Evolving PMO Services to Support Waterfall and Agile – 19th March – London

PMO Flashmob is back in London on Thursday 19th March at the ‘Never Knowingly Undersold’ retailer and Christmas ad we all wait for – John Lewis. By popular demand, we have John McIntyre with us (recently did the session in Coventry that everyone wanted to see!). This session is very, very similar! This is what its all about: Many PMOs do not have the luxury of focussing solely on Waterfall or Agile projects. Their challenge is to evolve their service offering to support the Waterfall projects, whilst juggling an increasing number of Agile projects in the portfolio. During this session, ...

Automating PMO Using Robotics and AI – Leeds / 23rd April

We’re back in Leeds on the 23rd April and special thanks to the team at Yorkshire Building Society for hosting this evening session in the centre of Leeds. This evening’s session is led by Lindsay Scott and John McIntyre, and it’s a subject that many PMO practitioners have perhaps not given much thought to yet. In a recent PwC Annual Global CEO survey (2019) 85% of CEOs agreed that AI will significantly change the way they do business in the next five years. PMI report in their Pulse of the Profession (2019) stated that there will be a shift from ...

Benefits Management – A Thinking Tool for the PMO

Many people do not fully understand benefits, see them as a side-activity unconnected to the main activities of project, programme or change management – or just do not consider them at all. Benefits management is not an activity, it is a mind-set. Described as ‘the golden thread’ from business case to business as usual, benefits are the reason we invest in doing things differently. In this interactive session, PMO Flashmobbers will learn what benefits are, how they are identified and begin to develop an understanding of the part we all play in realising them. Attendees will learn, through practical exercises, ...

Cyril – The PMOBot

This is the session to take a look at if you’re a bit of a technophobe. You’ve probably heard about Artificial Intelligence and dismissed it as science-fiction that has no place in the workplace. To be honest, I was like that too, yet there’s definitely something in it and it probably will be changing the way we work in the future – and probably not as far away as we think. Robotic Process Automation or RPA, is one of the those AI technologies that definitely has benefits for the PMO. Who wouldn’t like to see some of the more repetitive, ...

The Benefits Landscape

Last week was the Benefits Management night over at Direct Line in Leeds. It was a stonker of a night and we’ve still not got the full video session done yet. Here’s a taster of what’s to come, the scene-setting for the night where PMO Flashmobbers were not only listening to a great session but also getting involved in a really practical session that you can use with anyone in the organisation. So what are benefits? Here’s Claire kicking off with the benefits landscape: You need to login to view the rest of the content. Please Login. Not a Member? ...

Top Ten Trends in PMO for 2020

Take last years for example: Here are last year’s trends (the full article can be found here): Project data analytics really cannot be ignored and 2019 is the year where we start to learn what it is all about and how the PMO can utilise it. Making the case for automation – machine learning, AI and robotic process automation ...
