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.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
