re: Project Management Offices: A Waste Of Money?
To further illustrate findings from the Hackett Group, InformationWeek's recent Enterprise Project Management Survey showed a nine-point decrease in the percentage of organizations with a PMO compared with 2010 (60% vs. 69%). Furthermore, the percentage using formal project management methodologies dropped from 70% to 58%.

Chris, absolutely, speed is a component, I think that's the problem with having task keepers who aren't business savvy: you end up with process that may or may not be necessary. Few of us would say that a business-necessary process is a waste of time or a slowdown; but most of us would say that a process without a point is a waste of time.

I'm surprised speed -- or rather slowing down the process -- isn't cited as a risk, Jonathan. a lot of times I hear agile methodology brought into the picture, it's because the existing system of requirements and reviews is too slow. Or it can't accommodate a reality in which the full specs aren't clear until the development begins -- iterative development of a new product, with IT and product marketing and product engineering teams in one group.
