IDC PeerScape: Practices for a Successful Agile Cross-Functional PMO

IDC PeerScape: Practices for a Successful Agile Cross-Functional PMOThis IDC PeerScape introduces the best practices for implementing an agile cross-functional PMO for digital transformation. This study is intended to help IT and LOB executives heading up the PMO identify the best practices and key issues that PMOs are typically beset with.Digital transformation is as much as about technology as it is about people. It is not about mere investments in technology but about changing the way a business is run or operated, involving and cutting across all functions of an organization. The complexities that arise from this phenomenon cannot be underestimated."The largest impact on the role and function of the PMO will come from the growth in Internet of Things (IoT) applications in the enterprise. This change is about a change in how projects are approached — the teams that are forming, who is in them, and how they are funded. The complexities of IoT implementations are unprecedented. Not only are some of the technologies new, the workflows are also different. Measurements of success are different. What's been shown to work, however, are the partnerships within the PMO that enable collaboration, information sharing, resource distribution, and investment," says Chris Morris, vice president for IDC's Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) Cloud Services.
