How News UK transformed its PMO using Agile

Watch how News UK have achieved a significant step-change in performance of their Technology team through the use of PI planning. JCURV were chosen as the transformation partners.

“At News, we had a small PMO which was reactive. Since last September, we have implemented PI Planning and the changes around this have enabled us to create a more strategic PMO.”

Gill Bennet, Portfolio and Transformation Manager, Kirsteen King, Director of Business operations and Helen van der Straaten, PMO Manager at News UK share how News UK used PI Planning to transform their PMO.

PI Planning is a way to approach quarterly planning work and improve collaboration across the whole business.

Aside from a massive culture and mind shift in how they all approached communicating, collaborating and planning our work, it provided an opportunity to review our tooling. With PI Planning changing how the whole business works, the PMO team significantly grew to accommodate the positive shift in how they worked – from planning to reporting.

The PMO team are moving to a new phase looking at how to streamline their ways of working, improve transparency across the business and collaborate between everyone.
