PMO Flashmob kicked off a new initiative in 2017
The PMO Competency Framework
Over the last few years at PMO Flashmob, we’ve had countless conversations about the lack of competency framework and assessment available to the people who work in PMOs.
What happens today is most PMOs in an organisation that are concerned with PMO career paths and development tend to develop their own thing. Other organisations just don’t have the bandwidth or indeed the knowledge to do their own thing.
It’s a shame.
We can talk about the PMO becoming more mature and be concerned about the value the PMO brings to the business – and we definitely should be having the conversation about how the PMO builds the capability of the people who work within it and how businesses can retain those people.
We propose that in the spirit of PMO Flashmob we should organise a working group that will enable us to begin work looking at the PMO Competency Framework.
So what next?
We have started to pull together a group of PMO practitioners who are interested in getting involved in the Working Group to create a generic PMO Competency Framework which covers a range of PMO roles.
The posts here are a record of the work we’re under taking and you’re encouraged to get involved too.
Recent work appears first
Next working group meeting takes place on Thursday 28th September in London
