#104 | Jeff Wood - Transforming outdated PMO practices with Agile ways of working
Show Notes

Jeff Wood has over 20+ years of experience in leading transformational change including the implementation of PMOs within both the public and private sectors. Love making a difference to organisations and the people within priding myself on strong servant-leadership, efficient and effective service design, delivery of complex portfolios, programmes and projects, and development of people. Jeff is now leading a team of professionals in one of the UK's largest water companies.

In this episode with Jeff, I explore:

  • How to transition outdated PMO methods and models and deliver using agile release trains with delivery not against 
  • How the PMO prioritises their work with stakeholders
  • Change of metrics to progress vs commitment
  • Managing risks 
  • How we record and apply lessons for future epics 
  • Remote working changes and the impacts 
  • Building great teams 
  • And much more...
