The Sponsor and the PMO || Thursday 26th November

We’re back with another evening session taking place on Thursday 26th November at 6pm until 8pm.

The Sponsor (programme or project) is a key player in programme and project delivery, but many PMOs still aim their services at the Programme and Project Managers.

Why is that? Is the PMO missing a vital customer – arguably one of the most important roles in the whole delivery chain?

During this evening session, we’ll look at some of the reasons why this is and how to overcome them.

We’ll consider the key value-added services that can be offered by the PMO for the benefits of the sponsor – and what’s needed by the PMO team in terms of skills and experience to support that.

This session is a good one for anyone working in a PMO which offers services to the business – whether that’s at project, programme or portfolio – and for PMO practitioners looking to up their value by working with and supporting senior management.

The session is delivered by Eileen Roden – she’s also delivering the PMO Learning Project Sponsorship and the PMO course so you’ll gain some great insights.
