Product Details


“A thorough and thoughtful approach to harnessing the power of organizations to deliver at scale, drive demonstrable value, and realize organizational change in a fast-paced, agile world. A good and engaging read and a keeper reference for any organizational leader.”
—Scott Richardson, CIO, Enterprise Data and Analytics, Ally Financial
“How do we effectively transform from a few isolated agile projects to a large set of enterprise products? This is the essential problem addressed by From PMO to VMO. This book blends a firm conceptual base with a set of pragmatic practices to offer a powerful portfolio management process that delivers dynamic product value.” 
—Jim Highsmith, former executive consultant, ThoughtWorks, and coauthor of Edge
“In 2005, Sanjiv Augustine wrote one of the first books to address what it meant to manage an agile project with an empowered, self-organizing team. This new book is equally on the cutting edge in presenting powerful ideas and strategies for transforming project management offices into value management offices.” 
—Mike Cohn, cofounder of the Scrum Alliance and Agile Alliance

From PMO to VMO provides a clear vision of how to make value tangible inside your organization—and more importantly, how to do so with the teams and capabilities that already exist. By the end of this book, you will understand what is valuable, how to measure value, and how to optimize for the flow of value—from idea to your customer.” 
—Evan Leybourn, cofounder and CEO, Business Agility Institute
“This book fills the knowledge gap that exists within so many companies of how to effectively manage a lean-agile delivery system at scale. It is a great achievement of balancing the need for portfolio management and discipline with nimble and fast-moving teams.”
—Thomas Paider, Fortune 100 technology executive and coauthor of The Lean IT Field Guide
From PMO to VMO lays out a road map to expand your agile transformation well beyond the walls of IT. The book provides compelling evidence and concrete actions senior IT leaders should follow to improve the speed, quality, and efficiency of overall delivery.” 
—Kevin G. Fisher, former Associate Vice President, Lean IT, Nationwide Insurance
“A vision and a road map for transforming the traditional PMO into a refreshing model of Agile Value Management Office (Agile VMO) that focuses on measuring, prioritizing, and delivering customer value. If you are a project manager or work with a PMO, this is a must-read to help you navigate the future of organizational agility.”
—Dr. Rashina Hoda, “Voice of Agile Research,” Associate Professor, Monash University
“It is a challenge to keep up with all the significant developments from lean, agile, and design thinking and then see where they fit in a busy PMO. From PMO to VMO lays out all the major building blocks and explains how they fit together to create a modern, functioning VMO that adds value and supports both teams and the business.”
—Mike Griffiths, CEO, Leading Answers Inc., and author of Beyond Agile
“Once again, Sanjiv Augustine is at the vanguard of organizational thinking—always focusing on the why, not just the what and how. This book is a practical road map for adopting an agile, value-driven approach to managing the output of your organization.”
—Max Keeler, Senior Techie at Large, The Motley Fool
“I’ve been leading agile teams for over fifteen years. Each leg in my journey to learn and impart agility has felt like steps toward something better, but steps to what exactly? This excellent book finally explains, with much clarity, the point of it all.” 
—Don Sargent, CTO, Chronicle of Higher Education

“This comprehensive guide combines the distinctions of lean-agile processes and enterprise management science to create a value-driven engine for enterprise agility. As a bonus, it is easily applicable to any agile/scaling framework. Managers and leadership will learn how to shift focus from managing to maximizing value and how to utilize the existing structure for building the desired outcome. Highly recommended.”
—Deepti Jain, founder of AgileVirgin and India Agile Community Development Chief, Agile Alliance
