In a highly connected world, surrounded by many changes, companies need to adapt to remain competitive in the market. Many of the initiatives occur through projects, that need to be dynamic to meet the business need combined with the organization’s strategic planning. The Project Management Office (PMO) in this scenario has the role of supporting the organization with tools and techniques to overcome this changes and ensure alignment with the organization’s strategic initiatives. This paper presents an acting model for an Agile PMO putting the PMO at the center of the organizational changes being it the catalyst of information and the disseminator of good practices and knowledge to sustain the changes.
