PMO Competency Framework

The PMO Competency Framework

Three years in the making

Driven by the countless conversations about the lack of a competency framework and assessment available to the people who work in PMOs, PMO Flashmob took action.

Kicking off in 2017 we crowdsourced knowledge and experience from the PMO Flashmob community. Over 68 of you globally got involved in the initial writing activity to start bring the PMO Competency Framework to live. Over months we worked away, holding a writing weekend away, hosting a PMO Flashmob event to keep getting those insights. We’ve worked with HR specialists in Competency Frameworks; subject matter experts in aspects of P3M delivery; forged links with other communities to help our own knowledge development.

It was a mammoth task and important for us to know that the PMO Competency Framework is not just the work of a small group of people.

It’s been created by the PMO community for the PMO community.

The PMO Competency Framework is now ready for review.
