Although agile has been widely accepted in most organizations, it is not uncommon to feel an array of emotions or have differing opinions on the topic. Agile can mean different things to different people (especially different roles in the organization), but the reason for adopting agile is clear – faster delivery, quicker response to customer needs, and maximum delivery of value.
However, agile proposes a variety of challenges for PMOs and executives – poor understanding of agile principles, fear of misaligned projects, or lack of resource visibility, to name a few. The focus on minimal long term planning does not provide the measurement capabilities or transparency that is required to operate a “traditional PMO” – especially if agile projects are managed in separate system like JIRA or Team Foundation Server (TFS). Additionally, this does not provide the business much to rely on for project delivery and therefore timing and final outcome can all be risky and unpredictable. However, the pros have proven to outweigh the cons, and when agile is done right, it is known to increase product quality by up to 63% and reduce time to market by up to 37%.
No debate: Agile makes organizations more effective than ever, which has led to its increasing popularity and acceptance. However, PMOs and executive management still need visibility into the entire project portfolio – including all of the agile projects – or nobody wins. Beyond just visibility into agile projects, the organization must also build a roadmap that leverages agile principles in the context of managing resources and the portfolio, not just projects. Essentially a framework for what will happen without really knowing.
