The PMO Role in Change Management

This evening’s session is all about the role of the PMO in Change Management.

It’s an area of conversation that has been popping up more and more frequently, the impact of changes on organisations and individuals, especially in the whole programme and project management world.

What is interesting is that PMOs do not really have a recognised role in Change Management yet we are there to support and improve programme and project management capability in all its facets.

This is an ideal topic for the PMO Flashmob as we look to learn more about emerging practices such as this.

We have Ranjit Sidhu joining us to help us explore this topic further. Ranjit is a brilliant change management specialist who teaches this stuff all the time. She’s also part of the team who put together the Change Management Institute’s Effective Change Manager book too. Ideal for us to pick her brains.

More about that book:

effective-change-managerChange 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.
