Resting above Governance is Agile Project Management. In most organizations, the project management role is a critical business function when implementing or maturing your Agile tool set. I’ll cut right to the chase and tell you the three reasons why.
Fortunately for your company, I cut my teeth in project and program management, and I was always looking at ways to make the process leaner for my clients – even before PMI jumped on the “Agile PM” train! Project Management and ePMO functions break down into "knowledge areas", and each of these knowledge areas have specific inputs, process expectations, and outputs. It is within those process expectations that Agile Project Management functions are modularly implemented at your company. These processes affect both downstream Agile Engineering and upstream Agile Governance – so it is very important that we don’t neglect this critical business function.
