We head to the BBC this month for an evening about the role of the PMO in Change Management.
Following on from the introductory PMO and change management session we ran back in March 2015, we highlighted one particular role for the PMO in change management:
Can the PMO assist on projects with the change management bits? I’m thinking PMOs are pretty good at facilitating, holding workshops, running feedback mechanisms, capturing and disseminating good news stories.
This evening is focused on getting into some of the real practical tools and techniques that are used in change management and the PMO Flashmobbers will be trying their hand at using these with some interesting and varied change management scenarios.
Our hosts for the evening are the PMO team at the BBC alongside Ranjit Sidhu – our previous change management expert.
Join us from 6pm – starting at 6.30pm until 8pm. Drink and nibbles available throughout the evening.

More about that book:
Change Management is starting to be seen as a profession in its own right. It has taken a long time to get here, even though people have been managing change in one way or another for centuries. There is plenty of literature about managing organisational change and it comes from many different disciplines and perspectives. Some people come at it from an organisational development perspective concerning themselves with the human aspects of change, others through the project and programme management route more concerned with planning for and controlling change within organisations.
Up until recently there has been no recognised standard for professional change managers. Until now that is. The Change Management Body of Knowledge (CMBoK) has been developed to provide a common reference of what effective change management professionals can be expected to know and offers a basis for standardised best practice.
