The Critical Need for Cross-Functional Support


As organizations undertake agile transformation, evolving how lines of business collaborate is essential. This report looks at how a transforming enterprise requires more flexible and adaptive ways of working, and the impact on the relationship between business functions and project management.

We surveyed business owners who initiate or commission major projects. We also interviewed PMO directors for a parallel perspective on why achieving agility and using agile practices require cross-functional collaboration and support.

The key findings:

  • Business owners play a critical part in achieving greater agility
  • Functions with high agility operate differently than other functions within their organization, and receive more organizational support
  • An organization’s culture can foster agility within lines of business
  • PMO support is critical in creating agility at the line-of-business level
