It’s that time of year again when we take a look into the possibilities and opportunities in the PMO world this year. We’ve been doing these articles for a couple of years and we don’t tend to be too far out. 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 ...

PMO Retrospective 2019

Can you remember when 2020 was way off in the future – at 10 years old I was convinced we would be wearing lots of silver and the ZX Spectrum would be a distant memory! So here we are, nearly 2020, but before that, we wanted to bring a final webinar to you before we get there. In this session, we’ll be taking a look at 2019. It’s like all the magazines and supplements do at this time of year – a retrospective news review, take a whistlestop tour of what happened and what we learnt. You need to login ...

DARPEC for PMO

How bad is that title? Acronym overload! Put that aside for a moment and let’s look at DARPEC. It’s a tool that is featured in a book called, “The Idea Generator” with a subtitle, “15 clever thinking tools to create winning ideas quickly”. It’s a tool or approach you can use to “understand how every interaction has six generic aspects” and how you can deconstruct any challenge or situation by deconstructing the six aspects individually. DARPEC stands for: D – Deliverer A – Action R – Recipient P – Process E – Environment C – Constraints   For each issue ...

Lori is also the co-author of Business Storytelling for Dummies which also formed the basis for a workshop we did before ...
