PMO Learning’s Eileen Roden presented a session at the British Computer Society (BCS) The Chartered Institute of IT’s offices in Covent Garden, London. We’ve added this session to the PMO Flashmob website because we think you might like the content.
The BCS PROMS-G event is the meetup for project management practitioners working in IT [ you can take a look at other events they run here]
The event saw attendance fom both project managers and PMO practitioners and Eileen’s session focused on a couple of things. First the role an effective PMO can play in driving and supporting successful delivery, from setting up the organisation’s delivery infrastructure and ecosystem to pure administrative support (and everything in-between). It also covered how project managers engage with the PMO and identified how best the PMO can help, within the context of their other roles across the organisation. Second the session also looked at some of the challenges when dealing with PMOs (particularly an ineffective PMO) and explored strategies and tactics to get the best from them.
