Really Learning Lessons – PMO Mini-Masterclass – 24th January – London

We’re kicking off the New Year with the first PMO Mini-Masterclass session in London on Thursday 24th January. We’re learning lessons and you’re invited. Most project management approaches incorporate a set of activities often referred to as lessons learned, in which project management professionals try to use the experience gained from running a project to improve the way that they run future projects. A lot of the time, organisations do little or nothing more than document their experience and perhaps file it away, so this is less like lessons learned and more lessons identified, or even worse, lessons ignored. Indeed, ...

PMO Room 101

It’s another 12 Stand Up for PMO Days Before Christmas – number 3! – this time we’re looking at shutting down a PMO. It’s not necessarily a bad thing of course – there are plenty of temporary PMOs out there that get closed down once the project or programme has been delivered. In this session from the PMO Unconference – Stand Up for PMO – we wanted to look at some of the negatives – some of the things that the PMO should be mindful of NOT doing. Take a look at the video session from Mike Belch and the ...

Advancing Your PMO Career

Earlier in the week we hosted the Advancing Your PMO Career webinar. In this webinar we wanted to cover off the different employment types too – so permanent employees and contractors. We also wanted to look at the different career levels. We used the four levels that we’re using over at PMO Learning, so that’s Project Support, PMO Analyst, PMO Manager and Enterprise level PMO Leaders/Directors. At each stage we share insights into what a good PMO practitioner looks like at each of those levels. It doesn’t matter where you are in your career today – or where you want ...

Setting Up a PMO

It’s another of our 12 Stand Up for PMO Days Before Christmas and some insights from our first PMO Unconference from Manchester. With an Unconference the agenda of the day is set by the people who participate. When they arrived at the venue, they were asked to jot down their current challenges around the four areas – setting up a PMO; running a PMO; shutting PMO down and evolving and energising PMO. We then used some of these for the World Cafes. During the course of the day we had two World Cafe breakout sessions – conveniently in the bar ...

I wanted to cut through the research speak and explore what was useful for the PMO practitioner today. You need ...
