk.

Have you heard people talking about Test Driven Development (TDD) but never tried it? Now is the time to try! This session will lead its participants through a programming challenge. Don't worry, it's safe. We're going to do a technical version of "follow the leader," where you will do the programming by following along with the session's facilitator. We'll debrief the exercise at the end. Please do bring a laptop or be willing to pair up with someone who does.
We will use the Python programming language, and PythonAnywhere web-based environment to avoid setup and configuration activities. You do NOT need to know Python (or any programming) to participate.
