Practical Steps for Getting into Project Co-ordination

I held a careers coaching session the other day for someone looking to get into a project co-ordination role for the first time. I’m conscious that a lot of the PMO Flashmob topics and themes at events might not be newbie friendly and perhaps we should look into doing something like this in the future. What made me write this article was that some of the things that came up in the career session would be beneficial for other people too. You might be reading this as an experienced PMO practitioner, in which case, great! Make sure you add any ...

Really Learning Lessons

Do we really learn lessons from our projects? It’s an area of project management that brings much eye-rolling yet the basic premise of Lessons Learnt is something that we all agree is – if done well, will really make a difference to the successful project rate as well as improving performance (and morale) of people working on projects.
