Scaled Agile and the PMO – Thursday 24th September – Virtual

PMO Flashmob is back in its regular monthly evening sessions – still virtual for now but hoping we’re back on the road soon. We kick off Autumn 2020 with a session focused on Scaled Agile – SAFe® and the PMO. It’s an Agile framework which a lot of PMO practitioners have taken an interest in so we thought it was time we found out more about it and gained some insights into what SAFe® is and what the PMO needs to know. About the Session Agile frameworks such as Scrum work really well for small teams of software developers. But ...

The PMO Meets Emotional and Personal Intelligence – Thursday 1st October – Virtual

In a special event on Thursday 1st October to mark the Major Projects Association conference fringe, PMO Flashmob gets emotional. We’re delighted to have Geoff Crane join us to lead the session as we go beyond emotional intelligence to personal intelligence. Geoff is a great friend of PMO Flashmob and joined the PMO Conference back in 2018. Here’s a little about Geoff: As a pioneer in the field of motivational intelligence, he has written numerous articles on the importance of emotional and social skills in the workforce.

DevOps and the PMO – Thursday 22nd October – Virtual

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. DevOps is a combination of software development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops) and is focused on continuous delivery. An example would be an ever-evolving financial or business app – there is no end date as such. Another way of looking at it is not so much project management as product management. DevOps is not an area that PMO ...

PMO Music to Our Ears

Every so often it’s good to take a sideways view at PMO – think differently, a bit of lateral thinking, that kind of thing. During the pandemic on the weekly #PMOwfh sessions, we liked to throw in a few different things and in this article, it was all about what we can learn from music. So sit back whilst we bring wedding singers, jazz bands, Roger Daltrey and Elvis to the PMO context and hopefully give you a little food for thought – or music to your ears.

Emerging from Lockdown with PMO Flashmob

Well, it’s been 23 weeks since we went into lockdown with the COVID-19 pandemic and we started up the weekly #PMOwfh sessions to keep us all sane and connected with each other. They came to an end last week – for a couple of reasons. It feels like a new term has started – children back to school, furlough coming to an end soon, it feels like we need to change gear in some way. We saw the numbers on the session start to drop off as people found work again, or started getting snowed under with their own workloads. ...

Principles for Project Success

In July 2020, the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA), a government organisation, released a white paper which focused on eight principles, “a quick guide for practitioners on things to get right for any project to succeed” The IPA is the UK government’s centre of expertise for infrastructure and major projects and is aligned with the Cabinet Office and the Treasury. If you’ve not seen the paper, take a look at it here. We were specifically interested in what the principles for project success are and take another look at the PMO Principles in light of them.  The challenge for PMOs ...
