PMO Flashmob kicks off with the Autumn schedule with our first event in London. It takes place on Thursday 19th September at Valtech in the Angel Islington area.

The Adaptive PMO

I’ve been hearing the term ‘adaptive PMO’ for a while and wanted to pull some bits together from various places that help us to understand what is meant by that term. It’s simple really:     Of course the PMO should be changing and flexing to serve the business and the programme and project elements. It requires a few things – the most important perhaps is understanding how the business is changing, in what direction it’s heading. Then there’s the act of flexing and changing the PMO itself – the who, what, why, where, when and hows come into it. ...

Soft Skills and the PMO Practitioner

In the last webinar we did, there was a question about soft skills and PMO practitioners today. You can see the webinar [here] The session was abot maturity – getting better at what the PMO does as well as the need for the organisation to mature in the way it delivers its programmes and projects too. An obvious part of that is how we, as PMO practitioners, also view maturity in the way we work – not just the ‘hard skills’ stuff but also how we behave and work with others – the soft skills stuff. The four soft skills ...

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 ...
