We have a date in the diary but where shall we hold the PMO Flashmob? I’ve always wanted to do this, ever since I heard about Agile on a Bench (in a park, at lunchtime). We have the 12th July pencilled in the diary – should we do it? where? what time? You decide*   *there’s more chance of pulling this off if its in the UK somewhere!

Agile PMO: Fact or Fiction? \\ 25th Sept – London: Charity Night

We’re teaming up with Agile Business Conference in September for a special event – drinks, pizza and a PMO panel session. It takes place at our favourite spot – The Ticketmaster Bar, based in Angel Islington. Takes place Tuesday 25th September from 6.30pm. What its all about It’s the night before the Agile Business Conference kicks off (PMO Flashmobbers can grab a 10% discount on tickets with the code: FLASHMOB2018) and we thought what a great idea to bring one of the biggest subjects we’ve been talking about for the last few years and be a part of the lead ...

PMO Books and Birthday Cake

PMO Flashmob is all about meeting up with others who work in PMO and chatting about PMO stuff. We all know that people have different places to go for new knowledge – and if you’re working in PMO, you’ll know its a continual learning process! We thought for the fifth birthday in the pub we would try out the PMO Book Club. The idea is simple – just share with the audience a book, or any resource you’ve come across which you’ve learnt a lot from. The idea is simple – but it takes guts to get up there in ...

My First PMO Flashmob

On the 17th May, I attended my first PMO Flashmob, the event on this occasion was more specifically known as PMO Serious Play, held in Manchester. The idea behind this session is to learn and explore the mindsets and behaviours of the PMO supporting Agile based projects and programmes through playing with Lego. Upon arrival, at the event, I received a warm welcome and introductions all round. There was also a vast selection of drinks available including tea/coffee, orange juice, coke and even wine and beer! All included in the session. Before getting called through to our training room there ...

Agile Project Governance

We headed over to Bristol last month, lovely weather to be tucked up inside learning about Agile Project Governance but definitely worth it. There were so many little gems I took away and I know that other PMO Flashmobbers there on the night had a lot of their questions answered. Essentially we were all there to find out what exactly changes when projects are being delivered in an Agile way – when compared to traditional projects. And if something changes what does the PMO have to know about – and what do they have to do about it? You need ...
