Are you proud about what your PMO has achieved?
That’s the first step in taking part in something like APM’s PMO of the Year Award – you need to proud of your achievements and be ready to share the story with the wider industry and community.
I caught up with Justin Byrd who has done just that. Justin is a great PMO Flashmob supporter – he’s also the Head of the EMEIA Portfolio Office (EPO) at Fujitsu, the IT Technology and Services organisation.
The EPO has a story to tell and one which highlights not only why they could be worthy winners of the Award in November, also what can be achieved in four years.
The EPO has journeyed from an administrative support function into a PMO which consistently adds real tangible value to the PPM function and to the wider business. The drive towards becoming a finalist for the Award has stemmed from taking that time to recognise the achievements of all 211 PMO professionals that make up Fujitsu’s PMO service and as a way to benchmark the PMO externally.
