Sourcing strategy Agile enablement consultancy emergn has launched its AgilePMO service offering. This product is designed to align an enterprise customers’ IT project demand with delivery supply, both internal and across all outsourcing vendors working with the enterprise, to overcome the major industry issue of disconnected global delivery practices.

Using Agile principles as a foundation for the PMO, emergn builds a sustainable model that cuts across any IT project, providing transparency, a common framework for planning focused on business value, budget management and forecasting, efficient risk mitigation and issue escalation processes. It also establishes a balance between project needs and provider abilities.

The emergn consultants work directly with all decision-makers in an enterprise to define existing project value to the business and evaluate current internal delivery capability and outsourcing practices. Each provider will then be evaluated through a matrix consisting of contract type, team skill level, development methodology and other key project fulfillment factors. From these assessments, emergn will identify shortcomings and correct them by embedding an Agile culture across the project, with a dedicated team to manage the day-to-day operation of the AgilePMO.

The AgilePMO is part of emergn’s unified sourcing model, which provides a framework to help plan, build, and run centralized or distributed models to achieve a better sourcing strategy that help companies address the continuous challenges of the industry. Unique to emergn, this model combines Agile enablement services, right-sourcing strategy, and project delivery through a best-choice provider network throughout China, India, and Eastern Europe and Russia. The unified sourcing model helps alleviate the misalignment between business, IT, and service providers.
