    This week The PMO Podcast™ Featured Story presents, "Is the term Agile PMO an oxymoron?" presented by Mark Perry (about Mark), host of The PMO Podcast™. These days were are hearing more and more about the Agile PMO. Have you heard that term before, the Agile PMO? Do you, like some, believe that PMOs should seek to adopt agile software development techniques, or do you like others, think that the term Agile PMO is an oxymoron?

    The PMO Podcast™ Points Memo presents, “Should software development be managed as a project?” Recently, I had an opportunity to meet a leading agile software developer and agile blogger. This expert software developer espouses with passion the concept that software development is a craft. It is art, if you will. Software development is not a process like manufacturing. Nor is it an engineering practice like building a house or a bridge. And as such, software development should not be managed like a project at all. Or should it? 

    The PMO Podcast™ Mailbag answers a listener question about whether the business case or the project charter is to be prepared first.
