Serious PMO Play – Manchester \\ 17th May

PMO Flashmob is back in Manchester, slap bang in the middle of the Northern Quarter for a night of Serious PMO Play on Thursday 17th May 2018.

It takes place at:

51 Lever St.
Manchester M1 1FN

Starting at 6pm until 8pm, session costs £15 and includes drinks and nibbles.


This is the third session we’ve ran and it’s a great event for a number of reasons – it’s a good way to meet others; the techniques involved are great for making you think differently but also being able to articulate things differently too. It’s a funny night, plus you can get a little jealous of some people’s creations! Part of the evening – when you’ve had a few practice runs – is to explore the Agile stuff:

We’re combining serious games and play with one of our most popular topics at the moment – Agile.

Specifically, this evening session is all about exploring the mindsets and behaviours that are commonplace with Agile projects and programmes. We’ll be playing to explore how by understanding these behaviours we can better deliver the right services and perhaps more importantly the right PMO approach.

We’re in the Northern Quarter with Parag Gogate from Change Innovation Lab.

Take a look at the overview from the night in London to get a flavour of what you can expect.

The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology is an innovative, experimental process designed to enhance innovation and business performance. It is based on research which shows that this kind of hands-on, minds-on learning produces a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the world and its possibilities. The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology deepens the reflection process and supports an effective dialogue – for everyone in the organisation. The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology taps into the human ability to imagine – to describe and make sense of the issues at hand, to initiate change and improvement, and even to create something radically new.
