PMO Flashmob at Your Gaff?

PMO Flashmob takes a break during the summer holidays, behind the scenes we’re sorting out the programme that will take us to the end of 2019 and into the dark and depressing early months of 2020. Back for late 2019 we have the Stand Up for PMO event coming up again – more details on that one soon! For all the other months we’re asking you if you would like to host a PMO Flashmob at your place of work? If you’d like to host a PMO Flashmob event, it’s easier than you probably think.

Inside PMO: KPIs, Metrics and Measures

We launched the latest Inside PMO Report last week at Project Challenge and it literally flew off the shelves. It’s a subject that many PMO practitioners are interested in but gosh! what a tough subject to get to the bottom of. It started with the questions around the PMO adding value [something I don’t like!] and how the PMO can demonstrate that. It didn’t end up there because we had PMO Managers around the table letting us know about the realities of measuring the PMO. And that’s the beauty of the reports we create. It’s not about the textbook approaches; ...

Toolkit Optimisation to Maximise PMO Maturity – Webinar 3rd July

The maturity of the PMO has been a theme area that lots of PMO practitioners have been interested in for a while now. It’s certainly something that is talked about at PMO Flashmob events and at last year’s PMO Conference this theme was explored by Guy Jelley at PPO and it went down a storm. Delegates loved it, so we thought the rest of the PMO Flashmobbers would love it too. Here’s what it is about: The common misconception for PMOs is that by focusing inward on increasing project management maturity, its portfolios, programmes and projects will be delivered more ...

Thirty New Ideas for the PMO

’30 new ideas for the PMO’. A great title, for what was the House of Genius at the last PMO Flashmob event, which means the audience gave their insights and shared their experiences for the benefit of another PMO practitioner with an existing problem. We didn’t record the session like we normally do because Chatham House Rules applied. What we can do is share how it worked and how you too could use the same technique or approach in your organisation. I guess you could call it a type of facilitation technique which could be used with project teams and ...

PMO Lab: Driving Executive Business Decisions

In the final session from the PMO Lab, we’re looking at metrics and measures that ultimately help to drive executive and business decisions. The PMO’s objective as a function which enables decision-making encompasses many areas. It could be the physical mechanisms that would allow decisions to be made, for example, producing reports, updating dashboards and so on. It can mean helping to create an environment where decisions and approvals can flow – the governance side. Even the more behavioural side of decision-making and ensuring staff are well-trained in communications, influence and negotiation. We also cover the final two sessions which ...

PMO Lab: Clean, Consistent and Maintained Project Data

PMO Labs is our way of getting attendees talking about different PMO themes together. We know that every single one of the PMO Flashmobbers has a story to share, an interesting insight from their careers that others would get a great benefit from. In this PMO Lab, part of the session held at Parliament UK, we continued to look at the insights thrown up from the latest Inside PMO report on KPIs, Metrics and Measures. In this lab, we looked at data. To gain the data needed to provide the measures and metrics results, well clear, consistent and well-maintained data ...
