Birmingham \\ PMO Mini-Masterclass – 15th February

We are delighted to be back in Birmingham for a PMO Mini-Masterclass on the Role of the PMO in Driving PPM Maturity.  Our hosts are Energy Systems Catapult in their new offices on Priory Queensway:

7th Floor, Cannon House
18 Priory Queensway
B4 6BS

‘Maturity’ seems to have been one of those words we’ve frequently heard talked about in PMO circles this year – along with value, evolution and agile. So we thought we should take a closer look at it and at the same time come back to Birmingham for our first PMO Mini-Masterclass.

The evening will focus on a key role of the PMO – improving programme and project delivery capability of the organisation – whether that be at programme, department, division or corporate level.  The Masterclass will walk through a range of models, tools and techniques that can help us identify what needs to be done; approaches on how it can be done and what needs to be in place to make it happen.

The session will include a presentation plus a number of interactive sessions with the emphasis on helping you develop practical steps you can take back to use in your organisation.

The evening kicks off at 6pm with the main session starting at 6.30pm. The session will finish at 8pm – and in true PMO Flashmob style we’ll head to the nearest pub to carry on the conversation.

The session costs £24 which includes refreshments.
