  • why there is a big gap (even hostility) between the PMO and Agile communities
  • why executives sometimes believe the PMO is NOT a good candidate to lead agility
  • the missing assets in many Agile transformations that PMOs can bring to the table
  • how to get started if you’re interested in learning how the PMO can best support a shift to Agile
