PRLog - Feb. 7, 2012 - LOS ALTOS, Calif. -- Los Altos, CA – The PMO Practice announced today the release of The PMO Practice Booklets: Best Practice series for executives, senior professionals in program management and organizations responsible for bringing products to the market.
The PMO Practice and author Leslie Magsalay release three compelling articles for Program Management professionals and the Executives that lead them. Product Lifecycle Processes vs. Framework: 16 Best Practices walks PMO professionals through how to maximize product delivery effectiveness using Product Lifecycle Management. The 16 Best Practices start with the critical Customer Focus and continue through the importance of Phase Exits. This article expands PLM beyond the boundaries of development to include the full “Concept to End-of–Life”
Also targeted for PMO professionals, Magsalay de-mystifies Agile methodology in her article Product Lifecycle and Agile. By explaining the methodology in its practical application as it relates to PLM, she clarifies where and how this methodology is used most effectively and differentiates it from other currently used development processes like Waterfall. She details the shift in thinking required for XP by using a unique hypothetical team dialog that allows readers to visualize the new team dynamic. Last, but not least, she maps the process to traditional PLM phases to clarify their relationship.
For executives guiding the PMO and Product Managers engaged in defining and maintaining the product portfolio, Magsalay has provided a high-impact article on The PMO Best Practices: Ideation/
As always, the author, Leslie Magsalay, draws on her personal experience and leading sources to cite examples and create scenarios that help Program Management professionals better understand the skills required and methods available to get the most out of their efforts on every project and program. She continues to deliver pragmatic insight and effective tools and methods to get PMOs to their highest level of performance.
