The PMO Study: Emotional and Personal Intelligence

>> Take part in The PMO Study: Emotional and Personal Intelligence One moment you’re focused on the executive team; the next, you’re worried about the project manager. Something in your world doesn’t “feel right” so you’re using all your senses to find that one thing that’s off. You don’t get to stop, though—fires are burning, and they need your attention. Once again, the organization’s goals need realignment while the team’s morale needs improvement. You want some time to think—to focus on just one task—but there’s no time. “I wonder how that new team member’s getting on,” you ask yourself in a rare quiet moment. You hear yourself mutter, “Some support sure would ...

The Sponsor and the PMO || Thursday 26th November

We’re back with another evening session taking place on Thursday 26th November at 6pm until 8pm. The Sponsor (programme or project) is a key player in programme and project delivery, but many PMOs still aim their services at the Programme and Project Managers. Why is that? Is the PMO missing a vital customer – arguably one of the most important roles in the whole delivery chain? During this evening session, we’ll look at some of the reasons why this is and how to overcome them. We’ll consider the key value-added services that can be offered by the PMO for the ...

DevOps and the PMO – Supporting Continuous Delivery

Consider this image we shared in a session a couple of years ago now. You might have heard the term ‘bimodal’ – adopted to demonstrate that the PMO supports both traditional waterfall projects and Agile-led projects. But that’s not the case, the term if anything should be ‘trimodal’ because the PMO is increasingly supporting DevOps too. The PMO is there to support any type of change delivery and over the last five years or more the focus has been on understanding change being delivered using Agile philosophies. In this article, we turn to understand the third one on the list ...

Scaled Agile and the (Portfolio) PMO

Scaled Agile is all about business agility – combining Lean, Agile, and DevOps principles, practices and skills. The PMO has got interested for a couple of reasons: PMOs have been supporting the adoption of Agile and Lean approaches at the project level over the last five years or so. DevOps – or continuous delivery, has also become a way for teams to deliver change and the PMO wants to understand and support that. Ultimately the PMO is there to support change activities across a business regardless of what approach is used – but they need to first understand the approaches ...

A Thinking Tool for the PMO

We talk a lot about PMO practitioners being curious – wanting to try different approaches and think differently about the work they do. It’s never easy to find the time to take a step back to think – even more so to find the time for the PMO team to come together with the sole aim of thinking about what we do and how we might change that. PMO leaders and managers are still finding ways to engage with their teams through the pandemic – hosting “away” days virtually – using that time for micro-learning, exercises and sharing insights and ...
