The next PMO Mini-Masterclass in London takes place on Thursday 25th May at Actionaid’s UK Head Office at 33-39 Bowling Green Lane, London EC1R 0BJ from 6pm.
This session is all about the PMO supporting the organisation’s move to delivering programmes.
Encouraging levels of senior management engagement and success in project delivery is very often underpinned by consistent governance and methods established and maintained by the PMO. Buoyed by this success, it may seem a simple step to expand this governance and method to programme delivery, but how straightforward is this step and what are the potential pit falls?
Somebody who knows first-hand is Rod Sowden. Rod is an experienced Programme Manager himself and, as Lead Author of Management Successful Programmes (MSP)® and P3M3®, has helped many organisations develop their programme management delivery capability.
At this Mini Masterclass, Rod will take us through the key considerations and challenges of introducing programme management into an organisation including:
the new perspectives required from senior management (sponsoring a programme rather than a project),
introduction of new roles (including the role of the Business Change Manager),
additional skills and capabilities required of the delivery team (can all project managers become programme managers?)
and, most importantly from our perspective, how the PMO can make it a success.
